we're working on training Chewy not to run away, because it is getting to be a problem. he runs away every time i let him out. so i've been taking him for two walks and doc has been taking him for one in the afternoon. but Chewy is getting really creative with the escape plans. he got away last night and again today, right after i'd taken him for a walk. brat. so he got locked up in the kennel for an hour and a half. now he's curled up with Felix and Leeloo. it's so hard to punish him. he's so good most of the time. the only bad thing he does, in fact, is run away. he gets off the couch when you tell him, he comes when you call him, he stands up for treats. he's good on the leash. i don't understand his running away. he even gets down off the couch when he sees i am getting ready to lay down, he knows when i'm settled that he will be allowed up under the blanket to cuddle.
and he's going to have to do it soon, because before i start on my poetry writing i want to take a nap. i didn't get much sleep last night.
