The Z Dogs

Heather asked how the Z-Dogs are transitioning with the girls. They are doing well with the girls. We did bring home baby blankets so the dogs could get accustomed to their smell. They sniffed a few times and walked away. I don't really know what I expected - barks of glee? They are still sort of non-committal now that the babies are home. They do a bit of a "hover-sniff" around them and then normally go lay down. I've seen a few toe-licks here and there, but nothing to be worried about.

I know the dogs will love the girls much more when solid foods are involved and there are plenty of spills on the floor. Zoe is much more of the mama dog around them, and Zeus tends to sleep a lot and stay out of our way. We are trying our best to make sure that the dogs still get plenty of attention, but I will say it's a lot harder than we imagined. Of course, our walks are the best when we have the double stroller AKA the train, plus two dogs. All people can do is laugh or make comments about how we have our hands full. Yeah, we kind of figured that one out on our own!

Your pups are so big and pretty! They will no doubt love the girls more as they get older.

Our black lab, Max, adores our friends' and families' toddlers, especially the little girls! He keeps his distance from babies, though.

Glad to hear that the furry babies are doing ok with their new sisters! :)

I think it's cute that you have two babies and two dogs! I'm glad they are transitioning to their new "sisters" well!

My female lab loved my newborn daughter. She used to sneak up to the bouncy seat and very gently take off her socks so she could keep them. She would lie next to her seat when the baby was napping and watch over her. So cute!
