Big Boy Bed

Well, we've passed another great landmark in the Lantz family this week. Friday night was Cinco's first night in his "big boy bed," meaning a bed on the floor in the living room rather than in a crate or barricaded in. He got up once the first night to pay us a visit in our bedroom, to which dad (Matt), said, "No, bad dog," and returned him to his bed. He slept the rest of the night out there. He is getting even better as the days go on. Last night, Matt says Cinco even got up in the middle of the night, went to the kitchen to get a drink of water (from his bowl - we haven't taught him to serve himself from the fridge yet) and went back to bed without being told.

They just grow up so fast. (sniffle sniffle) Our little boy is getting so big. We are anxious to see how he will handle having a little 'sister' in the house in a couple of months with the arrival of the baby. We took him to the park last Friday as well, where our over 800 summer staff were having a dinner picnic, and he did quite well with all the counselors, and even the little kids that were there. He was very gentle and even gave one little 2 year-old a kiss on the lips when she bent down and puckered up. So, there is hope that he is calming down and will be a great house dog, and a good big brother.
