Thank you all so very much for all of your great comments. We really love him, but OMG, what have we gotten ourselves into? We both got up this morning shaking our heads, and wondering if we could go through with this. He had pooped all over his cage, and piddled where there was a spot left. He also pooped all over the floor, every time we let him out, he would go right to some area and soil it. Well, me being who I am, I cleaned, sprayed and decided the best course of action would be to go online and read everything I could read about bringing puppies home. The first thing I learned was that we were feeding him way too much. No wonder he was pooping everywhere. His poor little tummy was emptying out, so he could put more in. I need to explain, at this time, that the only puppy we have had before was Cujo, our big Red Siberian Husky. I guess he ruined us, he was so good. We put him in his crate at night and never heard another peep out of him till in the morning. He never soiled his crate, and held it all night from day one. He was an outside dog also, but never once, while we had him, did he soil his own area. This puppy does not feel this way at all, so today we are giving him puppy sized meals, then we walk him right away. He is still piddling a little bit in his crate, but it has been cut way down. We are also dividing his time between playing out in the RV and being in his crate. We talked to the lady at the Humane Society, and she suggested we do this. She says, just like our babies, they need to sleep a lot, and they begin to see the crate as their den. So far it is working really well, so we will see. I want to share another picture of this big boy out walking.
If any of you have more tips for us, please share. We want what is best for him, and as you can probably tell, he is already securely in our hearts.
I discovered Hulu this week. It is a program that came with my new laptop that allows you to go back and watch TV programs that you may have missed. They don’t offer a lot of different ones, but enough that you could catch up or watch things you haven’t seen before. Like the Green Channel. I never had watched it before, but my sister, Dottie told me she really liked it, so I gave it a shot, and I like it too.
I have 2 new followers. The first is Hembree. He writes his blog mostly for his children, but it is a very interesting blog, so if you get a chance, check it out. The second new member is Pepper. I couldn’t find a site for them, so if you have one, please let me know, and I will share it with my readers. Hope you both enjoy the ride.
I am going to make this a short post. I didn’t get any sleep last night for some strange reason. Just seems to happen once in a while. So, I think I will try to grab a nap before I have to begin on supper. I will catch you all later… :)
