Hey Lisa (Woodard 2009), I didn't know you have twins. I have twin boys that are 21 years old. How old are yours? Boys? Girls? Both? Anyway, we will have a baby in the house in December. Lulu is usually pretty good with children, but skiddish. She's not known for being a "people person" with adults she doesn't know in the first place, but has always been fairly tolerant of children--go figure. That being said, the way I hope to handle our situation is to never leave her alone with the baby, and when he is old enough, teach him to love her and be gentle with her. She will be almost 5 years old when he's born--6 to 7 years old before he's really mobile. She has her napping spots that frankly he probably won't even be around. I'm hoping it's not too hard to keep them separated.

I had Luna since she was 3 months. I live with my sister and she has 2 kids and a new born . My other sister comes over every once in a while with my other niece. Luna is well behave and loves kids. I have taught my nieces and nephew to be gentle and kind to her and to leave her alone when she doesn't want to play anymore. Other than Luna loves to run around with them and she is very patient.

We introduce Luna to the new baby and she has been super gentle. She is curious so we have been watching her like hawk when we let her get close to the baby. Attachment 8396

I would say absolutely! even tiny Chihuahuas can live very nicely with children provided the children know how to act around the dog! If the dog does not have any known temperament issues I would say it's fine!
My kids were born into a home with a dog/dogs so it's never ever been an issue here.

Yep, twin girls (7 years old). Congrats on the new baby--How exciting!!! When mine were born, I wasn't afraid of Midgie hurting them. It was when they got a little older & could reach out to grab Midgie was when I had to watch. I don't think you'll have a problem keeping them separated as Midgie didn't want anything to do with them because she has always wanted me. I had Midgie's mom when my girls were born & I have a pic somewhere of Kasper laying across one of my girls. It's so cute. I'll have to try to find it.

Lisa, your girls are adorable!! We have alot in common. Midgie and Lulu favor, we both camp, and we have twins--although mine are boys that even I sometimes can't tell apart! LOL Thanks for the advise. Lulu is very attached to me as well. I think she will probably be the same with Jake--keep her distance if at all possible.
