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. :)

Way to go Barney!!! Make your daddy proud, and us too!!! I wouldn't expect anything any different. You seem to have such a close family unit with the three of you and the cat. :)

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!

Thanks for the kind words. My granny used to say people should never have kids, pets, etc., if they were not going to care for them. Sounds advice if you ask me! But it really doesn't feel like work. When I see them happy, tail wagging, doing a happy dance, well, it just makes everything seem ok.
