We were nervous about Marty interacting with the babies...he can be territorial over Craig/us. You would think he was protective of Craig and not me but it got to a point where Marty would pick me over Craig - probably because he could sense I wasn't *really* a dog person and tried very hard to win me over. Back in the day, I would work a 12 hour night shift, drive to Craig's place, and Marty and I would sleep - after the fact that Marty JUST slept 8 hours with Craig! Anyway, I digress, Marty was actually very gentle with Kelsey and Drew. He allowed the kids to crawl on him, over him, around him, play with his food.
