Bauer is now 6.5 months old and weighing right at 60 lbs. He's not finished growing, and he is crazy. Really. In fact, as I type this, his paws are in my lap, and he's licking my face. Surely, he doesn't want my attention. (Be warned - this will be a short post.)
I read a little bit about this subject in my books and online, but I came up with conflicting arguments. I decided I needed an expert opinion - YOURS!
Over the past few weeks, I've noticed Bauer getting even more protective of me. (Sometimes, he doesn't even like it if James gets too close to me!) He seems to know when I'm not feeling well. On those days, he won't leave my side. Plus, here's the kicker: I've heard my entire life that dogs have incredible hearing abilities. Well, for about the past 2 weeks, whenever I am sitting down on the couch, he rests his head on my stomach. He's always snuggled up beside me, but never this close. Is it possible that Bauer can hear the heartbeat?
Did your pets act differently when you were pregnant? How?
