Baby love...

Baby love....that is my Grace's motto.
(12 yo blind yellow lab)

One day, when GD- Kaitlyn was just a newborn, she and her mom came to visit. kaitlyn was fussing...which turned into crying and then to babies often do.

Mom was still nursing...and Grace, who couldnt see the baby, certainly heard the baby.

So Grace sat by moms legs and NUDGED the baby up against moms chest...while mom started to nurse. And Grace held her head against the baby for the longest time, making sure she was snuggly being fed.

Now, that baby is 8 months old and sitting up. Grace is so patient with her. Kaitlyn pulls hair, screams and pounds (well, as hard as those little fists can, which is not much)...and Grace sits there, nudges forward to get closer and contently allows the baby to play for as long as she wants. Then Grace licks the baby and wags her tail.

Grace has true baby love. I guess she knows she is in the 'Gramma' stage of her life too.

Grace's wounds are healing nicely. She is not as willing to venture outside...and when she does, she stays close to home.

She is napping at my feet as I write this. Her favorite spot in life is where she feels the safest....chuckle...which is often in my 90 lb- baby loving lap dog.
