    Default THANK YOU-Crate Put Away

    So back in February I started a thread for advice on transitioning Joey out of the crate to run of the house. I followed each poster's advice and came up with a routine. Joey NEVER just went to her crate to sleep BUT she never threw a fit going in either. I dismantled the crate and put it in storage about 3 weeks ago.

    Joey will be 11 months old tomorrow. I had a business meeting today that lasted about 3.5 hours. I decided give her a shot at the longest ever she'd be left alone.....free. SHE DID GREAT!! I checked in on her a few times (wifi cameras) and she was either "posted up" on her chair waiting for me or sleeping.

    This of course is certainly not meant to say crates are bad, because they're GREAT! Joey was outgrowing hers and we needed to begin the transition.

    SO THANK YOU to the following people who participated in that thread with PRICELESS advice. We could not have done it without you.

    BULLY HUGS TO @ddnene @TyTysmom @madie4589 @bullmama @Chunky White @Goob14 @harveyspecter
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    Thats funny you started Joey allowing Joey free run of the house yesterday because yesterday was the first day I let Chunky have free run when I have been gone more than a few hours. He just turned 11 months on the 25th. I have wifi cameras but I didn't check on him since I knew there was no way I could of stopped him if he acted out. He did great and I heard he watched the neighbor girls play through the glass on the back door. He was stalking them like he does me I guess. LOL

    Great job Joey!!! I would totally trust Penny at this point, but not Lockjaw. Lol- so they both still get crated.
