Even a ruff start can have a happy ending!

When three spoiled dogs get word that their humans are expecting a baby, the pups worry and worry and worry some more. After all, they’ve never lived with a tiny baby before.

What about trips to the park? Naps on the couch? And what if he likes the cats—the cats!—more than he likes them?

Children expecting a little brother or sister of their own will be pleased to learn that these newest additions to the family are not so rotten after all.

A beautifully told story of three dogs’ worries when they get word of a new baby on the way, Maybe the Baby proves that big sisters and brothers—whether they have two legs or four—are just as special.


Maybe The Baby tells the story of three spoiled dogs and their newfound worries when they discover that a baby is on the way. 

The three dogs envision their lives and daily activities being interrupted and even eliminated as a result of the baby’s homecoming. 

Yet, as the time passes the dogs realize that their reality did not compare to their wild imaginations full of worries and woes.
