I've had friends make comments like, "Christine, what were you thinking," to "This doesn't sound like the Christine I know," when finding out I have another dog, especially a puppy. I can't honestly answer those questions. But for whatever posessed me to get another dog I have to live with it now. So far I'm having a good time with it, even though I have had to listen to alot of whinning and crying at night when he's in his crate. It got so bad last night that I put his crate in our bedroom walk-in closet and shut the door (with a nightlight) and finally ended up on the livingroom sofa to get some sleep. Hubby is sleeping in another bedroom until Rocky adjust to his crate. Rocky also had a diet of goat's milk and rice up until now. He snubs the dry puppy food I bought and hasn't eaten much. Talked to the vet about that this morning and he told me to go buy goat's milk and add it to Science Diet puppy food with a consistancy of oatmeal. So far he's doing great with the potty training. I know this will take time and I'm patient. He also follows me everywhere I go so I have to be careful not to step on him. Right now he's asleep at my feet. Any helpful hints to raising a puppy would be appreciated.
