Gryff Update

I realized I haven't given you guys an update lately on Gryff's behavior. It has been several weeks now that he hasn't growled at Alec. He doesn't go to Alec to seek any kind of affection, but he has gone to Alec to play. He is also genuinely happy when Alec wakes up and when he gets home from school.

He is also more affectionate with my husband lately. I think my weekend away was just what everybody needed.

As for the crate sleeping, well that isn't happening so much anymore. He was going into the crate with no problem at all. I started leaving the door open so he could get up with me during the night since I don't sleep through the night. Now what is happening is that he usually goes under the bed and sleeps there for a few hours, then comes up onto the bed. The difference is that he used to sleep at the foot of the bed but now he wants to be up by our heads. As long as he's being nice to Alec and seems to know his place, I have no problem with him sleeping with us. Any problems though, and he's right back behind bars.

Thanks again to everybody who has been so helpful in sorting Gryff out. Everything is working right now and I'm really happy.

Ivy,

That is good news. Sissy gets under our bed sometimes, too. Then she will get in bed with us and sometimes even get in her crate. Mostly, with us, tho.

Glad to hear Alec and Gryff are doing well.


Santa, Sissygirl

He spent the first day staring out the window waiting for me. He was very agitated that first night, but he settled down with Chuck and went to sleep. Eventually, he realized that Chuck and Alec were taking care of him and he was fine. Chuck asked me on the phone if Gryff ever looks into my eyes like he really loves me and I told him all the time. This was the first time Gryff ever looked at Chuck like that.

When I got home, Gryff was completely ecstatic. It took 5 whole minutes or even a bit longer just to get him to stop jumping and kissing me. It was quite a welcome. Now that I've been home a week, he is back to following me around like velcro. However, he has been more affectionate with Chuck and more playful with Alec. I'll take what I can get. He's a good pooch.

That's great news Ivy! All in all it doesn't matter where he sleeps as long as he's found his place in the family and you're happy!
