So here's the debate... We have two dogs, and they have always been like my kids. Got them before I got the DH, and he jokes that if he hadn't liked them or vice versa, we would have never gotten married. He's right! They're a good judge of character. Now that I am pregnant, he's very concerned. They've always been indoor/outdoor doggies and they are bigger - 70 and 90 lbs. They like to play and tripped me early in pregnancy so I fell down about 3 stairs. I was ok, and baby is fine...but DH was not happy! The next day, he moved them to the garage and that was that! No more dogs in the house - they sleep in the garage and they play outside during the day. We've been able to make it work through the hot weather by putting a little air conditioner out there for them (it gets upward of 100 degrees here) and such...but now I worry about the cold. One of the doggies has arthritis and she just hates the cold. I also miss them inside. I understand his point of view - he's worried about baby, and he thinks it's an easier transition for them now to go to being out there than when baby comes and they "blame" baby and such...he also points out it's going to be hard enough for us to sleep and baby to sleep without two more interferences (one of the dogs is rather hyper and is up half the night anyways, and the other dog likes to bark). Does anyone else have this issue??
