if someone will be there mid day - 4 hours is not that bad for a 15 month old.
We don't crate Rose and as of today she is alone in the hallway for 2 hours. Luckily we got industrial rugs that we can just take outside, spray and run the pressure washer thru it but still save the hard wood floors. Hopefully by the time winter comes we'll do much better.

11 weeks today. - she is still in that two hour (if I am lucky ) range. She will never be home alone more than three hours down the road no matter her age.

He is my life, as sad as that may sound...
Not jumping on you at all, we all got our own lives to sort out as well. And as a fellow student, I definitely know how you feel. Though my schedule is much more forgiving and Maverick will only be alone for about 2.5hrs tops.

That's good. And I'm happy to report- no accidents today! The dog sitter came by at lunch and took him for a walk and played fetch. And he got back to his normally feeding routine. I can't wait until January! I don't like not being the one who sees him at lunch!!! I'm a jealous Mama..

Today Rose was alone for two and a half hours intervals until daughter came home from school. No ACCIDENTS! During the excitement of us being home and getting dinner going, not knowing who took her out and when we had two oopsies. Darn, she can sit and whoa, lay down, shake hands, she even whoas for two treats on each paw but when she has to go she GOES!

Accidents happen, I just was so shocked because he hasn't had an accident in about five months or maybe longer!
