Puppy Love

2011 July 15

We’ve found that Ethan’s attention span is about 15 minutes (give or take a few minutes), so we’re constantly changing activities.

Lay on the activity mat, then sit in the Excersaucer for a while, go for a walk outside, then take a nap.

Practice rolling on the floor, eat applesauce in the bumbo, chew on some toys, and take another nap.

But there is one activity that always entertains Ethan for a long time…Dewey! For those of you who aren’t familiar with him, Dewey (AKA The Dew-Man) is our five year old Puggle (pug/beagle mix). He is the sweetest, most cuddly, and docile dog. He is the perfect size dog for laying around the house, going for a walk, playing fetch, running a few miles, or sitting on your lap.

And boy does Ethan love Dewey.

No matter what his mood, Ethan’s face lights up when he sees Dewey’s wrinkly mug. He laughs out loud when we play fetch with Dewey in the house and is getting pretty good at ‘petting’.

My dad snapped these pictures when we were sitting in our empty house last Tuesday.

When Dewey comes into view, Ethan can’t tear himself away. Grandma quickly figured out that calling Dewey into the room when Ethan got fussy usually quieted the situation very quickly. Dew-Man is the instant baby calmer!

We can’t wait to see how much fun Ethan and Dewey have together in the future…should be interesting!
