I have 2 dogs a 7 year old cockapoo and a 4 year old teddybear. They've both been attached to my hip since day 1. Dont like when I go places without them even if my husband is still at home. Dont like it when I walk ahead of them when my husband has them on leashes. They want to be with me. This past year we had a first kid. Baby girl is 8 months old now and we have been trading taking nighttime duty every other night so we can both still get sleep. The dogs still get special treats and time with me. We even still do a baby less adventure once a week. But when we go to bed sometimes I'm on the couch sometimes I'm in bed. Both with or without baby. But my dogs no longer sleep with me. They will hang out for an hour then leave and sleep with my husband. I would understand if they just didnt want to deal with the baby waking up but they will still sleep with my husband when hes got the baby for the night and shes more likely to wake up when shes with him. I dont get it. They're still obsessed with being with me but they wont sleep with me overnight. Now my younger dog usually follows the older ones lead so I know why she eventually leaves but i can figure out why my oldest leaves when weve got a crazy connection from when it was just the two of us. What could be going on?
