When we went to pick out the new puppy we took along a sheepskin toy bear that I intended to rub all over the new pup and bring home for Jax to smell, so he could get used to the pup's scent. I ended up giving the bear to Jax's sire instead (he's irresistable and I couldn't help myself). So, when we got home I took the sweater I wore to the breeders and let Jax get a good whiff of it instead. Then I put the sweater in the new pup's crate, next to Jax's. It's been there every since. Last night, Jax brought the sweater in the living room. I thought I must have left the crate door open by mistake, so I took the sweater away from him and put it back in the crate. The third time Jax brought the sweater out, I returned it to the crate and watched. It was no accident and no mistake. Jax knows how to open the crate door - from the outside only, thank goodness. Now on the shopping list for new puppy supplies, a lock for the crate.
