Default Watching a friend's baby today

Xena thinks she's very interesting. Fortunately, this kid comes from a pet household (even though Xena is much larger than any of the pets they have) so she's very unphased by the attention.

Xena took a few tastes, which the baby laughed at. She then offered her toys to the dog, which Xena didn't taste, but had several sniffs.

Xena got very jealous of the attention my wife was giving the baby and want over to the door and rang the bell very insistently, then came over and sat right next to my wife with a "look at me mommy!" face

On top of that, it's 74 degrees outside in November in PA.

Life is good.

Right now they are playing a canine version of "peek-a-boo". Xena is eating, but keeps coming around the corner and staring at the baby. The baby keeps scooching closer to Xena to see what she's doing.

They are very interested in each other, which is kind of cool.

That is funny about the bell! You know, she might not have been asking for attention.........she *might* have wanted you to put the baby outside!

I hope you guys enjoy! The baby and the weather..........it's only 45 here

Xena is our official warning system. She walked over and smelled the diaper. Sure enough, it was dirty

Sounds like you're having a fun and interesting time. Animal behavior is always interesting, no matter what kind. Babies are a lot of fun and soooo cute.

74 degrees!!!! IN PA? I'm so jealous. It is about 30 degrees here and it snowed about 3-4 inches the other day, but rained yesterday and a lot of it is gone. Yeah! But 74! I'm envious.

Well, they are on the way to pick her up. My fun is coming to an end, but that's the best part about watching other people's babies - they go home at the end of the day
