Since Bubbles and Texas are my constant companions, they for the most part, have earned their "freedom" in the house. Though if they haven't "done both" outside, they will not be left loose while I am gone, and even then, only if I'm going to be gone for 3-4 hours.
With the others, I mostly crate them, unless I'll only be gone for a short amount of time, and then I'll baby-gate them into the kitchen.
Well Victoria probably earns the award for being the dog I've had the longest this year, so she'd gone from the crate, to one room, too two rooms; no accidents and no chewing...
Today I was able to give them an extensive amount of exercise before I left for Wilderwood Graduation Week so I decided to go for the ultimatum....leaving them all loose in the house. No restrictions.
I came home, the house was still standing...(amazing cause I forgot and left the oven on!!!) nothing chewed, destroyed, or anything!!!!
I am very proud of my babies.
And of course just as we reach this point....I get the news Victoria leaves me next week. :((((((((
"Puppies COME, COME, COME!!!"
"GOOD JOB GUYS!!!"
