Hi, Peanut is now 12 weeks old and sleeps in our bed or the crate in our bedroom, she takes herself off to bed around 10pm. Sometimes sheíll wake when weíre getting in bed and want to join us with Lilly our 10 year old cocker, as she canít get on the bed she puts her paw up. The paw up is used for getting her down the stairs too, If I bend and say Ďupí she jumps on my right shoulder, she taught me that trick!
We get a longer sleep if she sleeps in the crate and no risk of her having an accident on our bed so weíre Encouraging the crate for now. I wonít miss her toe nails thatís for sure!

Peanut sounds adorable! We are doing much better now, Bonny takes herself off to her bed when I go up and settles until around 5.30- 6am when she asks to go out. If I want a bit of a longer lie in I let her on the bed and she snuggles down for another hour or so. During the day she sleeps on the sofa.

House training has been great- until the torrential rain started a  couple of days ago, she's not too keen on rain so we had a couple of accidents  :005: now that the weather has picked up she's back to normal  :lol:

Weíre having the same rain related accidents, but weíve not had torrential rain. Peanut jumps into puddles, shallow streams eagerly yet a mm of rain and she acts like she mustnít get her Jimmy Chooís damaged!

Bonny sounds amazing, she goes back to sleep in the morning and letís you have another hour or so of sleep!?!  I need the training manual youíre using!  :lol2:

Haha! That manual is called 'Make it up as you go along and hope for the best' :005:. Unfortunately Bonny has no worries about her Jimmy's Choos, she loves rolling around in anything wet, she just won't pee in the rain unless I'm out with her holding an umbrella  like a lady in waiting for the Queen   :lol:

 :005: That made me laugh, we have the patio outside the back door under cover, then it’s grass. We have had a couple of down pours today and madam has said no way am I going out to pee on the grass   >:D

I wanted to protect a light coloured large rug so I decided to hide kibble in it instead of buying/making one of those waffle mats. My thinking was that dogs donít wee where they eat...... my thinking was wrong  >:D
