Dogs & Babies

Dogs, like cats, seem to understand they have to be gentle with babies. How do they know that? And how do the babies know not to be afraid of dogs? I was afraid of dogs when I was a little boy. But probably I wouldn’t have been, if we’d had a dog in the house when I was a baby.

But if my mother had ever seen the dog cuddling the baby and licking the baby all over–well, that would’ve been the end of that. Unless she fainted first.
