Aug 12, 2014

Read any baby book and there will be probably be a chapter on introducing your new baby to your beloved family pet. Tips usually include something like bringing home a baby blanket so the dog can sniff it and get used to that new baby smell and learn to love the tiny creature to which it belongs.

He quickly gets a little over-excited to meet his new housemate, and in a fit of unbridled enthusiasm, starts spinning in gleeful circles on the couch unable to contain the shock of the new kitty. Watch and smile.
