Day by Day

Well, it was really crazy to take on a puppy. Tucker our older dog wants nothing much to do with her...and play is out of the question with him. Sad. We thought it would go better....
If he is asleep she can go lie down next to him...if she doesn't bite...
It's really harder than we thought...as it is more than potty training...it's not so smooth....
But on the bright side, we have had her about 10 days now and she has learned so much.
She knows some basics and has asked to go out probably 50% or more, so that's really good. Mostly, we are vigilant.
I am also tired...and old lady needs her "beauty" sleep...so I am not much to look at right now...LOL.
Our neighbors all love her...and we have been holding "court"....so we have support in the neighborhood as we do training...so we can actually leave her at some point....
It is hard...but will I hope be worth it.
Definitely, the last puppy we are having....
I love how she cuddles up at our feet when she wants to take a nap. Or just comes between your legs like a cat for reassurance.
She is super energetic at 6 am....so I am up...
Trying to get a good routine.....



She is really sweet most of the time...there are those times where all that pent up puppy energy gets the best of her. I can't wait to take her for walks. Unfortunately the vet said not until all her shots have  been given at 16 weeks...that another 6 weeks....yikes.....

I'm sure your older dog will come round; it just takes time and probably more than you hoped. Readjustments are difficult (for anyone). Good luck and though I've no case to make/use them, those diaper/burp pads are a delight - how lucky your family into have someone so talented in the family!
