Having a puppy in the house make for a certain loss of sleep. Well, for the first few days, anyway.
We have successfully crate trained Benson. He loves his crate. The first night he pooped in it, but he has maintained a clean crate ever since then (two more nights).
He is walking with me for two miles a day, not on a leash yet. I will get there. He is still discovering the neighborhood and we walk at 5:30 am, so that is OK. He WILL get leash training very soon.
DD2 came over today to meet Benson. DD3 was "babysitting" him for the day while I was at work. He is not going to be an inside dog, but since we do not yet have a fenced area for him . . . someone needs to keep on top of his bodily elimination schedule, therefore the need for "eyes on" during the day.
But I think both DD2 and I will get a good night's sleep tonight.
