Sorry today's is posted so late. I had a party for Riley and my birthday's today at the park. Took up most of the day to prepare and celebrate.
Do you have any pets? How Many? What Kind? Are you nervous to introduce a new baby to it/them?

I have 3 pets. 2 dogs (1 maltese- Coconut, 1 border collie/lab- Sadie) and 1 cat (short hair domestic- Tootsie). I am nervous about Sadie the most. She doesn't handle little babies well... She bit me when I pushed her for growling at the little girl i baby sit sometimes. Coconut will probably be fine.. and Tootsie, well... she is knew so Idk. There will be strick rules with all the animals when baby is here though/ getting ready to be born.
We've got one furbaby, Cassie. She's a Cocker Spaniel/Chihuahua mix but is the loveliest creature ever. She loves everyone and is wonderful with all the toddlers who want to pet her. I'm a little worried that she could become jealous. She is very possessive of me and will snap at other dogs if I am sitting with her and want to pet them. But not all the time, it depends on her mood. I'm hoping that if I make sure to not ignore her and give her the attention she's been getting then she will be ok. I think then she will be as protective of the baby as she is of me.
I have 4 dogs (2 jack russels, mini aussie shep, and a pitbull) and 2 cats. Two of the dogs I had when DS was born. But we shouldn't have any problems. All of the animals have been around babies since then. My pitbull is a bit of a lap dog and may have issues as I grow and as the baby is born that he can't snuggle on the couch on me. But he snuggles with my husband too.
We have a Bengal (cat) named Luna. She'll be 6 when the baby arrives. She doesn't like change and copes by hiding. She's been around kids before and is fine, so I'm not worried about her. Zelda, our 7 month old Boston Terrier loves kids and people too much. We're going to be working with her a lot over the next few months to teach to calm down and leave things alone. We also have a part-time guinea pig, Speedy Fifi Gonzalez (the kids at my school named her, she goes there during the week). I have no concerns with her around the baby but I don't know how I'm going to get through the next little bit because the smell of her cage and her hay make me feel sick.
We have 1 dog and 2 cats. Our dog is a beautiful pure bred Siberian Husky. She is great other than the hair she sheds everywhere! Our cats are brother and sister from the same litter. Our boy cat was the only boy in the litter of 7! So we took him and one of his sisters. We don't really know thier breed, but their mom was a calico. Their dad was some type of stray, because their mom lived outside on a family farm of some friends we knew. I have no issues introducing the new baby to the pets, we've done it before with all the other kids.
Love the pet pics!!
We have a miniature schnauzer named Bayleigh. She doesn't love kids but she does OK. She has gotten a lot better with DS but she is still huffy and dramatic about him sometimes.

(3 sweet babies in heaven)
This is our Katrina Hurricane rescue mix Clover. She's 8yr old She is the sweetest dog ever and i was only worried when DD came around that she's slobber all over her. She has been wonderful with DD and have no doubt she'll be just as fabulous with the new baby. DD loves to give her hugs and kisses and points out her nose, ears, tail, paws, etc. So cute together..... but as with all dogs, we still watch them together and for the most part Clover just stays out of the way, she's not into the getting a ball thrown at my face game...lol.
