I have a two year old niece Lizzie who often comes over with her brothers 5, 9, and 7. Lizzie loves dogs, especially Piper. She follows Piper around petting her and she is always giving Piper kisses. Piper is so great with her and so patient. We do carefully watch them together making sure Lizzie is being sweet. Piper is stealing food from Lizzie and sitting by her when she is at the table waiting for her to drop food. Usually Piper is sitting in the living room entrance that's connected to the kitchen so she can see everyone, but when the kidos are over I have a really hard time keeping her at "her place" And it doesn't help that Lizzie gives her food.
