Living Dangerously

Not a good photo but the milestone is too good to pass up.

Enzo has made the sofa his daytime spot for several months now. But he less often lies there if other people are in the room, and never if someone else is on the sofa. A couple of days ago, to Edith’s surprise, he briefly jumped up on the end while she was reading, though he didn’t stay. Yesterday we watched a game, and she placed his blanket as an invitation. He was clearly thinking about it. Deep thought. Extended risk evaluation. He’d stand there a while, thinking, then go away and come back later.

And then he jumped and curled up. He didn’t fully relax and close his eyes. But there he was, sharing the sofa. A big step for a formerly feral dog. We were so (quietly) excited and proud of him.
