So everyone in my house has been hit with the stomach flu, me hit especially hard. I am more tired than I ever have been in my life and I had a baby that had colic for 10 months, so I know tired! We played with Sonya last night till she couldn't keep her keep her eyes open, then tried to put her in her kennel. She flipped out ALL night! I know all the things you're supposed to do to help a puppy sleep in a kennel. It's the perfect size for her, she has a stuffed toy, a bone, blankets. She can see us. I took her out several times to go to the bathroom and put her right back in. I told her to hush, tapped on the kennel, praised her when she was quiet, which was only about 20 seconds total. I know she was exusted. Every time I took her outside she just wanted to sit and fall over. Several times I even would open the cage and rub her belly till she would fall asleep. I would shut the door as quietly as I could, hop into bed, and the she would start all over again. She didn't sleep for more then a few minutes at a time the whole night. Finally around 6:30, I heard my kids getting up and I passed her off to them to watch her. I went back to bed for an hour, came downstairs and found the princess sound asleep in her dog bed. It's taking all my control to not go bang some pots and pans to wake her up! If she has another night like this, I'm gonna go sleep outside!
