Sounds like a puppy and everything is going great. You are his new pack and he will learn that quickly.

And you are doing a great job V!!! Hang in there - I told you to get as much sleep as you could - LOL!

For the food, put it down and give him 15 mins then take away whatever is left, same again at the next meal - promise that within a day or two at the most - he will get that dish clean. Hand feeding can (not saying will but can) create a fussy/picky eater - trust me he has plenty of meat on his bones and it will NOT hurt him to miss a meal or two to get the picture

Sending you lots of positive thoughts and vibes to make it through these first few days/weeks until you get that routine down with Charlie! He sounds like a very smart boy! No doubt Buddy is looking down and laughing!

I gave Lucky his food from his breeder: Life's Abudence. He seemed to like it, it never was a problem. However, I put him on a routine. Feeding four times a day, pick up the bowl when he didn't eat. I think they need a routine. It establishes good wake/sleep/potty cycles. I think he will be used to his new pack very soon.. Lucky adjusted so quickly. Let me know if you ever have questions.. This has been my life for the last 10 months......

There are some relationships in life that change the way you see the world. If you happen upon them--you will never forget. Buddy 10-5-2003-10-30-2011: My heart dog.

It sounds like you're doing a great job so far with Charlie, and bless him - I just love his little personality already
He'll soon settle into a routine and your home, those first few early days everything is new and exciting for him, a new family, sights, smells.

Buddy will be so proud!, and when you get a minute to yourself when you're not chasing him round lol we'd love to see more pics of his adorable little smiley face
