Baby Makes Four

As most of you know, Stanley Shih-tzu has been our surrogate child for the past two years. Generally he is pretty good with kids, but I am starting to get concerned about his transition to the new addition. Since we have gotten the nursery into somewhat of an order, he has "left his mark" in the room twice, and when he is in the nursery with us, he barks and scratches at the crib and bassinette. We have now tried carrying Stanley around the nursery and explaining everything to him per my mom's suggestion, and when he continued barking at the crib and bassinette, we finally decided to just put him in them. He sniffed around, and it has seemed to help. Any other suggestions?

  1. There is a girl from theNest.com who wrote a website on how to prepare your dog for a new baby in the house. I think her advice makes a lot of sense and we've been trying to follow her guidance. Scout is pretty accustomed to being the center of attention, so I think we have an adjustment ahead of us, too!
