On His Own

We took a big risk last Wednesday night and left Andy at home by himself for about 6 hours while we attended a concert in Philly. He's been by himself for that long before but just never in the evening, when he tends to be a little more active and needy. I predicted disastrous consequences if we didn't have a solid game plan.

This was the plan: Andy would spend the day at Camp Bow Wow. He would run, wrestle, and bark his little head off so that by the end of the day he would be plumb tuckered out. We put away all our shoes and anything else Andy might want to destroy. Before leaving the loft we put the pup in his Thundershirt, gave him a "cookie," and hoped for the best.

Thankfully the plan worked! Andy was so tired by the time he got home from day camp he just crashed on the couch and stayed there the entire evening. When we got home a little after midnight he barely even acknowledged our return. In fact it took some coaxing to even get him to go outside for his last potty. He was one tired pup and as far as we could tell he didn't get into any trouble. Success!
