Baby? What Baby? I Thought It Was A Puppy!

Are we bad parents because the most frequently heard phrase in our house right now is "Turtle, don't lick the baby!"?

Every time we leave the house with Kendra, or Turtle leaves and comes back, she runs to the baby and licks her on the head. It's pretty cute, actually. Turtle has taken on a very maternal role, and has claimed alpha dog status in the pack since Kendra has come along. She will actively prevent the other dogs (especially Otis) from getting food. We think she wants to save some for the "puppy."

Aww--she's just showing some love. I knew turtle would be a good mama. How does Kendra react to that head licking?
