It’s time again for another episode of Shagbottom Theater!
Sadie Sue Shagbottom finds out that her mom is expecting.
Pet parents who end up expecting human babies often wonder if their pets know there is a baby on the way. You can read evidence to support both sides, but it’s all conjecture. We assume because dogs have wicked sniffers they can smell the change, but wouldn’t they need to know what the scent change means? Unless they’ve been down that road before, it’s completely legitimate to believe they’re in for a big surprise in 4o weeks.
I’ve tried to show her ultrasound pictures, talk to her, show her my growing belly, and include her in nursery building. I still don’t feel 100% that she gets what is happening.
Maybe dogs have the ultimate poker faces?
