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!
