Reese's and my Standoff !!!!!!
Tuesday, June 03, 2014
Reese's has just been full of himself today.
Our standoff started just before 6:00 a.m. this morning. I went into the bedroom and told him I would be right back. He usually stands at the gate and waits very nicely for me to come back. I came down the hall and there he was in a "standoff". lol He knew he was wrong and he wouldn't come to me for anything. He kept going into the sun room behind the table and I couldn't chase him b/c he is still on limited activity (8 more days) since his surgery, no running or jumping..and he still has sutures with a 5" incision. As most of you know he had major emergency surgery last Thursday b/c he swallowed a large rock and it was lodged in his intestine. Finally I out-waited him and he gave me the shoe. Another time I went into the garage and when I came back he had pulled the dishtowel from the stove handle and was playing with that. He has been trying to get socks all day too. He has spent a lot of time in his crate today. Good thing he like it....he just takes a nap. He usually isn't this mischievous, he is just having one of those days. But I still love him and wouldn't trade him for anything. He will be 1 year old June 15. Labs are puppies for almost 2 years, so we have a ways to go. We got him at 8 months and we were his 6th home. I think most were military families and I know at least one of them got sent to a different area and couldn't take him. He is really pretty good.....he doesn't get on furniture and we got him potty-trained in no time. No one had really taken time to do much with him. He does have a permanent home now.
