Not his right?..This is where the give and take takes place..
So what's his name?
Well, i guess i should have laid out a timeline, incase it makes a difference.
-moved into new house with bf February 2009
- bought new furniture March 2009
- dog put in basement (fully carpeted with many couches to choose from) June 2009
- dog breaks through baby gate first week of November 2009
So this was somewhat spread out, not all at once.
Crating as the only option isnt set in stone, but this is a new situation to me with a previously mellow dog. so it's still a work in progress to make sure he is living a happy healthy life.
and his name is Serj. He's an awesome chocolate brown-ish husky/lab cross !
