Since having Knox, we have started to have some issues with our little dog, Abby. She has become a terror. She already has OCD, a flea allergy, and is “slightly” neurotic, but despite her issues has been a really great dog over the past few years. Enter: baby. She hates Knox. She is so jealous of him, which I can’t blame her considering she used to be the center of my universe and has since been displaced by the baby. We were trying to just give her extra attention, but it didn’t seem to work, and over the past two weeks, she’s tried to bite him twice. I’d understand it if it he were pulling her hair or something, but just for crawling towards her? I wish I could explain things to her. She doesn’t understand what happened to her world, and I hate the thought of gettng rid of her, but I can’t have her biting him. I don’t know who I could get to take her, especially since the thought of giving her to a stranger is more than I can take. We’ll have to figure something out soon before something happens.
I had written an entirely different post earlier today thinking about getting rid of our two cats, too, but I cry just thinking about it. I love those cats, and it’s not their fault we had a baby. They haven’t done a thing wrong, so I’m just going to suck it up and make time to give them more attention. I never thought it would be so hard to juggle pets and a baby, but man alive, it sucks. I know it will get easier once Knox is bigger, then they’ll be buddies and we’ll be glad for it.
