The Great Crate Strike

pFor a very long time Toby has been fighting us on going in his crate. Shortly after Ainsleigh was born he went on strike from coming into the bedroom at night all together and slept downstairs.

For the last three nights he is again refusing to go into his crate so Will and I have decided to see how it goes with letting him sleep on the floor. He tries a couple of times a night to get in bed with us but that is not allowed AT ALL! So here is what he did last night, he took his blanket out of his crate.

Guess he is officially done with his crate (too bad he doesn’t have a choice during the day)

    I can’t blame Toby – those crates look too much like jail and soooo small. Guess I had better stop putting off making the new dog bed cover things. I have had the fleece since last fall. Now, is Tess going to want to join Toby in being “free” at night? Hang in there Toby- new lounging pillow covers coming your way. Get two old pillows ready to use for the covers Chris.BR/Hugs,BR/Nana

    Yes our next step is to see if Tess can handle herself out of the crate.

    She usually can’t because she nudges us when left to her own devices and because she can’t sit still.
