Families Surround Each Other


Sweet babies bond with sweet dogs:




Dogs sense needs before they are even spoken.



Dogs protect their families. They surround the babies with their love.




And babies surround their dogs with love, too.

  1. Yes, dogs do sense what we feel, what is needed and give comfort, Susan. We are at an age now when a dog would probably outlive us, so being cowardly we do not have one. Having said that, I am forgetting that we have moved into a warden assisted flat where pets are not allowed. But we have our memories. And the flat is next to the ‘Guide dogs for the Blind’ building, and from the large picture window of the flat we can see the labradors being trained 🌹

    1. At least you can watch the labs, which are the best dogs for assistance from those who have trained them.

  2. Children and dogs make a great team. My children have always had dogs. Now so do their children and grandchildren.

    1. Our gr-children are fortunate to have their dogs. Lucy Goosey, Scrumpy, and Porter are part of their own families.

  3. I worked with autistic children for many years and saw them bond with all sorts of animals in many ways. We had regular visits from therapy dogs.

    1. Not many people have spent time with an autistic child, so I am thrilled to get your comment. I have an autistic nephew (who has a BA in forestry). Also have had mainstreamed autistic students in my clas. Therapy dogs are amazing.

    1. With so many military returning from Iraq with PTSD, therapy dogs save so many lives.

  5. Sharing our lives with animals from a different species to our own is ALWAYS wonderful. And a joy.

    1. When your life is happier because your dog is there, well then, that is part of God's plan/

  11. Dogs and kids area a great match indeed, as long as both are trained well with one another. Something some parents don't take the time to do and then wonder why they dog and/or kid plays rough or bites.

    1. When the dog licks the baby, I got teary. And when the autistic child found help in that dog, I really cried.

    1. When I see a person walking their dogs here, I am just a bit jealous.

  15. Think my favorite was the dog tucking in the baby. The protective dogs reminded me why I was never spanked as a child. Our toy fox terrier tried to bite the ankles of my Mom the one time she tried to swat me on my diaper. From then on I got talked to or punished--no spankings:)

  16. Lovely. I grew up with a dog and loved him dearly. Cats have been a better match with our daughter.

  17. What a delight-FULL post! I feel sorry for those children raised without the company of a fur-sibling. Their devotion is humbling.

  19. These are so sweet. While I'm more a cat person, I grew up with dogs and a wonderful dog is indeed a fine friend!
