I think tonight may have been a turning point for the two of them. This is the first time Daisy has ever corrected him like this. She's been the best mentor for him, I couldn't have asked for better.

Spirit's being very quiet this evening now. I think he's reflecting on the meaning of it all. Growing up, serious business
Rules are hard. Not all the toys are mine; is an especially tough lesson for a pup. First time Buddy told Ivan he sulked for 2 days but now he has learned that not all things are shared equally.
