Default Progress!

Morgan just made a huge step yesterday in earning back his "free range" status.

A little backstory, for those who may not know/remember: Morgan is almost two years old. We tried several months ago to allow him time unsupervised and uncrated while we were out of the house. Though it worked fine for the first couple days, it ultimately resulted in the chewing of furniture and the eating of laundry, thus landing him back in the crate while we are gone. We ruled out SA, and determined that he was a combination of bored and too lazy/confused to seek out his own chew toys.

Fast forward to last night, Jon and I are upstairs in the sewing room working on a project. Naturally, Morgan and the cats follow us up, as none of them can stand missing out on the action.

After a little while, we notice somebody is missing. Morgan. Where did he go? What is he doing?

Before I could even call his name, Morgan wanders back into the room... carrying a NYLABONE(!!!), and he proceeds to lie down and chew on it.

He went all the way downstairs to find an appropriate chew toy!!! He CAN learn!!!

Later in the evening, Morgan disappeared again. We went looking for him, only to find he was sound asleep on his bed in our bedroom. This was about 10:30pm. So I guess I can also be proud of him for putting himself to bed when he was sleepy.

What a good dog. <3
