One of Daulton's chores around the house is to make sure that Dixie has enough food and water. Its a chore that he can handle by himself and he learns that part of having a dog is helping to take care of her. He has also been working on taking Dixie to the bathroom by himself and handling the leash on our walks.
So one night Matt and I noticed that Daulton was taking an exceptionally long time filling Dixie's food bowl. Turns out, Dixie got some excellent customer service that night.
Daulton learned if he holds still enough, she will eat out of his hand. Dixie learned that maybe the boy isn't so bad after all.
