Derek: Good Doggie

Dillon, the elf-dog

Dillon is such an amazing dog. He puts up with all the crap we do to him. Take Christmas, he has to wear his silly elf-hat. I don't know many dogs that would handle it. I don't know of many dogs that could handle the handful that a new baby is, the way Dillon has.

He's been amazing with Caiden. From day 1 you knew he cared about Caiden, but not to the point that he's always on top of him. Dillon also knows to respect Caiden's space and to be careful around him.

If Caiden cries Dillon checks on him, then checks on the area around him, to make sure there's nothing making Caiden cry, then comes and gets us, even if we're standing a few feet away. When we get up at night, Dillon goes with us either downstairs or to Caiden's room. At first Dillon didn't like the constant waking, but he's gotten used to it, and sticks with us.

Dill loves his 'little brother' and gives him a kiss on the top of his head, pretty much once a day to show it. We are truly blessed to have such an amazing companion for our family. Good Dog.
