Hi there, I wanted to post this on a dog forum rather than a baby forum because I'd prefer the critical response of dog-centric people rather than baby-centric ones! I have two dogs; a papillon and a spitz klein/pomeranian (big pom basically) aged 3 and 2. I also have a 1 year old daughter. I am an animal person, ive had dogs and cats my whole life and my work is related to dogs. Before having a child I could never understand people who would rehome their dogs after having a baby. Before C was born the dogs were my life, days were catered around them and I always made sure they had long walks, especially on weekends, and a dog walker in the week when we worked. I carried on with the long walks when C was born but it is so much harder now. Getting ready to out is such a stressful experience. My pap whines and runs in circles uncontrollably as soon as she sees my trying to put the (very difficult) baby carrier on, getting ready to go out takes about 15 minutes the whole time my pap is at max excitement and I end up snapping at her because I just can't think. My point is a feel so guilty because I feel like I don't give them as much attention as they used to have, my pom is okay, being younger, but my pap used to be the 'only child' and probably spoilt, but now I can't give her that same level of attention. I just feel constant guilt. I'm not going to rehome my dogs, I think I just want to share and see if other people have had this. I don't know anyone else with two dogs and a baby and I admit I regularly regret getting them, despite loving them. If any one has any of their own experiences please do share!
