Most of you know & have heard my FIL stories. He is NOT a dog person. The girls are in the bedroom or family room when he is here. The last time he came over he said to Molly "Get out of here." I told you about that visit.
Well I never say anything, he is 90 years old & will never change...or so I thought. He was over to visit Sunday & the girls were in the bedroom & Kate was in her crate. Well SU goes to let them out for a potty break. They come back in & I said "Put them in the bedroom & I will put Kate in her crate. Well...FIL says "Oh leave them out."
I figured...here we go. Well I told Molly & Abby to lay down, which they did but Kate jumped on the couch. I told her to get down but FIL says...she is alright. I told her "easy" and she just sits there next to him watching the football game.
First I see this.
Then I see this.
Maybe he is getting a bit senile & forgot he does not like dogs. Go figure. But I was very proud of Kate. For almost 6 months old she was very gentle around him.
Then I actually saw him pet her. I guess you could call it a Christmas miracle.

Ah, that is so sweet!
Oh my gosh, Georgie, that is adorable! Kate knew just what she was doing, charming that old grouch.

OMG, that is the sweetest story!!! Is he the kind of guy who tries to be tough on the outside but is a softie when noone is looking? My dad is the same way your FIL is and once in awhile I'll catch him petting the dogs or sneaking food to them. He just has to be a bully/ASS in front of people.
bbbbmom - Nope. He has always been like that. My MIL loved the dogs but not him. I don't know how to explain Sunday.
Georgie, that is very touching!
Kate is such a sweetie, what a gentle soul she has!
I'm glad you captured it on film, at least you have proof, in case he comes round and realizes what he allowed to happen
