Mike and I think our pup is awesome. He loves us and is very loyal to us but since we got back from Northern Pines… Let’s just say he is being pretty rebellious.
Before we left he hadn’t had an accident in awhile. Of course the night before we left he decided to poop in the bathroom. Not ideal but we blamed it on him not feeling good because he had gotten into some of Leia’s food. Since coming home he has had 4 accidents and all were in the middle of the night – after Mike has let him out twice.
It’s frustrating, but it’s expected. You can’t exactly leave your dog for two weeks with a somewhat stranger and expect him to be loyal to you when you return. We are learning this and retraining a few things now – like pooping and pottying outside and making him sleep in his kennel until he can be trusted again. Everyday he gets a little bit more comfortable and less rebellious which we definitely appreciate.
So there’s the Alfie Update. I guess if our biggest problem with him is a little rebellion after being away from us for two weeks then we’ve got it pretty great. We wouldn’t trade him for anything.
