New member and new puppy!

Hi Everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself this morning. My name is Shelly and I just picked up my new 10 week old puppy last night! He's so adorable, he looks like a little muppet! He's a black and white parti. Poor little thing is nameless yet. I'm leaning towards Oliver/Ollie, but hubby is not convinced.

We had a bit of a rough night, he doesn't want to be alone...at all. Can't blame the little guy. The other thing I'm baffled by is that he is a big time poop eater! Just poops and happily turns around to greedily gobbles it up! Ewww! I've managed to stop him except for the first time when he took me by surprise! I'm going to get pinapple this afternoon as I saw from an earlier thread. I hope it works. I love puppy kisses, but um...ick.

I promise to post pictures later. We're selling our house and I have a showing this afternoon. I'm in no way ready as all I want to do is play with the puppy! So for now it's off the computer and rush around picking up!

I'm so happy to be here, I've been lurking for a week now and just got my account approved so I could post and see all the adorable October photos and tummy shots!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Shelly

Welcome Shelly and noname! So glad to have you on the forum. You will find a lot of information about sleeping through the night in previous threads, but here is a suggestion for you. I kept Brady in his crate on a table next to me in bed. It worked. I started this a few days after he came home and he slept through the night as soon as I started it. He had to be able to see me and he was just fine. As for the poopeating, you seem to be on the right track with that. Brady never goes for his own poop, he just like deer poop, rabit poop, or whatever other poop he can find outside. Yuck!! Don't forget those pictures later!!

Shelly and little guy! What a cutie he is! I know what you mean about the poop eating...so gross. At least you're in good company, many of us have havs who eat it...be it their own or others

Glad you've joined us!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, you guys! It makes me feel better to know my hav is not the only poo eater!

I'm dying to just sit on here and chat, but my house is not in showing condition and I only have an hour and a half! Oh well, it will be what it is, I guess!

Karen, I did what you said last night...put his crate on a little stand by the bed so he could see me. He would sleep for a while and then wake up and cry. To be fair, both times he woke up, I took him to the wee wee pad and he went straight away, so he probably had good reason for waking up. Both times though, he woke up WIDE AWAKE and wanting to play. I caved and played with him a bit which I'm sure is a no no, but I couldn't resist. I'll go look for the sleeping through the night thread this afternoon!

Can't wait to come back later and show pictures and chat!

Wishing you all a joyful day!
Shelly
