Yesterday was day one. Theo didn't have a single accident in the house, including his crate that morning and evening! It was day one of the six week, no accident time frame that means your dog is house trained. Do I really expect to go six weeks, or even another day without an accident? Not really, but it was still a great accomplishment for Theo. Good boy! If you'll remember, last Sunday he also had a day with no accidents, but I was holding out on celebrating until it happened on a day when I wasn't home with him all day. Yesterday was that day. Hooray!
He was good so far this morning too, for the most part. He did poop inside the house rather than doing it when I had taken him out 15 minutes before, but he did it on his puppy pad while I was out of the room, so I think that still counts as a non-accident.
But of course, in the spirit of Theo's step forward then back habits, when I came home yesterday I saw that he had peed only twice and both times on the puppy pad, which he hadn't moved or chewed up. Good boy! I also noticed that he somehow managed to get the puppy pad outside his pen that we keep by the back door inside his pen, and that pad was completely shredded to pieces. Eh, I'll take that over a hot mess any day!
St. Patty's Day Feast - I can't believe how long it's taken me to blog about the food I made during the week of St. Patty's Day! I made such good things that week and such good...
