Thread: One in one out ?? Thoughts ??

    Sean, remember it is only early days with your new pup - so - please - slowly slowly!

    As newsfie has always said on this forum - 3 weeks is the telling time - and you are nowhere near that. You really have not seen what this new pup is all about in this short period of time that he has been with you. If the two are having spats and disagreements now at this early stage - then changing things totally around for Mojo will not be the way to go. The disagreements will only get worse.

    If Bronx is happy outside sleeping of a nighttime - and he is safe and can't get into any trouble - then that is what I would do.

    In the whole scheme of things - pups will live for how long ? - waiting a couple of weeks, months - really does not mean anything does it to have a happy family and pups ?

    Thanks for the advice everyone.

    I honestly dont want 2 dogs inside either. The dog hair issue is driving the wife mad so i cant push it to far. I've decided tonight that Mojo dosnt need anymore changes in his life at the moment either. Its been a big few days for him too. And yes.....its only very, very early days. I have a good feeling about Bronx....i can just see it in him....he's such a puppy compared to Mojo...full of beans he is. But i sure the next few weeks will show some diffrent things in his behaviour as he gets used to his new home.

    Mojo really appreciates the time alone. He slobbers big time when Bronx is bouncing all around him and he never slobbers normally. He's chilled out and relaxed on the lounge right now. Back to his normal self. Bronx has crashed out too.....but outside on his bed. Everyone seems settled and happy......so i'm not going to throw a spanner in the works.

    Lol...Ocean waves Huh ??? More like a bloody cyclone tearing the roof off !!!
    Somtimes i think the name chainsaw would have suited him better. !!! He's doing it right now and he's not even asleep. !!

    Toilet training becomes extra easy with a doggy door ... but i think in your case you'd need to replace the entire door with a doggy flap rather than just cutting a hole in a door lol

    Oh Mojo looks so worried in the first shot, he is so beautiful. I think you've made the best choice, how could you explain to that beautiful big old sad pug face that he's going to have to sleep outside...

    You're going to get so much attention when you're out and about with your 2 dogs, haha, you'll be loving it!!

    Nooooooooooo....not outside!!!
    I read somewhere that in Alaska when it got too too cold they would add another husky to the bed.

    No wonder the wife wants him out...

    You need a few things to keep her happy (if that's important to you)

    1. a separate place for your dog to sleep. Cuddle time is ok - after the wife has had her share but then he's got to sleep somewhere else.
    2. maybe if you did some vaccuuming occasionally. If you have no carpet - I strongly recommend a flat fluffy dry mop thing by sabco - available from Woolies (I think) and Mitre Ten (I think). It is amazing at picking up dog hair and dust. Not so good at sand but for reducing the fluff quota its fantastic. I clean mine off with a wooden scrubbing brush and occasionally put the duster bit in the wash.
    3. It's fine to have different rules for the dogs as long as you're consistent. Farmers often have this - the house dog and the farm dogs live completely separate lives.
    4. If keeping the dogs happy is more important than keeping the wife happy - you're likely to end up living outside with the dogs in a shed or tent.
