Yes - it seemed a tad impractical to me even at the time.
Perfect timing! And what a treat to have houseguests.We have visitors staying - a rarity in these Covid days - and Freddy was very confused at first, with non stop barking and wiggles of pure delight at having more people to play with. He wanted to bark when he heard someone get up to go to the bathroom in the night, but was persuaded to settle down for a snuggle instead, and he is gradually getting used to the idea that there are other humans moving around his house. I am very glad my friends were able to visit, both because it has been so long since I have seen them, and because the timing is perfect for Freddy. He is now old enough to absorb the idea that he does not need to alert to invited visitors, just ahead of hitting the 5 month point when, in my experience, pups start alerting to everything!
