"Brutus knew I was pregnant before I did — he definitely sensed it before I knew," Michalek said. "On the nights my husband was working Brutus refused to be in his crate."
Even when Michalek adjusted the crate to give Brutus more room, he refused — he just wanted to be near her. "Looking back I thought he was just being a brat but really he was trying to protect me," she said.
And because Brutus is such a mama's boy, she was careful to include him in the changes occurring in the family as they got ready for little Kayden to arrive.
