Oh My Goodness, she is a brat

And I say that with love and affection. It's been so long since I had a puppy I have forgotten that they are brats lol. Ruby Roo is horrible for chewing kids toys despite the fact that she has loads of chew toys of her own that she can destroy. Kids are learning to pick up toys but often bot quick enough, than 1 of teh kids (usually my own) will chase her to get the toy which she then thinks is a HUGE game so they run after each other, until one of them tires out...I have told the kids to NOT chase her becuase then it becomes fun for her. My own kid is the worst, probably because she is always the one leaving her toys everywhere.

She was doing so great with housetraining and I was pretty sure that she was close, but she has peed on the floor 3x since Saturday evening, not a big puddle not even a huge deal, but she did so well before what happened?

She has only been here 2 weeks (tomorrow) so considering that she HAS done very well. She will only sleep if she has a warm body to lean against but sleeps so deep that you can walk away when she is asleep. She HATES her kennel and still cries all night long in it, but until she is reliable with not going in the house, she must stay in it when I cannot watch her. It's been that way every night since she came, and nobody acknowledges her yelps and cries while she is in there, nor do we ever remove her until she quiets down, but yet she still cries and carries on ALL.NIGHT.LONG. No exaggeration. If I coudl trust her NOT to mess on my bed, I would take her to bed with me in an nano second.

She has made friends with Aunts, 7.5 week old golden and the 2 of them can play and rough house for a good while, then she comes home and crashes for ages. She was caught by their cat and wasn't impressed when Kitty gave her a swat nails and all, she let her feelings be known by some very loud yelling and rolling around on teh floor, I thought she was really badly hurt, but no she is a drama queen.

All things considered she is a great girl and I wouldn't trade her for anything, some of the puppy behaviours I would but not her.

Wrigley eats everything - so I feel your pain. Honestly, this week alone while I scooped his poo from the yard I found many crayons, stuffing from the bed he decided to eat, and parts of a pacifier that one of my (babysitting) kids decided to give him when I wasn't looking that way. Not to mention that if I don't properly latch the pantry door, he can help himself to my trash and gets out extras for my other two that can't reach.

I can't remember what size Ruby Roo is - toy, mini, or standard? Hang in there with the crate training at night. My little Crestie girl Torie could scream like no ones business at night. I finally had to take her down in the basement and I used a very lightweight blanket (baby blanket) that I threw over it so that it would make it more den like. Eventually she did stop and now she goes right in to her crate at night as soon as I say kennel. But boy -those learning nights were rough. (My Torie is a little dog - sometimes they seem to have wills of steal)
