    Well she has slept through for 5 nights in a row for 9 hours! Is this a miracle, or is she just finding her paws? Toiletting seems to be going very well too and I don't think I needed puppy pads as she is doing everything out in the garden.

    Nelly is settling into a little routine now and we are looking forward to being able to take her for walkies a week after her 2nd jab.

    I am slowly changing her food over from Pedigree Bum (as the vet calls it) to Natures Diet with a bit of Royal Canin mixed in.

    aw she's being good! Mika was like that at night too he wouldn't make a peep. My guess is its because he was crate trained at the breeders anyway so he was used to it at night. We had something of his mummy's scent on it and left it in there a couple of nights and he was ever so good. My mum and i on the first night we had him both needed to go to the loo at night and we forgot about our new addition and we were like 'oh oh...what did we do' but no not a peep :) The only time he did cry overnight was for 10 minutes and it was on the day i had an accident. My dad put him down at night and i was in bed early and all i could hear was Mika and i was like worried because he never cried at night before, i text my sister going 'mika's crying, why?!' I think he was upset everyone was going to bed way too early lol!

    My guess is Nelly was trained by the breeder to behave too :)

    She's such a good puppy! Great photos, your daughters (I assume) obviously adore her!

    Yes, they are my daughters. Phoebe is 9 and Casey is 10. Phoebe is definitely more patient with Nelly. Casey just wants to be on MSN!

    The pups weren't crate trained at the breeders, but they were put outside on the grass regularly.

    I started mixing a bit of Natures Diet in straight away and am slowly adding more Natures Diet and less Pedigree. I have to say Pedigree Chum really stinks! :eek: All number 2s are looking fine, so hopefully we will have no problems when she is on the new food altogether.
