Today I had 3 friends over for dinner and we practiced him holding a (very wiggly) sit while being greeted by friendly strangers. He only tried to jump up twice and even though he didn't quite settle, he did restrain himself. Practice will make perfect with this kind of interaction and so we will continue to work on it. The easiest way to practice politely greeting people is to walk downtown and I hope the weather clears up enough during out workout times over the next couple days to allow us to go for a walk on Mass st.
Jersey is stretched out in the kitchen right now, snoring loudly and having some sort of dream. Clearly he isn't worried about very much at the moment and I hope that his deep sleep means he is starting to feel safe and comfortable here. He has really come out of his shell today and that makes me happy. More updates tomorrow but everything is moving in the right direction for Jersey.
