Tonight Grendel was romping around in the house with a rubber jingle ball. He let me reach into his mouth and take it away from him. He made no protest and showed no resentment at all, and I didn’t even have anything to trade.
Here is a picture taken just before our walk this evening. He is roaming free around the yard with no longe line.
The heat and humidity has been my ally, I think, but he has calmed down immeasurably since his arrival here.
