Our Fur Child

As I was heading upstairs to brush my teeth this morning, I found our fur child, Serafina, sunning herself on the stair landing. Here are some pics!

For those of you who haven't met Sera, all I can say is that I hope you get to some time. She's the sweetest, most wonderful dog. She's a very important part of our family and we love her very much. She's a 3.5 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback and her favorite pastimes include sunning herself and laying by the fire. While ridgebacks were bred in Africa to hunt lions, they are also known to be "couch potatoes" - a trait Sera certainly lives up to. She even likes to sleep in on the weekends with us (although I'm not sure Little Hittle will let us continue that tradition)!

Before we had a dog, we would have sworn that we would never let a dog sleep in our bed. Then, we got Sera and we couldn't resist "the look". So, we now keep her off all furniture except for our bed at night. We've got a huge Eastern King-sized bed and she has her own spot (yes, complete with a pillow and blanket) in the middle of the foot of the bed. The other morning, Brian and I were talking about Sera and the baby and how we envision the first fews weeks at home. It is our plan to put Little Hittle in a SnuggleNest in between us at the head of the bed for the first few weeks during the night. Then, Little Hittle will permanently move into the nursery. Thinking about what Sera would think of having Little Hittle join us for awhile, Brian leaned over to her and whispered, "Don't worry, Sera. Little Hittle will eventually have to sleep in the nursery, but you'll get to stay here with us in our bed!"
