Houston - we have lift off

Well. He is home. I really like the breeder. She gave me a sheet of all her dogs from all litters and their health tests. Some only had CERF because they are pets.

Well, he threw up a little on the way home. Then him and my son slept the whole way home. 2 hours by myself in the car. Boring......

Anyway, he is doing good. He uses the pee pads. In fact, he cried to get off my lap to go down and pee on it. That is good.

Bad part is he cries and cries and cries when I put him in the crate. I thought OH my goodness what did I get into. But then I set up his xpen and put him in there and he was fine. So, we will see.

I am nervous, excited and sad. Just thinking our little guy is missing out on the joy of having a new puppy. COL. Stinks. Plus, I think I got the bug. I feel I am going to get sick any minute and ache all over. Double yuck.

Any advise? I am putting his crate by my sons bed. Hope it works. I am very very nervous. Were you guys this way when you got yours? It has been 17 years since I had a puppy.... I knew it was a lot of work and did all my research but I cannot believe how nervous I am.

Rita, Congrats on Houston!! I am sure that although you are not feeling well, that he will help you feel better! Mine cried for 3-4 days in the crate but they finally got used to it and now are fine. It is just a bit of adjustment for them leaving their moms & litter mates. He will be fine in a few days!

Rita - finally our little baby is home!!!
Don't worry, everything will fall into place and everyone will be fine, you'll see. First and foremost, take care of your cold/flu. Take some meds, drink lots of liquids and make some chicken soup, it's good for the soul and the flu.

Best,

-Julia

Thanks guys. Still feeling yucky. Last night went well. He would not stay with my son or should I say my son said he made too much noise. Learning experience. I said, now you know why kids shouldn't have babies.

So, I ended up sleeping on the floor in the living room with him in his kennel. So proud that I did that. POB pat on back. He sleep until 1 Am and then wanted out. He peed and pooped on his pad. Then I stuck him right back in. He slept until 7.

Congratulations on having him home! I really hope you feel better soon though. I haven't had a puppy in years either and mine is coming home next Friday...so I am starting to get a little nervous too! lol

Hopefully, little Houston will adjust very quickly!

Love,
Kara

Hey Kara. Glad I am not the only one nervous. They are so small and it is like wow I hope he is OK. Then again I used to check on my human kids all the time when they were sleeping. Crazy lady I guess.

Lynn is right to tire him out. Then he sleeps in his kennel. The only problem is that his favorite toy is a squeeky ball. Annoying when you feel yucky. So, I am going to try to put myself together and go to the store and get another ball (if not today then tomorrow). I could handle jingles more than squeeks.

LOL! I didn't even think about how annoying the "squeeky" toys could be! I bought her some cute little chickens, one named Henrietta that "squeeks" and one that is named Earl that "farts".......hehe! What was I THINKING!!!!! lol

love,
Kara
