A Big Decision

Since our little Houdini has been escaping more than usual (see his feats of wonder here and here), last Friday we made the decision to let him stay out while we’re away.

It wasn’t an easy one. We’re pretty protective of our new home, and obviously want things to stay as nice as possible for as long as possible. Watson’s only about 2 years old, and still has a lot of puppy in him.

What made things a bit easier was that he hurt himself a bit on Thursday. We noticed he had a cut on his inner thigh – small, but deep. Thankful that it wasn’t something worse. That small injury was the determining factor – maybe it was time to let him loose.

I’m probably jinxing myself by writing this…but he’s doing really well. So well, in fact, that when we arrive home he rarely gets off the couch to greet us. No big deal, bud. It’s not like we could be robbers or anything.
