About 2 years after Joe and I were married, I got pregnant. I think Bruno and Beau knew before I did. They went from climbing all over me, all the time, to carefully avoiding my belly at all costs! They helped with the new baby laundry.
Bruno "helping" with baby laundry
They helped with the painting. They helped with the crib. They took naps, LOTs of naps, with me!
I had a really rough pregnancy filled with LOTS and LOTS of sickness. The only thing I could keep down were tomatoes and TUMs!!! We were at Costco one day and I decided the industrial size bottle of TUMs was necessary!
A few weeks later, we returned home from errands.... My industrial sized bottle of Tums was opened and EMPTY on the floor!! Bruno is a very picky eater, so I knew it was Beau...
Yet another eating related phone call to the vet... She asked me if they were Tums with calcium, uh, yes they were. "Laurie bring him in". Shit, really, again?????
Beau was acting fine, and of course, still begging. They drew his blood and sent it out. Calcium can apparently, really screw a dog up! Well, most dogs. Not Beau. He was FINE. No trace of anything or any problems. Geez, this dog can eat anything!!
A couple of months later we were blessed with a beautiful little girl. When we brought her home, Beau and Bruno welcomed her immediately. Beau would lay outside of her room and Bruno next to her crib. They remain very protective of her to this day, 5 years later!
