Boy meets girl. Boy and girl get married. They have their first-born child…and these days that is often a cat or a dog. Pet is the apple of their eyes. Girl gets pregnant and the first born, possibly highly indulged pet is expected to abdicate its place on the bed and owners’ heart to a squirmy, smelly, crying creature. The transition can be rocky.
The American Humane association wants to maintain peace and harmony and insure that the pet isn’t relinquished to a shelter because these two members of the family just aren’t getting along.My guest is Ms. Jane Greco Deming. She is the director of education for the human-animal interaction program of the American Humane association. She will give us some pointers on how to make the pet meeting baby experience a howling success.
