I asked a question several months ago about how I should go about introducing my chihuahua to my new baby, I was a little nervous that he would consider a baby as an interloper on his turf and go berserk...like he does anytime ANYONE other then me, my husband or our 4 yr old daughter is in our home...
A CM mama...and I honest to God cannot remember who (I selected BA and closed the question down about a month ago) suggested that I have my husband bring home one of the blankets that the baby was swaddled in from the hospital and put it in the dogs cage so he can get used to the new scent... It worked so well I'm wondering if my husband hired the dog whisperer behind my back LOL when we brought Sonny home yesterday I sat on the couch with him while DH let Tobasco (dog) out of his cage...he jumped on the couch and sniffed the baby's head...while DH held him by the collar..just in case...he sniffed for a LONG time...then...he layed down next to me and went to sleep LMAO!!!
I have had NO PROBLEMS at all!!! He sniffs the baby alot but that's pretty much it...if I'm holding Sonny, he will lay down next to me, if I'm not he will try to get into my lap....he has been totally awesome about the whole thing SOooooo...I wanted to thank the CM mama who told me to put the blanket in Tobasco's cage..I don't remember who you are but I'm sure you know if you told me that or not so...Thanx =) lol.....you have made my life ALOT easier
