Thank you and I agree I am very cautious but more relaxed, he was most definitely picking up on my anxiety and nervousness

He is closely monitored when inside but absolutely loves the baby and is fantastic with him.

He likes to kiss his feet and rest his head on baby's lap.

Still scary to me. You will never be fast enough if he snaps.... I don't understand the "loves the baby". Kissing is close to his teeth.... I will sound pessimistic but there is a fragile newborn involved. At this stage I would not give him physical access to the baby but teach him that the baby is just "part of the furniture" and thus has to be ignored. Just my HO and realizing that I cannot see the entire picture/situation.

brebrehj Oh and in regards to my nervy dog with him, he is absolutely the best and has mellowed out tremendously since my son has come into the home

Some of the comments here... phew! But it is good to know there are those who are dedicated to helping instead of just flinging opinions and wild assumptions about. I was taken aback when someone went there re: the OP's personal life.
It's always a touchy subject when children are involved. It was hard to read that I am a bad mother because I soooo desperately wanted this to work. Maybe initially I didn't take the right steps. I didn't want to lose my dog but I was prepared just in case.

There was a lot more in the situation than people knew or understood (in regards to my older children)

-mom and dad split
-move to a new house and move to a new state being forced to leave their home, friends and father behind.
-new brother.
There were so many changes and this dog, Thor has been their best friend through it all. I wasn't willing to give up on Thor, my older children's relationship with him not to mention my own relationship with him.
Has it been exhausting caring for a new born, homeschooling a 4 and 6 year old along with trying like heck to get the situation under control?..absolutely and I will continue to work on the situation to continue to keep the peace every day so that my kids don't have to lose their best friend.
If alllllll of that makes me a bad mom I guess I can't win for trying lol.
