The Champ

I have to say, Theo has just been awesome since his surgery. I haven't seen him try to lick his stitches once, and I've been watching him like a hawk. It's hard making sure he doesn't jump up on the couch or run up the stairs, but other than that, he's been a dream. I know how lucky I am. I'm glad I only had to make him wear an e-collar for the two days while I was at work. Even that small amount was a lot for him. Hehe.

He's been acting like a dream in other ways too. We took him over to a co-worker's house yesterday for a barbecue. When we first got Theo, it was hard to get together with people because he would bark non-stop. It was hard for others to play with him because he would be mouthy with them. It was hard to bring him over to other people's houses because he would pee. Well he was just wonderful yesterday. He didn't have a single accident (he actually walked outside to go when he had to), he didn't get mouthy once, he played with the toys we brought him, and he didn't bark at all. Everyone commented on how well behaved he was and how much improved since we first got him. It made me really proud of Theo, and myself and Husband, since we worked so hard on training him in all of those areas. I'm glad it paid off. I know he's not usually that much of a dream, Theo always behaves better than usual around other people, but even at home just with me, he's definitely improved.

Theo also has a new play friend. Bailey the Beagle. She is the cutest Beagle I've ever seen. I love her howl, and her soft fur, and most of all, how great she and Theo play together. Her owner is a really nice and fun woman too. Whenever we meet each other walking, she always lets Bailey play with Theo as long as she wants, and we always end up walking around together afterward. Maybe after our kitchen is done we can have them over for a puppy play date.

Unfortunately, in true Corgi fashion, sometimes he chooses to act like he has no idea that I've ever trained him at all. The little worm! :p
