I know I've posted before about how four-legged creatures can turn into your best friends. Suzy, a pointer, not only loves to hunt but she's become an irreplaceable member of our family. As my pregnancy came to a close, and I started having some complications and not feeling well, she started laying by our bedroom door or on the floor on my side of the bed. Granted, we did have some mishaps - I did step on her a few times in the middle of the night, and she did wake me with her snoring - but there's something extremely special about knowing that she's keeping a close eye on me especially when I'm feeling under the weather. I worried at first that she would harbor some jealous feelings, but it's actually been the complete opposite. She now has to know where Emma is at all times. If Emma wakes up for a bottle during the night, Suzy comes and stands by the bedroom door, follows me to the kitchen and into the nursery, all with this "Will you hurry up, already.." look. And from the look of these photos.. I think I may have lost my best four-legged friend. But I can't wait to see how this relationship develops!
