Learning to be a house dog

jack lr 72

Jack seemed a bit more calm this weekend – less prone to jump on us and maybe more affectionate.

So I decided to give him the run of the house this evening – something that usually ends with him snatching a quilt or other prize and leading us on a merry chase around the house until we can get him corralled in his kennel in the kitchen.

We were pleased and surprised when he didn’t do his usual snatch-and-run routine. Instead, he hopped up onto the couch with us and flopped down to be petted. This is something we’ve been waiting for since we brought him home as a puppy last November.

It won’t be long until he can hang out with the same lack of supervision that Pete has earned.
