Your dog knows you’re pregnant, it just doesn’t know how many puppies you’re going to have 🙂
Like so many young couples, before we became human parents we became dog parents. And while our baby was somewhat of a surprise, our puppy was carefully discussed and chosen. That’s not to say we knew what we were getting into when I picked up Jelly the Goldendoodle from a breeder on the way home from the wedding. Actually going from having no responsibility outside of myself to having a puppy who needed CONSTANT supervision and attention was a ruder awakening than when we had our daughter. I had never had that type of responsibility before. And although I was really nervous about how our baby and dog would do together, I’m so glad we had Jelly to shock us out of some of our post-college self-centeredness before the rest of it was stripped away with a baby.
