introduction to cat: ok so far

cody bear: merely tolerating puppy

pickles: far less terrified of cody bear

potty training: excellent!

chewing: constant watch

play: she loves attacking feet and pant legs, it is the bc in her. but i have this old toy that is about 6 feet long that cody bear never liked. i just remembered it about 30 mins ago. she really digs it!

separation anxiety: off the charts. if i put her in the crate and leave she goes BONKERS. so, with all the dog training experience i know i don’t come back in till she is quiet….cuz i can’t reward her for barking.

SHE’S NEVER QUIET. this morning i waited until she nearly passed out from lack of oxygen, then went back in in that fraction of a second. she’s fine in the crate as long as i’m in the room.

i have to leave now to go volunteer. she’s just gonna have to bark it out. i’ll probably ruin her for life…

It sounds like things are going pretty well actually. That picture is so sweet!

Oliver had horrible separation anxiety when he first got here. He was my first dog, so I thought at the time he might be like that forever, but he luckily got over it pretty quick, and doesn’t seem ruined for life 🙂

Poor cb! Don’t worry, buddy, it will get better.
Everyone has such long legs!

Love the picture. Hopefully each day will get better. 🙂

They look tuckered out! Good Luck! I have never crate trained a dog before…maybe one day soon I will be doing this.

Sounds hard. But at least it doesn’t smell that way. Good for Pickles, for figuring out the potty thing so well.
