My husband and I just bought a house with a lovely backyard, and are looking for a dog to play in said yard. When my mom heard this, her answer was "I've heard lots of people say to have a baby before you get a dog, because the dog'll get jealous and might hurt the baby." Never in my 29 years of existence have I ever heard this. I've tried researching this claim, and I come up short handed. We already have a cat, and I see no reason why she or any pup we got would get less attention because a baby came along in a year or three.
What's your take on this, or your experience? Should we hold off on adopting a dog until after a baby is here, or just go for it?
