My aunt said something about my dog today. Now im worried...
My aunt just had her baby 5 days ago so we went over to her house today to meet the new baby. I asked how her dog was doing with the new baby. He's a chihuahua and she said he loves just sitting near the baby and watching over him. That he's such a good guard dog over the baby.
Then she gives me this serious look and says you gotta get rid of your dog. Now. Before your baby is born. He won't learn you can't control him he jumps on anyone and what are you gonna do when he jumps up on your baby? You OK with picking dog hair off the bottles and out of his clothes where its gonna stick? Your already battling it as it is. Its not right to allow him around the baby and get his nasty dog hair all over the baby. To jump on a newborn and hurt him it just isn't safe to keep him.
Well I've been halfway to tears most of the evening about this because really she's right. And as annoying and stuoud as the dog is the few short months we have had him, we have all fallen in love with him. I tried talking to my husband about it. I asked if we could just leave him outside on his runner during the day and at bedtime bring him in to his cage to sleep? That just pissed my husband off and yes like I'd rather give him away than keep him chained up all day.
But honestly I don't wanna give him up. Even if its just for the kids ya know....
But he just won't learn!!! He won't stay down he won't stop jumping and the dog hair clings to everything. I have found dog hair in a jar of cream cheese its in my bed it clings to our clothes and ends up in the washer and dryer. I just can't beat it.
Idk..... I just needed to be whine a little I suppose. Its sad and its gonna break my kids hearts
