Princess A is back to licking me instead of kissing me and she regularly hides in Freckles’ cage. She can also hug Freckles now which is so adorable.
Luckily, a new study came out that exposing young children to dogs is beneficial for their health. DUH! Apparently, dogs are so disgusting that they track in tons of germs that help babies create antibodies or something. I agree with that but feel like dogs help children’s emotional health as well. They teach a child how to take care of something, be gentle, and they offer unconditional love. Also, many tears can be stopped by a single dog kiss!
New York moms are obsessive about the new it science study so now when Amelia gets asked out on a play date moms ask for me to bring along Freckles. I have to say Princess A, Freckles, myself, and her friends are loving this. I don’t feel guilty when we have to leave Freckles at home and don’t have to rush home to walk him. Princess A seems more confident at play dates when Freckles is around. The children think Freckles is hysterical. And well Freckles… he is learning to deal with life in the limelight. Just Kidding! He is loving the extra attention and when he realizes we are on a play date he immediately rolls onto his back so the kids can rub his belly.
I am really glad this study came out but seriously it’s kind of a no brainer. Doing a study to see if dogs are good for kids is like doing a study to see if air conditioning feels nice in 100 degree weather.
