Puppy Sitter

Posted on: February 22, 2010

How to integrate a puppy and a newborn? This question had been floating around in our minds since we adopted Frasier last April. When we got Frasier we knew we were expecting a baby in October, but seeing as we I really wanted a dog, we thought getting a pup before the baby was born would be a good idea as it would give us time to train him. So fine, one day I went out to get the pup and then the training and fun began.

Once we brought Niko home from the hospital, our philosophy was integration: Frasier wouldn’t be excluded from our family, just because he has four legs, a crazy tail and a spunky personality. I mean overall he is actually quite predictable, and although I don’t think you can ever trust a four legged friend 100% around a child, over the last few months our trust factor has risen considerably. Frasier mostly shows signs of curiosity towards Niko, giving him lots of puppy love and kisses. So much so, that I think we may have found a permanent babysitter for our little guy.

Borys and I often wonder who we will get to babysit Niko when the time comes? Now, I think we may have found a solution. And who is this new sitter? Frasier, of course! Just look how well Frasier is tolerating the little guy snuggling right in to him.  I am sure with a few short tutorials on diapers and feeding, he would catch on and be able to take care of Niko, no problem. After all, poodles are one of the smartest breeds, and his rates would have to be affordable considering we already supply his room and board!

As you can see in the pictures below, Frasier thinks putting Niko to sleep is as easy as one, two three. All it takes is:

1) A kiss to the hand

2) A kiss to the shoulder

3) A kiss to the head

And presto, baby N is sawing logs! Easy peasy. Frasier’s a natural! Let the babysitting begin.

Note: Pay no attention to the random hand in the right of the photos. It in no way signifies a lack of trust for the dog or any sort of feeling that these kisses may turn into love nips and then in fact have to be quickly nipped in the bud – no it does not signify that at all!

Little Coco says hi Weffy!

your puppy is starting to get that neglected look of first child forgotten … mom you need to give him a haircut so he can see whose fingers he is licking. 🙂

tell me about it! I know he needs a haircut, but Borys insists he needs this hair for the winter! Trust me, as soon as it warms up a little, he will be getting a good once over with the old clippers!

[…] kind of cute when Niko leans over in his chair, and reaches out, only to have Frasier reciprocate! Two little pals, just enjoying each others […]
