Winston
Winston

"It’s been a great first 36 hours full of progress. While (instinctively?) running into the basement right away, he came out of his shell when laying on the floor and letting him rub up against me and everything. Major progress yesterday as he slowly climbed the stairs (it took 90 minutes of coaching) and joined me upstairs for a while. I found him this AM laying on this pillow on the couch upstairs LOL. He’s a good boy." ~ Andy, December 2021
