We try and let Rangie burn off as much energy as possible during the day. He has gotten better at sleeping through the night because of it. In fact, I don't think he's woken us up once this week. He used to tear up everything in sight, including my chair legs and area rugs. He seems to be over that for now though. He still gets very carsick but that should improve over time. My mom let us borrow a small-ish carrying case and we had him in that in the car this weekend and he didn't get sick! I hate to keep him in there but if it helps his motion sickness we'll do it!
Ranger can sit on command very well now and next we are perfecting "lay down." That still needs some work but with some coaxing he usually gets his treat :)
This weekend Rang stayed at my moms while Trav and I went to Ocean City for the night. I was hoping my mom's dogs and he would become fast friends, they are related somehow anyway, but that didn't happen. My mom's dogs are old farts and didn't want to play. At first Ranger, who is at least twice their size, was afraid of them. By the end of the weekend he had found his courage.
We love having Rangie around. It gives us something to talk about and have a common goal. He is very playful; he and Travis are best of friends. We like to take Ranger to the park or to the JMU quad. When he sees other people he usually just sits and watches them pass. Isn't he so cute?!
Thanks for checking in! More updates on us and our puppy later!
