Day 1 (I was away for 7 hours):
I came home with Sapphire greeting me on the couch, her side of the couch! Looked like she managed to limbo under the gate. I gingerly looked around the house... everything was in place! 2 stars for Sapphire!

Day 2 (3 hours):
I placed card boards under the gate. I came back- and she greeted me on the couch too! She manage to undo the card boards, no damage, another 2 stars!

Day 2 evening (Slightly over an hour):
I kind of anticipated this.
She pulled down my work bag, stole a pack of peanut butter biscuits and half a packet of instant tea. It was a mess. The Hubs and I were too occupied with the scene to take a photo.

I must have absent mindedly left the house with my bag too near the edge of the table.

Cleaned the floor 100 times. I even used lemon juice to get rid of the oiliness.

Sapphire is now down to zero star.

Boy, I'm glad I'll be home the whole day today and tomorrow too!

she looses all her stars in one day?

So not fair!

Stop on by for a visit

Never mind Sapphire! Let your humans say whatever they want to say. Anyway it was not your fault!

River said...

Of course it is the human's fault. You should get a star for whatever you can snag, especially off the counter. Should be humans 0, Sapphire 2.

love & wags,

Love ya lots

Don't give up yet. Maybe try really short periods of time and reward her bigtime if she is good. Be sure you have the right gate for the area you want to block off, some work better than others.

I'm betting she thinks she deserves more stars for accomplishing those feats.

Sapphire you sure get plenty of talent stars though!

woof - Tucker

Oh! I was just getting excited hearing about the first two and then I read three...! :-( What a shame! You sound like you were making such good progress, Sapphire! But still, you know what they say about 2 steps forward, 1 step just have to keep persisting!
