A visit from cousin Q

Yesterday, Eddie visited us with his 3 year old daughter – Querida. The last time that Boogie met his cousin Q, she was still a teeny tiny baby and she wouldn’t have remembered him. Q is so big now – such a pretty girl!

We introduced the kids out on the street, with Q in her bicycle seat, and Boogie in my arms, on leash.

Q was super gentle with Boogie, and Boogie was super gentle with her. Q giggled when Boogie drank water because dogs are so cute when they drink water šŸ™‚ She followed him around the room as he followed me – I was the one with the bacon cheese dog treats…

Q picked up Boogie’s toys and her dad and I let her know which ones were “throw toys”(yes, you may pick it up and throw it for him) and which ones were “tug toys” (don’t touch those ones). Q got down on the rug and watched Boogie chew his corn cob. Several times she offered him his rubber dinosaur but he was way more interested in me because I had the bacon cheese cookies. And in Eddie because he was eating ice cream.

Sharing here some photos of the cute twosome…

One time Boogie gave Q a kiss on the face. This is quite a big deal because Boogie doesn’t just kiss ANYBODY, least of all someone he is meeting for the first time.Ā  Boogie was relaxed and polite – no jumping, no running, his ears and face were soft the entire time – and Q was delightfully gentle with him, petting him on the back and throwing/dropping his ball for him.

And so I feel it is OK to share these photos, keeping in mind this blog post by the Dogs & Babies expert, Madeline Gabriel: “Should You Share That Cute Dog and Baby Photo?”

    that is adorable šŸ™‚ my dogs are really gentle with kids also, though Bender has taken a long time to learn… he tends to get excited and run away!

    Sounds like you managed a wonderful child/dog greeting. Glad to hear Boogie was so comfortable with Q. And I bet she learned a lot about gentle behavior around dogs.

    Good job!
