Cream Shop Friday: Vito Keeps Safe Distance from PetFence
(photo: "He did it, Mummy." Caroline is both distracted and in shock over Vito's meteoric success with the PetFence.)
It's official. The bumrushes are over. Vito has accomplished his greatest feat yet, proving once and for all that he CAN change. Caroline and I were walking on the sidewalk just outside the PetFence boundary. Vito sat on the driveway. Landscapers were mowing the lawn at the house across the street. He barked from the driveway. Three kids on scooters passed by, Vito stood up, barked, but did not advance from his position on the driveway. I don't want to celebrate prematurely but this is definitely a crucial breakthrough. Kudos, Vito, Kudos.
