My Training Has Paid Off!!!
Today, on Lisl's six month birthday I had to work a six hour shift.
Lisl went into her crate and I thought I had latched both latches, but apparently I missed the bottom latch. She squirmed out of her crate sometime while I was gone.
I don't have any idea how long she was out but her water was all drank and about half her food was gone inside the crate.
She was waiting at the back door for me, excited to see me and we immediately went to the back yard and she did her business. Not having seen the rest of the house, at least it was a relief to see her go potty.
We came back in and the inspection started.
Not one thing was out of place. Nothing was chewed up. All of my boots and shoes were right were I had lined them up, and no potty on the floor! I searched upstairs in all of the rooms and all the downstairs rooms and all were just as I had left them this morning.
Even the bowl full of Hershey's Kisses was still there.
I'm so proud of her I can't hardly keep the buttons on my shirt!
I was not going to allow her out of her crate unsupervised until she was at least 10 months or older, but I may have to re-think that and start trialing her for short periods alone in the house.
Anyway, I had to share that as I was about to bust.
GOOD DOG LISL!
