Joey 2, Dad 0

We’ve been trying to break our dog’s habit of sleeping on the sofa at night.  We started putting chairs on it to keep Joey from climbing up on the sofa.  The first night, it worked, but then look what happened the last two nights.  He’s too smart!

Here is a picture of Joey and his new best friends.

Naughty Joey

Joey continues his naughty streak.  Most recently, he swiped a box of straws from the kitchen counter and then had fun playing with them.

This week, he figured out a way to jump onto Annika’s bed but then couldn’t muster up the courage to jump off.  He sat there whining for over half an hour!

Needless to say that all the bedroom doors are now closed.

Collie Meets Bulldog

This past weekend, it was raining but we found a small window that was dry enough to take Joey for a walk.We headed out to the canyon.

On the way home, we stopped off at the Garcia’s house so Joey could meet Bogart.  Bogart may look like a brute but he is a sweetheart and tolerated Joey’s playfulness.

They “dueled” each other for over an hour but by the end of it, they were buddies!

After his hike, he went straight to sleep and wouldn’t be bothered!

More Joey Pictures

By popular demand, here is a Joey update.

Joey is finally getting into a routine.  He slept seven whole hours last night and only had two little accidents in the house today!  He is also napping a bit more during the day, and seems a lot more relaxed.

Here are some more pics.

We are crate training Joey, but in the meantime, he has picked out a cozy spot by the sofa.

Here’s a couple in our back yard.
