We were busy working on a project, and the Runner needed to do something outside. Hachi normally keeps a close eye on all signs of movement outside and can obsess over them. So, the Runner asked me "to make sure that Hachi doesn't go crazy". About 15 minutes later, I realized that I'd forgotten my job. And, the house was scarily quiet. Puppy owners everywhere know what I mean by "scarily quiet".
I jumped up and searched for Hachi. Here was the sight that I found.
It also shows how long his legs and body are. He has stretched out in the past month... yet, he is still only about 32 lbs.
I had to laugh at myself for visualizing a torn apart bedroom when I realized that the house was quiet. Instead, I found this angelic sleeping face.
He has a good heart... and just needs to learn that the world isn't as scary as he thinks that it is.
