After getting off a little earlier than usual today, we went on an extra long stroll to a park near our house and let Rufus run free. He also happens to be getting much better at his recall skills, which makes me super happy.
Also, I have to point out that it makes me so very happy to see how much these two absolutely adore each other now. It took months of trust-building exercises and patience, but I can officially say with complete confidence that Rufus loves Alex almost as much as he loves me. Almost.
