I am a dog person. I can't think of a time in my life where dogs didn't play a huge role. I always had a dog growing up, and I was grateful for their companionship and their antics. As an adult, I got a dog the minute I moved out of the house, and I've had one ever since. At first, I was concerned for my pups when I brought home their first human sibling, but they were awesome about it. They loved him as much as they did me. And luckily, the old wives' tales about dogs and babies are fascinating enough to make you want to add to your brood as well. (OK, some are kind of creepy, but just don't focus on those.)
Old wives' tales are mostly myths, but they are a ton of fun. I mean, as a mom, I'm not a huge fan of the old "step on a crack, break your mother's back" rhyme, but broken mirrors, ladders in my path, and north winds are all things I actively try to avoid. That being said, I have two black cats, so I guess I'm not totally superstitious. But when it comes to the old wives' tales about dogs and babies, some of them are hilarious, and some of them are downright strange and maybe a little scary.
