Maddi


Since bringing Maddi home on Fri hubby and I have had so little sleep. We are exhausted. Maddi was not sleeping through the night. She goes to bed around 9pm and wakes up about every 2hrs barking and whimpering. She pees alot and poops during the night. It's been a hard week. She needs alot of attention and always wants to have someone near her. We were so happy the other night because it was the first night she improved and started to settle into her new home. She only barked twice during the night and each time it was for less than a minute then she would go back to bed or play with her toys in her crate. Last night she was even better. She only barked once during the night and it was only a couple barks for attention. She's learning now that when she barks for attention we will not respond as we are ignoring her so she doesn't always bark for attention. She's learning and pretty quickly. No more barking non stop during the night for 40mins...woohoo!!! We are finally getting more sleep. I'm still tired throughout the day because I am not use to my new sleep schedule yet. I now wake up everyday at 6am because that's when Maddi gets up and wants food. That is sooo early for me...hahaha.

puppies are like babies - they need a lot of dedication and time! and until they are a few months old, they can't control their bladder so they go all the time everywhere but you should start training her.

she's so cute!

Right now we are training Maddi to go on pee pee pads. She goes on it all the time when she's in her crate but when we let her out to play she goes to the pad half the time and the rest of the time she pees on the floor. I can't wait to take her out to pee when she gets her 3rd shot in 2 weeks. I read online and my breeder also said we should wait till she gets her 3rd shot so that she does not get sick when she's outside but the vet said we could take her out now at just 2 shots so I don't know what to do. Derek and I just decide to wait till the 3rd shot to be safe.
