We love getting check-ins from our adopters, and this one came with cute baby videos. What fun!
Some of you might remember Sadie Mae ... the cute blue bombshell that landed in our Pit Bull Hall program in '06 after suffering crushing injuries (dog bites) to her front legs. Proud adopters Ingrid and Hayden have done such a nice job introducing their son Tiger to Sadie, and it shows in this video - where both dog and Tiger are being meticulously coached in proper touch. Such a great example. And they're getting ready to do it again with another baby on the way.
Sharing the Learning. Hat tips to Brent Toellner for highlighting the Dogs & Storks website with info for expecting families with dogs at home. Brent routinely investigates dog-related incidents that involve children in an effort to help us all wake up to the importance of parental responsibility. It's not always easy to read the details, but so very important if we ever hope to evolve into a smarter society that safeguards its children from unnecessary harm. Here's a recent interview with the Dogs and Storks founder, Jennifer Shryock.
Thanks to Ingrid and Hayden and all the other 'wide-awake' parents out there who are setting the example.
