    Special attention to little ones???

    What worked for us in differentiating potty cries from let-me-out cries was that we took CHloe out of the crate every 2 hours to take her potty (we got her at 9 weeks) - the we slowly increased the time gaps. It wasn't easy - sleeping next to an alarm clock that goes off every two hours is not...

    1st Day of puppy school - thought I was going to LOSE IT- help me!

    I cried after the first class - and swore that I would not go back... My arm was sore, I was frustrated, ambarressed - and felt so bad for my little girl - as I pulled on the leash - almost chocking her in class (as instructed)... But guess what - it got better! I learned: I learned how to...

    she peed at my feet!

    Here is a though. Chloe only started "acting up" very recently -- and I just realized that this co-incides with us allowing her to stay out of her crate when we're not home. Her crate is in the kitchen - and she now (not all the time - we mix it up) gets gated-off in the kitchen. She still...

    she peed at my feet!

    You bring up an excellent point. However (I'm not defending myself - just explaining my thought process) once she started barking at me, I gave up trying to call her - because I thought it woulding get me (us) anywhere - and I would just give her more opportunities to ignore me. I try to set her...

    First Cycle

    That sounds normal - although it varies from a girl to a girl. You should probably notice her nipples swell up as well, and she should start grooming herself more often then usual.

    Going to pick out our new pup this weekend!

    Congrats on the puppy! However - I have a question for you; how old will the puppy be? You shouldn't take him away from his littermates before, at minimum, 8 weeks of age. It's an important time for pup; he has many things to learn - such as how to act around other dogs, or bite inhibition....

    Independent Females?

    Chloe is a combination of both; she has to be in the room with me - yes, even bathroom (or she waits at the door), but she doesn't really like to cuddle :(. She bares my hugs, enjoys her massages (ahh, the things we do to keep them by), but the minute my hands are off of her, she moves to sit...

    Oh, that's excellent :D Chloe wore muttlucks in the winter - and she greatly appreciated them. I found though that the pair that went on her back feet wore out... Not underneath - but on top of her toes? :) I think we'll be getting neopaws this year. It's great that you put them on now; I...
