If you’ve been a reader of Fit & Awesome for a while or follow me on social media, you probably know all about our crazy, adorable, fun loving golden retriever named Kona. She is our first baby (aka our “fur baby”) and is so good with Baby Awesome. She lays by my feet while I nurse her, sits by her crib, and is very protective of her. But she has her moments. Yesterday I came out of the bathroom to find Kona with Baby Awesome’s pacifier in her mouth! She’s been known to steal Baby Awesome’s pacifiers, socks, and bibs but this was just too funny. I was trying so hard not to laugh or reprimand her so I could capture this hilarious moment:
I couldn’t believe she was holding the pacifier so perfectly in her mouth just like Baby Awesome does! It was like she wanted to be a baby, too.
After I got the photo I took the pacifier from her and inspected it to make sure she didn’t puncture it. Nope, she just slobbered all over it. I immediately sterilized it by boiling it in hot water.
Later on in the day I was sending the picture to friends and everyone thought it was hysterical. I’m a member of a first time mom group on Facebook that has been invaluable to me in my journey as a new mom. I posted the photo to give the mommies a laugh and was amazed at the response. To date the post has received almost 1,500 likes! In my post I encouraged other moms to post pictures of their fur babies getting into their baby’s toys. There were so many pictures of people’s dogs and cats in swings, sitting on changing tables, and curled up on boppy pillows. There were also several other pictures of dogs with pacifiers in their mouths. Who knew this was a thing? So now, without further ado, I present to you Pets and Pacis:
I would like to give a special shout out to the mommies in the First Time Mom group on Facebook and the mommies who let me share these photos with my readers. I hope this post makes you smile!
What about you? Anyone else have fur babies who have trouble distinguishing between your baby’s toys and their own toys? Post in the comments and tell us about it!
