You are home!

Lee is always very excited when we get home and likes to jump up. We have been working to eliminate this problem.  We have been unsuccessful with this in the past (Gemi jumped and nipped hard all her life!), but are hopeful this time will be better.

What we are trying to do is teach her to greet people at the door with a toy. Having a toy in her mouth seems to stop the jumping.

Yesterday I got home from work and she had her toy. She was excited but did not jump. I was so happy. I let her out, we had some love and she didn't jump. Then I went upstairs to change out of my work clothes and as soon as I got into the bedroom she got so excited she jumped. This was like 5 minutes after I got home, so it seems we may have just taught a delay in jump, but I still see it as progress!
