Opening his Christmas gift
We have had Bernard a year now and he is so much fun! Brooke loves him; sometimes he is the only thing that can make her laugh uncontrollably. He has learned that my day's consist of caring for Brooke, cooking, school, and cleaning. Most of the time you can find him asleep on the couch, resting his head on a pile of pillows.
There are times that he does require much attention and isn't afraid to tell you, literally. He will bark in my face or start attacking me with so much rubbing and kisses it is hard not to fall over. He started a habit of barking when he wanted to go outside, which happened way too often. Kyle bought him a doggie door and he seems to enjoy it. We are hoping that in the next couple of years we can let him stay in the house by himself and use the door when he wants to go outside. He isn't quite ready for it, as he still likes to grab things he shouldn't just to get attention.Sometimes Bernard is afraid to come in through the doggie door because his nails are a little long and when it rains his paws get wet. All of this contributes to major slipping and sliding and it scares him so much. It took him a couple days to come back in through the door after a traumatic run in with the wall.
He has been a lot of fun and I am glad to have him around during the day. He loves us so much and we love to cuddle with him every morning and night.
