Today i am giving Perry a proper taster of being left. I got up at 7.15 [will be getting up at 6 usually]came downstairs and let Perry out into the garden, he did a wee and two poos!!! he got massive praise and i got a whole back end wiggle not just a tail wag! I then brought him in, i made him his brekkie which he just sniffs at in the morning, for some reason it takes him ages to eat his meals....anyways, i put the stair gate up between the lounge and the kitchen, i mopped the floor [not cos he had made a mess, just cos thats what i do in a morning now ], i tidied the kitchen, put new puppy pads down, made a fuss of him, said be a good boy and pretended to leave the house [opened and shut the front door, turned the key ect] and snuck up to my bedroom to see what happens.... which is wear i currently have been for 10 minutes....he has been whineing intermittently so we will see how he fares... This is all a little new to him, as he has only had the run of the kitchen once, when i was having a mid-day bath and the babygate thing is new to him too which i am trying out cos all the sites i have been on say dont leave him in a locked room wish me luck!!!!! oo he has stopped whineing now!!!! Go Perry!! Go Perry!!
