A Gryff update

It's been about a week since we have made our changes around here and I wanted to let you know what's been going on.

I am starting to miss my dog! He is actually hanging out more with Chuck! I can hardly believe it. When I leave the house, he doesn't always wait in the sunroom for me to come home. He sometimes goes into Chuck's office and hangs out with him.

He hasn't really started hanging out with Alec, but their relationship is getting better. Alec can leash him up and bring him outside for potty without any issues from Gryff. As you may recall, Gryff would stubbornly dig his heels in and refuse to move as Alec would drag him across the driveway to the lawn. Now he prances outside and takes care of business. I started by going with them, then waiting by the door, and now this morning I completely stayed in the house.

Gryff is sleeping every night in his crate in Alec's room with no complaints. I wake up earlier than everyone and I usually try to get Alec up for him to be the one to let Gryff out of the crate, but that doesn't always happen. I make sure though that Alec is the one to bring him outside whenever he is home and Alec is also the one who gives Gryff his food.

So far, so good!

Sounds great. I really hope things get better. I totally understand how you'd want the whole family to have that "family dog" feel. All mine prefer me, because I feed them, take them in the car all the time, and play with them the most. But, they all love dh and the kids, too. Everyone gets jumped on and kissed when they walk in the door.
We went away for a few days without the dogs. And when we got home yesterday, my 6 yr old teared up while petting them when we returned. I asked him what was wrong, and he said he didn't know he would miss them so much. Sweet boy.

Tritia, Daisy, Cooper, and Bodie.
