When you bring home your human baby, chances are your fur child will, at some points, get a little less attention than they did before. But babies take more than Mom and Dad's attention away from the family pup; there are plenty of fashion trends babies have stolen from dogs, too. (Which probably leaves Buddy thinking, "What the heck, kid?! First you take the all of the attention, now this?")
You knew that getting your dog ready for a new baby to come home would require some preparation. The American Kennel Club recommends playing recorded baby sounds and using your newborn's lotions and soaps to get your pup used to the smell. Once at home, be sure to introduce them slowly and give your pup plenty of attention when the baby is around. But what the AKC doesn't say to prepare for is the fact that baby will be stealing Fido's *lewks* in a matter of months.
Now, to be fair, babies and dogs have always been around each other. It's not like one came first and gets to claim all the credit for these trends. But some of them were definitely started by dogs (see: floor pillows), while others just make way more sense on dogs than they do on babies. While they both look pretty darn cute, here are the pieces babies have been stealing right off the canine runway.
