Some good Gryff news

Today I went to wake Alec up and Gryff followed me into his room like he always does. I brought Gryff up on the bed and he actually stayed there. I left the room, but Gryff didn't follow me. He stayed with Alec. I came back in and left and again, Gryff stayed. I got some treats and rewarded Gryff and gave the rest to Alec to give to Gryff. It was 10-15 minutes before Alec got up and Gryff left the room. I was so happy I almost cried.

Yesterday we went to the City for the day and my neighbor took Gryff. Gryff loves playing with her dog Maggie, but for most of the day, he hid behind the couch. It wasn't until 9:30 at night that Gryff decided he wanted to play. What a strange pooch I have.

I have come to realize he's not the fetch your slippers kind of dog. He'll greet you excitedly when you walk in the door, but after a minute he's back to his snotty, cat like indifference. Brat.

Great Griff and Alec news!! Izzy does the same thing....you'd think she'd be a real velcro dog the way she greets us when we get home....but after the greeting, she's off to the windows and doors to watch the world go by! She did show some needyness last night. We had a thunderstorm and she wanted to be on one of our laps the whole time. I think it was the first time she'd ever jumped onto my lap without me having food!

Wonderful news! I think the trick is to love them for exactly who they are and not that pretty little picture we all have of our perfect furbaby. It's a lot like children.

Awww..that's sweet, Ivy!

Sophie who is now 5 has usually been content to greet you as Gryff does and be off..but now, for some odd reason she has been seeking out more affection from us..

I'll take THAT!

Yay, for Gryff and Alec! They may turn out to be good friends yet. That's great news, Ivy.

So nice to hear about Gryff and Alec. I hope this keeps getting better and better.
I keep telling Kodi and Shelby that there is a new baby coming and they will have to be very gentle. Maybe it will sink in by the time December rolls around.
