Introducing Our New Baby to the Pack

-Christian Ray-
 
A sweet new baby joins our family
"Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above..." -James 1:17
 
We are so thankful to the Lord for the newest addition to our family. Our son Christian was born only 2 weeks ago, and is healthy and happy. He weighed a whopping 10 pounds and is our biggest baby yet! All of his brothers and sisters are thrilled to have a new little brother to cherish. 
 
Our Labs have been so wonderful in adjusting to this new precious presence in our home. They are very delicate around the baby, and we are so fortunate to rest assured - knowing that our dogs are gentle giants. It's amazing how our English Labradors instinctively know to be calm around children and require very little time to acclimate to the vulnerability of an infant.
 
We do take time to introduce them to the scent of the new baby before their first actual introduction. Here is a link to an excellent article from "Fit Pregnancy" to educate new parents on the best way to promote a healthy start in the relationship between canine and infant. The picture below shows the first meeting between our 3 Labradors and our 3 day old son.
 
With many other breeds we would not feel so confident in our children's security, but we are so comfortable when it comes to the disposition of our Labs here at Kingridge. Of course, we use common sense and do not allow our dogs time alone unsupervised with the baby. But our dogs fit in perfectly with a growing family, and we feel truly blessed indeed!
