Ginger's home! Day 3

Hi, everyone! Just a quick update, Ginger is now home with us and we're settling in with our new life with a Havi. She's really sweet and seemingly attached to my husband. Follows him everywhere! She loves my daughter too but definitely my hubby is the centre of her world.

Doug, our breeder, met us at Abbotsford on Sunday and met 3 of Ginger's littermates and their lovely owners. The puppies were all wonderful, and he stayed to go over some grooming stuff (we did their paws with a beard trimmer!) and first night.
So far so good, Ginger has had some accidents to be expected, but it's a process. I'm delighted to report that poops are going well and she went outside today in our backyard.

She doesn't seem to like sleeping in her crate, but somehow last night we got her to sleep for a while with me sleeping right beside her on the couch! My husband didn't sleep the first night, she just cried in her crate all night and she ended up sleeping with him on the couch.

For pictures, I've opened up an instagram account for her, please follow if you like! :-)

For now, thankfully lurking and reading all the awesome posts here as a new puppy parent.

Congrats on that little cutie. Puppies are a lot of work, but it gets better and they don't stay puppies for long, so enjoy it even when you are exhausted.

Congratulations! I would make sure you don't cave on her sleeping in the crate if that's your long-term goal. Any time you (or hubby ) gives in, it gives her the idea that you MIGHT give in again.

We did the same thing of sleeping on the couch near Kodi's crate for the first week. Mays son was kind enough to trade off with me! For the other two that wasn't necessary, because they all sleep (in crates) in our bed room now.

Tucker slept in his crate at night, which I set on the bedside table next to me so that he could see me all night long. He did really well that way. After awhile I set the crate on the floor in the line of sight with me. Once he was about a year old and totally dependable housetraining-wise, he slept in bed with me.

She is so cute! Congrats!

We have a greyhound as well, and Maggie adores him. Her adoration has been very helpful with crate training at night...she follows his lead. We got lucky!

We are following Ginger on instagram 😃

We initially (like for 5 minutes) tried the crate in the other room when we got Perry, but he was making too much noise, I was too jetlagged to sleep on the floor by it (plus it was December and the living room was kind of cold) so we moved the crate up to the bedroom beside my side of the bed and then all I had to do was put my hand down in front of it when he'd get fussy (and he barely did that) to remind him that I was there - didn't say anything, didn't do anything else and we were good. When we get back to Kampala I moved the crate across the room (still i the bedroom) and he's been fine there. Win-win - he was comforted, but stayed in his crate and I got to sleep in my bed.
