Thursday, his first full day home we crated him when we went to work to keep him out of trouble. Lloyd came home after 2 hours to check on him and the crate door was open and Phoenix was lying on his favorite part of the sofa.
We were concerned that he would do more damage to himself stuggling to get out of the crate so we decided to put the gate back up and lock him in the living room so he can lie on the sofa.
That worked well for the rest of Thursday until Mommy came home. I went upstairs to do some work on the computer. Being a Mommy's boy, he follows me around like white on rice. I hear Lloyd yelling at him. It turns out the little bugger had started pulling himself over the gate. Lloyd stopped him and i came downstairs.
The next morning they were locked behind the gate in the living room while i was upstairs in my office. I hear a big thump and the next thing i know he had come up the stairs and is happily trotting into my office. Oh well, it looks like no matter what we did to obey Dr's orders Phoenix had another idea. We took the gate back down so he wouldn't hurt himself.
He was pretty happy to have his freedom and we are happy our beautiful boy is back to his normal goofy self.
