Rudy (Liz and Andy’s dog) has always liked me, mostly because when we would dogsit for them, I would take him running in the park. I would encourage him to sprint after squirrels to give me a better workout. Also, Rudy is a ladies’ man in general.
This trip, I’m convinced that Rudy is in love with me, if only because I’m pregnant. The first night, Rudy was sniffing my stomach and breasts, like he knew something was different but he just couldn’t figure out what it was. Since then, he continues to sniff my stomach and tries to cuddle with me.
If I had known that I would get such love and attention, I would have suggested to Jon getting a dog before I got pregnant!
