One thing I am enjoying is watching Deeds emulate Chief.
When they prepare to go outside for potty time, Col. Deeds is either right up front, or trapped in the back by the older crew. However, when he returns to the deck door, he will rush inside to check his food bowl, but return to the deck to greet the others. Deeds jumps on them, smothering them with excited kisses. And then, there is a slight standoff when Chief finally returns to the deck after pottying and checking the borders. Chief is always the last to enter once he knows everyone else is secure inside. Deeds feels he needs to wait. Chief will grunt, sending The Colonel inside. Then, Chief enters with Deeds jumping on him and kissing him.
It’s the sweetest thing and bittersweet as well. I know the chapters are slated for a change one day.
