The Baby and Mr. Wilson

 He approaches her delicately, sniffs the air around her, then boldly sticks his nose close to her skin. The baby smiles. The dog seems confused, a little unsure of himself, but quickly regains composure. It's his first encounter with a newborn, and he passes with flying colors.

The baby gets all the attention, and Mr. Wilson somehow knows that everything is as it ought to be. He's at peace with his place, knows that his presence in our lives is important, and irreplaceable. But somehow he also knows that that little bundle of joy in his human sister's arms is a little above him in the family pecking order, and that he has to treat her with respect.

Dogs see and feel things differently than us humans, I've learned. He doesn't take his position in our family personally, and doesn't dwell on the why. He is content to take his place, and watch us grow, and know that his place is secure, and permanent, and that he is every bit as important to us as everybody else is.

Welcome to the family Kinsley Victoria, we're looking forward to sharing our lives with you.
