A boy and his dog

You're probably thinking, oh what a cute picture, and yes it is cute. The two of them together is adorable. I'm very happy that they'll have each other to grow up with. Sometimes I wish that I had a dog growing up. And then, and then I walk in on the dog (Alfred) and Gideon going through the garbage together, Gideon dumping out the dogs food for the tenth time that day and the oh so popular spilling the dogs water all down the front of his clothes.
The king of all dog and baby disasters though, is when I left the two of them alone for about 10 minutes to use the bathroom and came out to find that they had gotten into a wet diaper. Yes, that's right I said a wet diaper. When I say got into, I mean the dog ripped into the diaper and he and the baby were flinging the wet granules all over the living room floor. Talk about disgusting. You don't realize how absorbant diapers really are until you have one scattered all over the living room. Cleaning up this one is not on my fun to do list. The two of them together can get into a lot of mischief. Joe calls them co-comspiritors. Even with all the trouble that the two of them cause together, it had been fun to see them play and love on each other. I could never stay mad at either one, especially when they look up at me with those cute puppy eyes.

Man!That pic of them is sooo cute. I am a huge fan of kids growing up with a dog. I got so frustrated with the twins getting into our dogs food/water that I ended up putting it in our laundry room/pantry. I then put a doggy door on the door and childproof door knob. Problem solved...until one of them got stuck trying to crawl through the doggy door! But it really did save my life!

There certainly is something sweet about a boy and his dog. You're so patient! I'd be crazy. Hope things are going well for you. It's so awesome to be able to catch up with people because of their blog.

I can think of exactly one way in which the Diaper Incident could have been worse.
