Incident with Baloo...advice please???
Okay so yesterday DH, Noah and I were playing on the bed with Baloo. I had Baloo in my arms rubbing his belly and Noah (who is 10) got excited because we were being silly and started jumping on his knees on the bed. All of a sudden Baloo jumped out of my arms and sort of attacked Noah and tried to bite his hand. I grabbed him so fast then he tried snapping at him again! I was so shocked, Baloo has never acted like this before. I put him on his own bed and made him stay immediately after and wouldn't let him move until I said so.
Noah started to cry, mostly because he thought Baloo doesn't like him anymore (no broken skin, but a scratch). I feel so bad. About 10 mins later I took Baloo down stairs and sat with Noah and he came over and lick Noahs pants and feet.
I think he thought Noah was going to do something to me, or he just scared him when he started to jump.
I am not sure what I should have done different? Does anyone have any advice on how I should follow-up with both Baloo and Noah? Noah is such a tender heart, he was so heartbroken after this. I just don't want him to start being scared of Baloo.
I would appreciate any advice, espcecially if something like this happened to you...how did you deal with the kids, dog etc. after this?
