I'm about ready to scream ... Murphy has started barking in the crate in the morning again. I'm at a loss. His food hasn't changed, he still gets taken out at night at the same time. If anything, he's been spending even more time out of the crate with us. But now, every morning, he barks and barks -- a definite GEB no-no. This is testing me; I'm trying not to get too frustrated because I can't get this to stop. Arrgh! I told him this morning that he's working to make sure I don't cry on Saturday.
On the other hand, this willfulness is a good sign for eventual success, providing it can be harnessed.
