Pets Get Jealous Too

The other day I was visiting a friend.  Her dog was jumping all around her, whimpering and crying.  The reason?  She was cuddling a baby and her dog was jealous.  I can certainly relate as I remember so well a similar situation when we brought our first baby home from the hospital.  In an effort to get closer to me and receive the kind of attention I was giving our newborn, our golden put her paw up and scratched our little one’s forehead.  As upset as I was, I had to try to understand that our sweet puppy dog didn’t mean to hurt our baby, she just felt replaced.
