    Default Sweet Moment

    Hubby likes Batty, but hasn't really had that much to do with training or playing with him. He'll normally give Batty pats and I've caught him giving him a cuddle and talking to him a few times but last nights moment brought tears to my eyes.

    I was folding the washing when all of a sudden a little black flash raced past and stopped in the corner of the living room, next thing I know hubby comes running in, tags Batty and says "You're it" and runs away... Batty raced after him, hit him with a paw and barked before dashing away again. This went on for about 15 minutes when both stopped and collapsed on the living room floor.

    Then hubby came out with something that made me speechless. "Honey, can you show me how to teach him something?" I swear my jaw just about hit the ground. Hubby has now taught Batty to play "Tag" and to "Roll Over". I'm so proud!

    I've been wanting hubby to be a bit more involved with Batty for ages. This morning he asked me not to take Batty for his walk so early so he could come too!

    Very happy today!

    Very much so!

    Hubby is a 'mechanical' person. He likes machines and things that are predictable, so dogs aren't really his kind of thing. He wasn't that thrilled about getting a dog to start with, he let it happen because I was buying him a project car

    Anyone else have moments like these or just very sweet moments to share?

    Aww! That is adorable! My OH is working nights this week which is nice for Poppy but cr@ppy for us as we don't get to see one another!

    Anyway when I got home from work yesterday I said a quick hello and goodbye to OH and we swapped info on how Poppy's day was...mainly talked about her toileting! Haha!

    Then I sat on the couch to watch a bit of T.V. Well ALL NIGHT all Poppy wanted to do was be on the couch! She taught herself how to jump up there and we are trying to teach her not to do it (even tho we do sometimes like her up there with us). Anyway talked to OH on the phone about it and out it comes that they had long cuddles on the couch and she even fell asleep next to him and cuddled in for about an hour!!!

    I thought that was very cute even though it was naughty! OH is the BIGGEST softy when it comes to Poppy!!!

    Me too Greys, makes me realise I'm not the only soft touch out there.

    Amy, as for the sometimes on the lounge, sometimes not. I use a rug as a cue for when they are allowed on the lounge. Now they dance around waiting for the rugs be put down.
