      Crazy monkey puppy!

      Presto is fearless and likes to move and jump. His "thing" has always been jumping onto the bed from the ottoman, which entails leaping over the footboard. Mostly he's visiting/harrassing the cat. Well, he's gotten bigger which means a larger stride, and leaping off and on the bed has become heart-attack inducing in me and a recipe for shoulder/elbow/neck/back issues in him.

      On Sunday, he leaped from the mattress, bypassed the ottoman and landed on the hardwood, which he apparently thought was a blast because he turned around, jumped on the bed and then went to do it again (I stopped him)! I tried teaching him how we use the ottoman on the side of the bed to get off and on, but nope, leaping from the back, a height of about four feet, was his MO.

      I shut the bedroom door and went to the shed where I keep x-pens and too small/too large crates. Found this x-pen topper and pushed it down between the mattress and the footboard. Problem solved! (Luckily he doesn't climb!). He now has one option and that is side of the bed and ottoman. He's not happy about it!

      It looks like he has an entire bedroom in his crate.

      Those antics tell me that he's been watching the cat very closely.
