Kids and Pets
How does your little one do with your pets? Do they like to play with them and pet them or do they run your pets off? Share a picture of your little one with your pets if you've got them.

Jackson likes our dogs and loves to give them kisses. Although sometimes he is not as gentle as I think he should be with themm.

Jacob loves our dogs but he mostly likes to play in the dog beds. He will run the dogs out of their dog beds so he can play in them. He does love to pet them but our 2 little dogs are scared of him so they run away. Our golden retriever loves him though and will let jacob roll on her and pet her all the time.

Here is Jacob sitting in the dog bed.

OMG his face cracks me up!! So innocently guilty, you can see it!!
I will post a belly pic and my Otis later after I eat something. His nails are razor sharp though, I haven't cut 'em in several months. I have to wear long sleeves when I mess with him otherwise he cuts me up. :o

So cute! We have two beagles, who are not usually kid friendly as they are hunting dogs, however they have always been gentle with children, and our male beagle absolutely loves our son and sleeps on his bed. He will let our son lie right on top of him while watching TV.

Our cats our mean. They were wild when I rescued them 10 years ago and hate everyone except me. They scratch our son if he approaches them and when others come into the house, they hide in the basement. DH says he's going to bring them to the local chinese restaurant if we ever run low on cash.

Re: Kids and Pets
I have a very elderly Beagle. She's a retired deer hound. She'd still like to hunt but she's so old I don't think she could come back again. She's never been great with kids but she sleeps so much of her time now. Wen the baby comes we are going to have a gate between the kitchen and the living room and the dog can have the kitchen.

It may be lot, though, as we are not sure how much time we have left. She was thirteen in June and has had a great life. So if we get a puppy I'm not sure how we will handle the puppy / child issue.

Re: Kids and Pets
Lol, husbands sure think it's funny to joke about eating pets. Mine is guilty of it too. ;)
Here is me and Otis today. I wouldn't dare put a baby around him... he is a sweetheart but if he got spooked and decided to bite he could do some serious damage! He has his own small patio room so I don't have to worry about bird on baby contact at all, but I'm sure a baby would be freaked out by a parrot anyways. I was scared to death of parrots when I was small.

I didn't feel like changing clothes to long-sleeve and didn't want him to mess up my jacket so I risked him scratching me. Surprisingly, I only have 1 tiny puncture mark on my hand where his nail was poking me. Did I mention I REALLY need to clip his nails?? If I am sneaky he doesn't even notice when I do it but I'm so lazy....

Re: Kids and Pets
Amy I love your dress. So cute.

My DH jokes all the time about roasting and eating our little shizu. He was my dog before we got married and he is all the time trying to get on the couch or scratching on the door if he's outside. Drives DH crazy so he says that Jake is our little piggy and he's going to roast him..lol.

Re: Kids and Pets
Haha about roasting/selling/eating your pets...lol.

Amy, I agree your dress is so pretty, and Otis is a pretty bird! So colorful.

We have a black lab who is about 4 or 5 years old, and a tabby cat who I think is about 7. Ethan loves both of them. He will try to ride Abby the black lab, and she is pretty tolerant of him, but doesn't seek him out for play. She is a Daddy's girl and prefers Josh to anyone else. The cat, Snickers, is a sweet cat who is very tolerant of kids. I wasn't sure how he would act before Ethan was born, but he will take a lot of abuse. Ethan when he was littler would pull Snickers' whiskers, ears, tail, etc and that cat would just look perturbed, and eventually walk away but never has scratched or bitten or even growled at Ethan.
It was too funny today, Snickers came up to Kody while Kody was laying on his back and was sniffing his head, and rubbing his kitty face on Kody's head. Then he just laid next to him despite Kody whacking him with his little hands several times. Haha. Silly cat.

Re: Kids and Pets
Dexter claimed Marsi right after she was born. It took a while Longer for Jimmy to accept her.

Re: Kids and Pets
All of these furbabies are so cute!

I love your Macaw, Amy, my aunt used to have one, she might still have him, I am really not sure...lol!

We have a Chocolate Lab, Mocha, that is GREAT with children. She is so tolerant, if the girls are messing with her, she just lies there and takes it, but gives us this look like "really?"...lol!

Mocha giving Addy kisses :)
