This dog is SMART, yo! Today was her first day spending from 9-5 in her crate – since we brought her home, I’ve been dashing home on my lunch hour to let her out for a bit – and she handled it like a champ. As soon as I got in we rushed to the street, she did her business, then we dragged eachother around the block in an homage to a real walk because it was COLD and nobody wanted to spend any more time in it than they had to.
I went to my room to fire up the ol’ new laptop and she came running in with a toy, seamlessly transitioning from the couch (our usual evening hangout spot) to my bedroom. Fetch, tug of war, chewtoy, rinse, repeat. Gracie’s the best.
