I'm so happy for you! You will LOVE your Starborn pup! I can't wait to see what you choose as your new name, [email protected]
@nese_Mommy_Wannabe8! (That is the one and only time I will be typing out your current name - tee hee!)
When I search for things in the forum, I use regular Google, NOT the forum's search engine. I just put this into Google ... "upstairs" "downstairs" "pens" "Havanese forum" ... and I got this thread
Shama's 2x6-foot Pupperton
pen is tucked under our kitchen island. Today, while I was at the dining room table having my afternoon office hours (I am currently teaching high school French at a distance due to COVID), she was crying at me to let her out. This is because she'd slept the ENTIRE morning after taking a long walk in a wooded county park yesterday and she was finally restless. She didn't end up crying long because I finished up then opened the door (when she wasn't crying!) Usually she's fine being penned as part of our routine when we are both teaching. If she's loose, she is more likely to bark. Normally, when we're teaching at our jobs which are two hours apart, an hour each direction from our house, she's alone from 6 AM to 4 PM except when our dog caregiver comes over around 11.
That whole paragraph was to let you know about Shama's main pen. Downstairs, we only have the "ancient" metal crate that my minpin used when I was a kid. We would occasionally put Shama in that pen during the witching hour when she would bite us as a puppy (before we discovered pigs' ears). As I recall, however, we didn't have Shama downstairs much when she was really little and not yet housetrained, but maybe we did ... Our main TV is down there, but we also have a TV in the living room which is next to the dining room and kitchen (and therefore Shama's pen) in an open floor plan.
We only ever had
in her ex pen. When she stopped using it, we put it in the garage.
Keep the questions coming, and please take lots of pictures of your baby when you get him!
