Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year's.
My posting may be even more sporadic, as we have added a new addition to our household:
It is this sweet little Malti-Poo puppy! We named her Bailey Lulubelle, but we are just calling her Lulu, as it seems to fit her.
I must be crazy, as I am 50 years old and have never, ever had a dog and am starting out with a little puppy! Plus we have decided to litter box train her, as where we live we have no grass to speak of; our yard is rock, dirt and stickers. I am feeling so bad about keeping her caged up, but I know it is what we have to do until she figures out what to do. Today we set up a puppy playpen area for her so at least she has a little bit more room. The tile floor that is exposed is covered with pee pee pads, and we are hoping she gets the hang of it. Once she figures out that it is okay to go on the pads, we want to transition her to a box.
Any words of encouragement, advice or comfort would be greatly appreciated :)
