I mentioned yesterday that I was going to leave Barney uncrated today. As it was with Tal, I just seemed to kind of know.
So today I decided to take the plunge. I left home about 7:15. I had to stop and get an allergy shot at 1, but I didn't get home until 2. No "presents", no strange wet spots on the carpet, nothing out of place. I think they all just slept until I got home. lol. So as long as he continues to behave himself, he is crate free.
Plus, I swear he gave me a look as if to say thanks for trusting him. Tal did exactly the same thing when I first started to give him free run of the house.
Pats on the back for Barney
Good Boy, Barney!
Great news. Good boy Barney.
Thanks! And I have felt that he was ready for awhile, but I wanted to gradually get him used to being uncrated for varying periods and I could only do that once summer started!
Best for me is that when I get home, Tal, Barney, and Midnight are all waiting at the back door when I get home!
Great job, Barney! Way to make your Dad proud.
(I have to tell you that I love, love reading your posts about Tal and Barney. Your love and devotion to them just shines in every post.)
“If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

High Paw, Barney! Keep it going!!!
