My first night with Tucker in February of 2000 was funny.
he was my first dog. I had setup a pen in my kitchen (moved my kitchen table out), had a wee wee pad, his crate, water, etc. I went to bed and within 30 minutes he was crying like a baby. I didnt know what to do. This went on for multiple hours.
Then i brought the crate into my bedroom. Well, it was down on the floor and i was up too high. He was crying again. So, I went into my den, got my TV tray and put his crate on top of it. It was the exact height as my pillow.
That was what worked. Now... months later as he got bigger and me being a late sleeper, he would start huffing and puffing and pushing on the front of the crate (pet carrier) to get out. Well, he was rocking that TV Tray to where at one point it was on two legs and about to flip over. That's when it was time to get a bigger crate and it had to go on the floor. LOL
