Sleeping Arrangement for NEW PUPPY
Yes, soon he will be here!! But I need to be prepared, and so need the advice of you TWO HAV OWNERS!
Biscuit currently sleeps in a big wicker crate in the large family room kitchen right below the master bedroom. My husband cannot have an animal in the BR for health reasons. Period. Not even a puppy in a crate. We can hear the slightest puppy whimper, by the way, right through the floor. Biscuit doesn't make a peep all night.
So my thinking is, to put the puppy (who will be about 14 wks, same age as Biscuit was ) in his own little crate near Biscuit's in the family room.
We were SO LUCKY with Biscuit in that he slept through EIGHT STRAIGHT HOURS in the crate from the FIRST NIGHT. May lightening strike us twice! LOL
Anyway, do you think this will work? Or will they disrupt each other? Putting the puppy in a different room seems too lonely and cruel.
I could sleep in another BR with the puppy in a crate, but really don't want to set that precedent at all, of sleeping with the puppy.
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Of course, I am asking the breeder as well. Thank you!
Puppy update w/pix to follow as soon as possible.
HAV A GREAT DAY ! ~~AMY & BISCUIT~~
and HEATH-Y, TOO !
