Well all this ground work has paid off! Today we were talking to the neigbours (who own a horse) and their dog was going off its nut barking at Chinga, running around mental and whatever else. Chinga stood there and looked at it "Hmmm what the hell are you doing?"
Then the dog came up to him and sniffed him and Chinga stuck his nose down and sniffed the dog. It was the cutest thing and he loved it. He was with dogs at his old owners place but they didn't bark or run around mental. So all our ground work with the tarp and different objects has paid off!
