For anyone who has been curious about how our dog, Sammy, has been adjusting, here's an update. Sammy is great with Kate. He's not really excited about hanging out with her yet, probably because she doesn't do anything that interests him. He is a little mopey about not getting attention, but he's being very sweet about it.
A few nights ago when we were up for a feeding I noticed that Sammy was lying on the floor next to his pillow, not on it. I thought that was weird until I saw why. Sammy's little toy (a crazy-eyed donkey dog toy we named Pedro) was lying on the pillow. Sammy generously had given his bed to his Pedro and was lying next to him. I think he was trying to tell us that he knows how to care for a baby.
