When Guinness met Matilda

I'm trying to post atleast one post a day, so here goes. Today we introduced our english/american bulldog, Guinness, to Matilda. I had been a little anxious about this encounter but Sam made sure that everything was Cesar-approved. He picked Guinness up and exercised him to get him in a calm-submissive state and then we took a hat they gave us at the hospital for him to smell. We then took Matilda outside after getting her fed and comfortable. The result-instant love!

Step 1 : Happy baby

Step 2: Obedient dog

Step 3: Long arm of the Dad

Step 4: Meeting of fur child and real child

We love Guinness and he was our first "child" so we wanted him to still know how much we love him.

Aw Guinness is gonna be so sweet with her! And I think it's great when babies grow up with dogs . . . then they're never scared of canines! Next step: Introduce Matilda to Ignatius. What do you think? ;)

i mean, i have been waiting on this encounter for nine months. i just read this to angus and he seemed confused. i explained to him that he was an uncle to a little baby girl and he still looked confused. whatever, i am so thrilled to see these pictures!
