Hello: I am back at work today- My husband is home with the boys- I must admit it is nice to have a break after 5 intense days with the new baby-- But yesterday we had several breakthroughs. After being caught in the act mid day and corrected--- it all of a sudden seemed to click with Cash where he should go. Very cute you can see his little brain going.
Also last night, Cash and Jasper played, really played, and Jas my sweet, submissive, incredibly gentle boy even tried to show the puppy who was boss. Didn't last long- but at least he was feeling his oats. The puppy on the other hand is somewhat learning that there are enough toys to go around and he doesn't always have to have what jasper has in his mouth. (until last night every time Jasper finally relaxed enough to chew a toy, Cash would come and take it- and Jas would just drop and look at the puppy and then look at me- same thing with treats)
But most importantly, Jasper is eating. Which is one of the main reasons we got a 2nd dog. You may recall that Jas is a very finicky eater. I have cooked for him, used the raw diet cooked, bought kibble after kibble. But since Cash arrived on the scene- Jas has been eating his food quicker and more consistantly. And last night and this morning after Cash was done eating his puppy food- Jasper went in and finished up the rest. Cash didn't seem to mind.
I also had a breakthrough, I saw glimmers of how good this will be for Jas
thanks for listening,
Missy, Jasper & Cash
