No place like home

Mom reports that Sparky is 8 pounds now (at 6 1/2 months).

They put him in the kennel at the vet’s office overnight for the first time this weekend, and were very glad to pick him up. They said he did well.

Sparky loves his crate, so I’m not surprised that he wasn’t freaked out at the vet’s. Bedtime? He’s in the crate. Parents putting on their coats? He’s in the crate.

There’s a portion of the door that sticks into the crate, and when head-butted from the inside, acts as a lever to close the door. Sparky sometimes closes the door behind him. It’s not latched, so he’ll wait for mom to come and latch it. He always gets a treat.

Is this where I head butt it?

Well, close it already! It’s bedtime!


Note the fluffy baby blankets. He never chews them up, which is good.

    That crate make Sparky feel safe. He is so cute.

    I never crated my dogs because I would go to work and be gone for about 10 to 11 hours. I don’t think they can hold themselves that long. Besides, they sleep with me.

    AWWWW he’s so cute! He likes his crate. I sleep in mine most nights. I get a treaw when mom and dad go to bed and I go to my crate. But I can’t close my own door!
