We're at the end of our week with what I hope is our phone and internet problems all sorted out. We've also gotten our hot water heater fixed, and Sherlock is pretty much all settled in.
This week he remembered his house-manners and he's had no accidents (knock on wood) in about the last 3 days. He still has to learn that the lovely Ms. Yellow is to be looked at and not touched or chased -- And I do think that if Sherlock wanted to make a meal out of her, he would have done that by now. However, I still don't totally trust him around her, so we're still watching him very closely and treating/or rewarding him when he turns and walks away from her. I'm still trying to decide about his hearing. I'm pretty convinced that he can't hear much if anything. I also think that he's afraid of getting left outside because he'll go out, "do his business" and come back to the door to be let back in pretty quickly.
This shows that Sherlock has at some point, lived inside. He knows all about sleeping by a bed, and that the refrigerator is where the food is. Sherlock also knows about begging and how to endear himself; he'll rest his head on my leg and just look up at me with his big, hopeful eyes. I'll pet him and tell him "he's a good boy" Then he'll go and lay down.
