    Oh I so remember those eary weeks and getting up at 5 in the morning to mop the kitchen floor plus let the pup out etc: Keep watch on them in case they get something they shouldn't. Don't worry it does pass and you will look back on it all and laugh that such a small bundle of fluff can cause all this fuss. I bet you are saying "I'm never having a puppy again " enjoy

    Exactly what my mum said to me after our 1st dog who I was too young to remember as a pup. She finally agreed to getting a pup as she wanted a 2nd dog but didn't think our dog would put up with an older one. So my 21st birthday present was a pup sadly we lost him in July so to comfort me my mum promised me another pup which I made sure she kept to so now I have a Boarder Terrier pup. It does get easyer as the pup grows up.

    Hi and welcome. I remember those first few weeks very well. It is 'all hands on deck' and your life revolves around the puppy for a while. However, although it seems at the time that the manic puppy phase will go on forever it is surprising how quickly it passes, given you several months of relative peace before the 'Kevin phase' strikes!:eek:
