Charlie sounds adorable. Have you tried covering the crate completely. That's what my trainer told me to do when Loki barked in his crate & it worked right away. I use towels so that here are little gaps to let fresh air in. He now dashes into his crate at bedtime & falls asleep straight away. I don't use the crate during the day or the evening, just overnight. I use a puppy playpen if I am out of the house, otherwise he is with me. You will survive .....it just doesn't feel like it right now lol. Loki is four months old & I still occasionally have moments when I feel like that. But he gets better everyday & I can see how great it will be when he is older.

Charlie

I agree with Dwyllis about putting a sheet or towels on top, back and sides of crate-we left the door area uncovered. It creates a DEN feeling-dogs are very comfortable in a den!!

His crate is covered with dark blue very light bed sheet, he eats his food there and threats but still is not happy to be locked there especially at day time.
He barks his head off every time I have his food bowl in my hands to get his food as soon as possible then eats 1/2 of it and runs back to play.


Charlie's life motto is "never give up", no matter what mom does to distract you never give up.

Thanks so much for sharing your first days with Charlie with us. He is adorable. Those of us waiting for or looking for puppies get to live vicariously through you until we are able to bring home our own furry friends

So that's a bully stick-I need to try those for Tucker and Tonka.
I love hearing about and seeing Charlie-what a doll face!
I bet Buddy is smiling ear-to-ear, as he watches with Smooch and Snobear from the Rainbow Bridge!!

Thank you for also taking the time to share your adventures with gorgeous Charlie. Goldens are great healers. He seems to be doing his job very well by entertaining you and thanks to your generosity healing and entertaining others around the world too.

You have brought back my own memories of those intense puppy days. I remember Hudson eating my diary and losing all of my work records up to the date of when we go him. I remember Tia being tangled up my my blinds and biting me with those sharp puppy teeth. The correcting dust buster and smell of Euchalyptus oil became by best friends. Today as I look at my majestic golden buddies there is not a hint of a single antic that they put me through. I am so glad that you are taking lots of photos because the time does pass by so quickly and it is amazing how quickly we forget.

Thank you for your support as we go through this rough time with Tia's cancer diagnosis. It really is heart warming.
