yep, now mom trusts me to stay in the house while they're gone. no more kennel :) it's great! i can roam the living room, kitchen and dining room. though they have all the doors to their bedrooms closed, i still have the majority of the house to myself. i can even look out the patio windows and check out the action in the complex. mom puppy proofed the homestead so i don't get into any trouble while they're away. they make sure to walk me before they leave and put out my toys so i can still play. i am sure to greet them when they come home and i feel like a big boy now. on tuesday mom and addie went to the zoo. i stayed here at home but for the first time their outing was longer than an hour or two and NO accidents!!!! also, i no longer sleep in my kennel at night. i sleep in my mom and dad's room next to their bed or in their bathroom since their floor is so nice and cold all the time :) i'm truly a house dog!!!
with warmest regards,
