Duke was good with company yesterday

Post by runlip » Mon Apr 18, 2011 2:22 pm

Sunday my sister in law and her husband came for lunch. I planned on keeping Duke apart from them. When they came he was outside. I planned on leaving him out there so I could relax but my husband didn't want to because he was scratching and barking at the door. He let Duke in while they were sitting at the kitchen table and he was fine with them. He has met them once before and they loaded him up with treats so maybe he remembered them. He was even ok as they moved about the house. I was so happy. Tomorrow my daughter wants to have a couple of girls over. I think I may go back to keeping him away from them in the crate. I don't want to tempt fate.

Well done Runlip, you are already getting an improvement, it is better not to rush things and crate him when your daughter's friends come over. Just make sure they ignore him completely.

I think you deserve some of these as well Image

Well done, Runlip! Even though you're seeing improvement with your dog, you're doing the best thing by not rushing into things and keeping your dog crated when your daughter's friends come over.

For your effort, these flowers are for you, as you deserve them! Image

(By the way Mattie, I think your flower garden needs replanting, since I've been raiding or swiping some of your flowers out of your flower garden! :lol: )

Nothing to stop you from taking them and planting them yourself in your garden. :P

No, it's better to swipe yours, Mattie! Besides, you have the best fertilizer! :lol:

Mattie, I think she just accused you of being "full of it" :shock: :twisted:

well done rulip.

for realizing that doing good with your sister in-law and hubby may not translate to daughter's friends I match the those flowers Image and raise you a dancing cat
