This is about Macy my giant schnauzer, she is 10 now and i have had from 8 week old. She is a gentle giant and has been a joy to know, definitely my dog, or that is until Jake arrives for a visit. Almost 6 years ago Macy had a phantom pregnancy and at the same time my daughter Michelle was expecting her first baby.
When my grandson Jake arrived Macy thought he was wonderful and was always near by, she even sleep outside his bedroom. After a time Michelle moved to her own home and i noticed that Macy was not herself at all. A few days later Michell called by with Jake and we had the return of the old Macy for the day.
After they left she took to her bed for long periods and was off her food so i asked Michelle to call with Jake and hey presto she was back to normal. This went on for several weeks but over time Macy got used to Jake just coming and going and returned to the the dog i know and love. But even now over three years on if Jake is in the house he has a big black shadow with him at all times and it's as well that he loves her too.
