Welllll...... Gibson sleeps in bed w/us now *whoops*. He has just been so good this past week, and me and my husband decided to let him in bed w/us Friday night. He was so cute, he just plopped down at the foot of the bed and fell asleep :) He still did not wake me up in the morning, just waited for me to get up like he does in his crate. The next night he got up and started kissing us on the faces and tried sleeping on our pillows, so we put him back in his crate..but he slept w/us again last night and was a good boy and just snuggled our legs. I just love this little guy more and more every day.
He's been doing great w/obedience. He will sit every time we come to an intersection now w/o me telling him too (yay!). Stay has been tough..he can only do it when he's laying down for some reason. If he's sitting, he'll immediately stand up when I walk away from him. Last night in class we tried stay w/a 15 foot lead and he thought the lead was just a huge toy. He kept pouncing at it as it moved *rolls eyes*. So we'll have to work on that this week. Other than that we learned 'down' this week, which Gibson is already a superstar at, so I was excited. It was nice when all I had to say was down and point to the ground and he'd be down, while others had to pull their dogs legs out from under them :) He also got to actually play w/some of the other dogs for a long time before class and they had a blast. Him and a few rat terriers were playing so nicely, no barking or growling.. I was proud :)
This weekend we were supposed to go to Starved Rock to meet up w/Jen
and her corgi, but busy schedules and miscommunication kind of screwed that up :( (Hopefully, we can get together w/all you Illinois corgi owners soon!) So instead, I took Gibson to a small lake in my town for a walk. I had been there before, but never went pas the parking lot area, and it was really nice! There was a nice open area for him to run, trails that went along the river, and a beach area for him to go in and swim! It's nice having a place like this to take him so close to home.
This week my inlaws are over and then this weekend I'm going home to my parents and Gibson will get to meet my ENTIRE family (including lots of dogs) for my mom's birthday party...so we're excited about that!!
I hope this week is even better than last!
