This makes me so incredibly nervous. Keep an eye on the dogs eyes! "WHALE EYE" coupled with ears back, gaze aversion, & head turn away from the baby. The dog even looks for guidance from the guardian (owner) as the dog is truly saying, "THIS IS JUST TOO MUCH FOR ME!" The dog shows his belly when the child reaches for him! This dog needs help! This interaction is NOT SAFE. This is why I continue to do what I do. Teach K9 body language and educate families on safe baby & dog interactions. What level do you think this dog will stop at to show that he's not comfortable with this baby?? A growl, a snap, a ...
I'm 1 month in. It's been 1 month since my loved Bali passed away. I've been wanting to say my thank you's for everyones support for some time now, but when I think I hear Bali, expect her to greet me when I return home, or see all the empty spots around it feels like a gut-punch, my heart rips, and then the tears come. This page is suppose to be "positive" and this post is sad, but it does show the raw-ness and importance of our loved furry family members. I didn't think that one day I would help dogs and their families beyond being a RVT, but here I am. Looking back at the very 1st photo of Bali as a pup and then looking at my current logo somehow there's a correlation between the two. Yes, the star on Bali's chest was accentuated on my logo on purpose, but seeing the red, white, and blue within the logo and then seeing her bandana as a pup (which was provided by her foster mom) really made me realize how life makes you take notice. Maybe a coincidence, maybe something more. So for all those who made heartfelt comments and for those that addressed Bali's passing as if you would a human passing away... thank you. The flowers, cards, poems, chats, and support has really helped me strive onward and it brings me peace that you all know her importance. With much love back to you all.
