I must say that I’m very proud of my boy. This past week, I had appointments and things that I needed to do, and I couldn’t take him with me. Patty couldn’t come and stay with him, so he had to rough it out alone while I was gone. No crate, since he still refuses to go in it, and I will not traumatize him by forcing him. I already tried, it’s a no go. Anyway…I was worried, not about what he’d do to the house, as I kept him in the livingroom only, and let’s face it, the couch is junk and replacable, Luke getting so upset about me leaving him and getting sick…is what I was worried about.
Patty teased me terribly about how I was acting lol. She said and I quote: “I don’t know which one of you is worse, you or him!” lol.
The first time I was gone about an hour. I don’t know whether he howled much since I wasn’t here, but when I got back, he was quiet until he heard me and then he was just SOOO happy to see me it was unreal lol. It took him a good ten minutes to calm down and I was so proud of him.
Later that night I had to go shopping for groceries, and it was a major storm out. I had to leave him again…this time I was gone atleast 2 hours and as with the first time, he did great. I brought him back a nice treat and gave him tons of loving.
