Congrats on the new little "man" in your life, Christi... they're hard work, but if I can find the bliss in being a parent, (and I wasn't all that excited about it at first) You'll have no problem!
And good info in here, too. A lot of people don't realize how much should really go into bringing a pet into the house... most think "It's a dog, he'll be fine as long as I feed him". But it really ought to be more involved than that. Good pointers on keeping your pup safe and "pup-proofing" your home. Invaluable information.
