We're calling him Tucker. We've been trying the whole crate ordeal whenever he falls asleep. We just pick him up and put him in there, and tuck the cover around it. Oddly enough, he's just fine when he wakes up in the crate, so we're using that to our advantage. He's such a snuggly puppy, but when he wants to make noise, boy howdy does he succeed. I feel bad for my neighbors...

Currently, we're working on crate and potty training. Neither are really something he's interested in. He hates the cold weather, despite his fleece and would much rather potty inside than out in the cold and rain.

He also HATES being left alone, especially in his crate. But he's only been home 24 hours - we're working on it. Wish me luck! He's currently in his crate howling up a storm - I figured now is a better time to practice crating than 10:00 pm, when I have neighbors all around me...

I knew I was going to get it for only posting one grainy photo. My first night with him, the flash kept lighting up his eyes - I feel like I don't have a single good photo of him. I'll try to capture his sweet little mug in digital form tonight. More photos to come, I promise!

sebsyd Congratulations on your new baby! It was worth every moment of waiting, right????
Good luck with him. The potty training will eventually work out. In a few years!!!! only kidding!Try to put a radio on low near his crate for company. Maybe throw his blankie into the dryer and have a stuffie for him to cuddle. I am sure that you have already thought of all of this. Good luck. Keep us posted.

ps he is adorable!!!!!!!!!

berkshire Wow! Thanks - you guys are awesome. I have Nature's Miracle under my sink for cat related carpet issues...

Camera will definitely be handy at all times!

Quita Xpen.. I use the pen instead of gates. Also, raw marrow bones are wonderful. They don't crack and splinter. Risa LOVES, LOVES, LOVES them. I get raw buffalo bones from a pet store, but our local grocery store sometimes has raw marrow bones too. (They are much cheaper from the grocery store.) Lots of paper towels. If you have carpet, some good carpet cleaner....and lots of it! I really like "Spot Shot."

clipclop Great post- I'll be referencing this when its closer to me getting my pup- I still have SO much to get! I'm holding off on getting posting supplies until I talk to Nikki (breeder) and she tells me what method she recommends-

sebsyd [quote=KCFilley;129935]I like the bully sticks--well not me, the puppy likes the bully sticks.


I'm glad you clarified that! I was getting worried. Although some days, I feel as if I could use one to chew on to tame my overwrought emotions!!!!
