Feels like a post from the Big Brother house but we have now been a full two days with out pr little Hugo and it feels like he is beginning to trust us some more 🙂
We only had just over 30 minutes of yowling last night as we all went to bed – it was more like 2.5 to 3 hours on Friday night so that has been categorised as a win 🙂
However, a small mistake was made and the washing machine was left on delayed start and so promptly woke our new little friend at 5:15am this morning 🙁 the almost immediate howling meant that somebody needed to get up with him – given daddy had some work to do from last week, he jumped up for the job 🙂
A small we had been lot for the little guy and when he went out, he had another and then promptly went to sleep in daddy’s lap while daddy reviewed a work video, so he was popped straight back into his ‘cab’ and daddy laid next to him on the office floor from around 6:30am for a 49 minute kip 🙂
The change between yesterday and today is very stark – today Hugo is more than amiable regarding settling into his cab – yesterday he had little interest in using the cab (crate).
We have ordered a 1m high octagonal metal framed run to attach to the under stair den for Hugo so that it can be considered more permanent than the bike box cardboard setup that we presently have – he will deffo soon figure out how to body swipe it and leave us in shit street and chew the damned carpet on the bull nose…. (He keeps trying…)
All the books tell us that we have a long journey ahead of us regarding training Hugo, although we do feel good about our progress thus far. We have endured many ‘accidents’ so far, we do feel that we are having in a positive direction – time is the only teller on this journey however.
This week will be fun as we have our first school run with Hugo and we have a chap coming round to hopefully fix up the en-suite – so we might have a functioning en-suite by the end of the week – Gary reckons two days will nail it – we all hope he is right 🙂
