Ok, you've all heard me complain about how Sawyer hates this one beagle that lives here and gets all snarky and crap when he sees him. Well, we were just outside going potty and the beagle came out. Sawyer was off-leash right at first but he held his stay QUIETLY until I clipped the other end of the leash to him (have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE these leads?) and then sat when told and QUIETLY watched the beagle as the beagle went potty and then started jumping around at the end of his lead like usual (one of Sawyer's biggest pet peeves with any dog). I gave them a little bit of a head start before starting back towards the stairs myself and Sawyer very nicely and QUIETLY walked next to me, even when the beagle went up on his back legs on one of the landings and shoved his head through the railing ...I'm so proud!! Oh and Virgo was quiet and well-behaved as well but she feels like crap right now so she doesn't get as much credit for being good.
