I swear Jinx is channeling Odie from Garfield. He even looks like him. Here's an entertaining Jinx story for you.
Both of the dogs were really difficult to potty train. At 7 months, Jinx still doesn't have it. Both my husband and I are at home most of the day, so we take the dogs out every few hours. Jinx still finds a way to go in the house between being let out. I don't want to crate him all day and I know he will eventually get it like Gryff did.
All this week, my husband has been away with my son at scout camp and I have been working from 8-12:30 at the gym. I decided it would be in Jinx's best interest to be crated. I know he can hold it because he does all night long while sleeping on our bed. His puppy crate is too small for him, so I put him in Gryff's bigger crate. It's been working great all week. Yesterday afternoon though, I came home and found feathers in the crate where he decided he would ruin the feather pillow under the fleece that keeps the dogs so nice and comfortable. It wasn't too big of a deal, I cleaned up the feathers and put the pillow on the hamper in my closet....
Today I went out for an hour so I didn't put Jinx in the crate. What I failed to do was close my closet door. I came home to a room filled with feathers!
Nobody to blame but myself. I can just envision Gryff shaking his head saying "I don't want any part of this."
