Always on guard

20120507bethany at home-DSC_1805Kronk (our dog) is such an interesting bird. When Eden came home for the first time 4 1/2 years ago he was excited and he thought that she was a new friend to play with.  He was also very kind and was never rough with her. 

As we we have been getting ready for Bethany to come into the picture this time,he has been great.  He would snuggle Katie in the bed while she was on bed rest and he was never too far from her side. 

So a couple of days when Bethany came home we were excited about his reaction.  Once again he took up his post as protector and shepherd of this little bundle.  This picture was taken the first night (about 2am) where he sat and laid all night beside her.
