Man, I swear this dog would spend all day outside! He just loves laying in the sun and rolling in the grass!

He's about 70lbs now!

Well we got a crate now for him. He's on his last blanket though. Once thats gone, he'll have to stay on the metal ... he still rips everything apart. But besides for a little drool in the cage, he seems to be fine. It doesnt look like he's been biting the cage either...so thats a good sign.

Drool in his cage is a sign of stress. That's what started happening just before Carter went nuts and started destroying his cage. Keep working on the Separation Anxiety desensitizing and you may want to add something like Rescue Remedy (http://www.rescueremedy.com/) or Valerian Root (http://www.anxiety-and-depression-solutions.com/articles/complementary_alternative_medicine/herbs_supplements/valerian.php) to help with the stress. Hit me up if you want more information on it :)

Anyways I'll stop hijacking your thread now :D

no problem. We're doing obedience training right now and I like to go in a little bit early to talk with the trainer. I started a thread in the training section about our successes so far. I'll talk to him before our next class.

thanks for the info!
