Question:

: We just had a baby a little over three weeks ago. Our Jack, "Buddy" usually sleeps in bed with us which we like. It seems that now the baby is here he sleeps downstairs all the time. We tried to bring him to bed but he resists. What's wrong, we miss him with us?

I really don't have a definitive answer for you, but it may be because everything is still new to him and he needs time to adjust. I am sure that you two are still adjusting, to the baby so why not your dog. Also with everything going on in your home with a new baby he may be feeling a little ignored and make sure that he is getting the love and attention that he got before the baby came. Do something special just for him! Who really knows what goes on in these guys mind, if I could figure that out, I could, make a millon on it.
Have a nice day
