Ruff first night. I was too much to ask to have the pup sleep in the kennel in a new house. Between being home sick at 8 weeks and new to the crate (these babies had quit the set up). We will need to work the crate into the daily routine or no one will get any sleep.

So sorry to hear Reese's first night was a rough one. I hope today is better for you all and you're able to get some sleep tonight.

Thanks.. Plan to acclimate him to the kennel in the daytime (to avoid the sleep loss), and pen him in the kitchen and have someone sleep ont eh nearby couch (puppy watch) until he adjusts.

I didn't know a puppy could cry so long (without being in pain) without wearing down and passing out. He is very sweet and lovable cuddler, but clearly has a stuborn side (more so than GR pups I've owned) which leads me to believe the kennel training will take a bit longer than previously experienced, but we will get there.. Hopefully without too much lost sleep

What a difference a few hours makes... Yes he is sleeping in the kennel with the door open, in a very uncomfortable looking position!

He looks soooo soft... Is his coat really soft? I just want to reach through the picture and rub that plump belly! How does Bogey feel about him? Any jealousy going on?

His coat is as soft as it looks! He is a living, cuddling stuffed teddy bear. Bogey is doing great with him other than being a little rough when playing at times, but Reese's size will soon make that a non-issue, and Reese is quick to let him know when he has had enough. Bogey laid with him by choice when he was crying last night, and is happy to share toys and playing with them together. Bogey pouts a bit over the attention sharing and not being the baby anymore, but very minor.

Video of them playing.

5 days home and Reese is doing very well... The Kennel is still a bit of an issue when he is not tired. thankfully the wife works at home so he's not in there much other than bed time.

He is already pushing his bowl around barking at you if you happen to forget his meals more than 20-30 minutes. Problem is we soak his kibble before feeding him so he sits and barks at the bowl while it is softening out of reach (cute yet annoying).

We put Bogey in the kennel while Reese eats his food in peace. Once Reese is done eating he takes just as much excitement in going over to the kennel and barking at Bogey.. "Ha Ha, Your locked up and I'm out here"!

All the neighbors are volunteering to puppy sit whenever we need (or not). He is such a calm but chatty boy. He loeves to be carried around (thats not going to last long), and snuggle until someone over heats.

First bath started out with him very interested in the tub and the water, until I put him in.. Then he freaked out trying to climb out. Those big puppy paws have cat like sharp claws. Within a few minutes of just splashing water he got over the I'm going to drown in 8 inches of water, and began to calm down.. I won't say enjoy it, but he did well after that. Bogey was nearby to say Ha Ha... Your getting a ba-ath!

Will get some better quality pictures up this weekend. It's amazing how many lower light pictures result in a dog with no face.. when he's outside at night and only a few feet away facing you, you see a faceless body.
