No, Chow Chow, No

How many of your mummies actually trust you when you are around your younger siblings? Sad to say, my Mummy doesn't trust me at all!

Ever so often, I try to be friendly and show my care and concern to my baby sister by looking at her very closely and sniffing her head or licking her tiny toes and fingers. She seemed to have finally noticed my existence recently cos her eyes will light up whenever she sees me and she will get excited and keep looking at me no matter where I go. She makes me feel like a fish in an aquarium sometimes, but I still love her.

However, my evil Mummy doesn't want us to get too close. Perhaps she is just jealous. Whenever my baby sister is on her jumperoo and I go over to say hi, Mummy will push my head away and say "No, Chow Chow, no". Fine, I'll go rest under my favourite table and watch her behave like a clown in order to keep my baby sister entertained.

Sometimes when Mummy and Daddy and the baby are cuddling and playing on the couch, I go over to join in the fun by licking the baby on her legs. Again, my Mummy will carry the baby away and say "No, Chow Chow, noooooo". Only when I go away to the balcony with my head lowered and looking so disappointed will she say sorry and "I love you" to me. But who cares for sorry and "I love you" when all I want is to join in the fun as part of the family.

If the humans can kiss the baby, why can't I?

The other day, Mummy screamed when she found me licking my baby sister's fingers. The baby was laughing away as she happily puts her hand near my mouth. So why must Mummy spoil the fun for us?

The worst was this: Mummy was in the kitchen one day when she suddenly heard the baby cried out loud. Immediately she assumed it was my fault cos she rushed out of the kitchen screaming "No, Chow Chow, no!!!" Just because I was in the same room as the baby. When she came out, she realised I was sitting at the other end of the room, while my baby sister was on the other side, screanming cos she was bored/hungry/sleepy. Of course, Mummy felt really bad for thinking it was me who caused the baby to cry. She probably thought I was chewing on the baby's succulent thigh for breakfast. Hello! I'm off the raw diet, remember?!

I gave Mummy a sad face and look away. Hah! This will send her on a really long guilt trip!

I really wish my baby sister can grow up very quickly so that she is no longer so "fragile" and we can both play together. And for dog's sake, baby sister, please stop screaming out loud whenever I'm near you. I know you are my biggest fan but I don't deserve another accusation!

Oh Chow Chow - I'm sure you are wonderful with your baby sister! Of course it is natural for your human to be worried because she is still so little...and it is very good of her to be responsible and supervise you 2 together all the time.

Maybe when she is there to watch you, it might be good to let you cuddle together sometimes? This way you will get a chance to learn HOW to behave around your baby sister - which you will never learn if you are kept away from her all the time.

Also, remember to tell your human that it is very important to also praise us doggies when they see us doing the right thing - like when she finds you lying calmly next to your baby sister or being gentle with her, she should praise you and pat you - so that you can learn what you SHOULD do as well as being told off for what you should NOT do. If us doggies don't get praised for doing the "right" things as well as correcte for doing the "wrong" things, we will never learn but humans often forget and only notice & give us attention when we do wrong things. They need to also give us attention when we do RIGHT things.

Plus also, if you just get told off around your baby sister all the time, you will associate her with negative things! So it would be good if you also get praise & cuddles around her (providing you are behaving nicely) so that you associate her with good things too.

Hi Chow Chow! Happy belated barkday! Cheer up and be patient, she'll grow up soon enough to have some real playtime with you.

Oh growl! I get lots of "No! Dino, No!" too, so I totally sympathize with you. Things will improve soon. My Mom lets me nearer to my sis now and I get to kiss her some times too. Mom just wipe my drool from her face every time I kiss her. She still watches over us together like a hawk. Hang on there, Buddy!
Love, Dino
