decided he would rather be a pet, so he was retired

have been having a great time with Ernie. So far he
has been a delight and won't leave my side. He
follows me everywhere I go in the house and seems to
be enjoying the walks, but doesn't like the cold
snow on his paws. Occasionally he'll pick up a paw
and fake a limp, I am sure its the cold because he
alternates the limping paws from one time to the
next. Unfortunately he hasn't got the schedule down
yet and has pooped in his crate both times I left
him alone. I'm pretty impressed in his willingness
to go to his crate just the same. I'll just give the
crate a tap and he walks right in. Ernie has been
sleeping on the floor next to the bed and then finds
his way to the crate in the middle of the night. You
were right about one thing... I cant keep him off
the couch and don't mind as he is so affectionate
and I enjoy his company so much. I think I'll let
him roam the house when I'm at work once he proves
he knows that I set the schedule for potty time.
I'll send you some photo's soon.
Thanks for everything.
