Scott took Scout with him hunting the other day. Jett stayed behind. I went to the gym and the store in the morning and then came back to find Jett all anxious. You see, he's never really been left alone. He's always had Scout. Scout hates being alone for reasons of his own, but he spent the first year of his life "brother-less". Jett doesn't understand what that means.
So I took him with me to Lowe's to buy paint for the kitchen. Everyone just loved him. Even the dog he decided to bark at in the middle of the store. He is such a puppy still. We practiced some sitting and staying while we waited for the paint. Scott often takes Scout to Lowe's and will just drop the leash and say "stay" and Scout will sit there and watch Scott shop. Jett is…not quite there yet. I don't trust him not to run off.
I had a hankering for a caramel brûlée latte, something I got hooked on my first winter in Alaska. Though I've been staying away from sugary drinks lately, I felt the need to just live a little. We went to the drive-thru and the barista asked if he wanted a puppy latte. I had to ask what that was because the last thing Jett needs is caffeine. It was just a cup of whipped cream and Jett definitely enjoyed it. I think it's the sweetest thing that Starbucks offers these to dogs.
Can we just say yay for dog-friendly businesses? I never realized before how much it means for places to be dog-friendly. I suppose it's a good thing we live in Colorado because it's a very dog-friendly state.
