We have decided to rename Kilo "Sir Kilo the Explorer." He just wants to know everything and be everywhere! We were gating him in the kitchen for awhile until he somehow figured out how to open our sliding pocket doors. The first night we got home from work and found him upstairs, we figured it might have been a fluke and we had accidentally left the door open a crack. So the next day, I verified the doors were shut all the way before I left, but we came home and found him upstairs again! He wasn't destructive at all - he just doesn't like to be cooped up! Obviously we don't want him going upstairs (or downstairs!!) on his own, so we decided to let him hang out in the living room with our other dog who doesn't get crated during the day. Since then, he's been just fine! I think he just likes to have the company. We had a similar issue at night - we used to gate him in the living room, because he tends to pace around a bit at night, and sometimes wakes me up when he bumps into things. But, he decided he didn't like that gate and wanted to be with us, so he figured out exactly how to knock the gate down! Now, he sleeps in the bedroom on his doggie bed. He sleeps much better through the night now that he knows his way around, so it has worked out for everyone! He gets to have company, and we get to sleep!! Kilo is a wonderful companion - he's very easy-going, and so easy to love. Every time you touch him, his little nub starts to wag. My 5 y/o niece thought it would be fun to play "bongos" on his back, and he just wagged away - he loved the attention! I had her stop, and then start again to see what happened - as soon as she took her hands away, he stopped wagging, and as soon as she started up again, he did too. He's tolerant of everyone - young kids, older folks, playful puppies. Our 18-month old boxer Kenny tried very hard to get him to play this morning - biting at his legs, jumping all over him. Kilo made a small effort to play, but mainly just sat there and tolerated the antics of our adolescent boxer. He's such a wonderful dog and deserves a wonderful forever home!
