I got so lucky with Tank - he is so laid back. He's not the type to get all excited with new people and won't jump on them when someone comes around. He loves on me but that's it and he listens when I say stay or sit or come when I call him. My mom is so impressed with him now that although she never allowed dogs in the house, she has now waived that rule for Tank. He's not the spazzy dog that we've always brought around before and he doesn't "smell", at least to her he doesn't. and he sits and stays where he is (mostly) if I leave the room and he knows I'll be back.
While I was visiting the folks, I left with Dad to go get breakfast stuff and Tank stayed with Mom. Now he's never been 'that' anxious when I leave but he's in a new place so he's not all that comfortable yet when I leave a room. Then he saw me leave the house and heard the car!! So he hops off the couch where he's on the old comforter and jumps up next to where my Mom was sitting. She's freaking out because she doesn't like dogs and doesn't want him on the 'good' cushions but doesn't want him to bite her if she pushes him off the couch. They are watching Steel Magnolias so he's hearing crying women and he's getting sad and antsy and just wanted to be close. I come home with Dad and see them sitting side by side and think WTH. Haha. All is good and all she says is, well he doesn't smell so bad like most dogs! I think he has won her over!!
way to go Tank!
