Day #7 with my 1 year old schnauzer. We had a really good day. I had a 2-hour obligation tonight that required me to leave him alone and it got dark during that time. I practiced leaving for an hour at a time during the day and he was fine. Came back tonight and he was sitting up on a rug near the door just waiting in the dark. My heart just exploded with how precious that was! He hadn’t touched the treats I left for him or anything. I cried. I don’t wanna leave ever again lol.
