    i am sorry for your Geisha, and for all the sorry dogs that need so much more than the pampered from birth poochies.. i think the same, i know it.. our two cats are also rescues, and they often make pitiful noises when they sleep, and need a snuggle, i can only think they have bad dreams, still. they were given a very poor start in life, one of them has a deformed leg from that start.

    sad, but true..

    thankyou Malinois, but really, the only alternative was the pound, and that's no alternative at all.

    Nelson has finally given in, and is curled up at my feet, under my desk, and he is at least dozing. i don't dare move. he whimpers every so often.

    If he continues to be "edgy"...a trip to the vet might be good...they can possibly give him something to relax until he settles in

    Hi & welcome..

    aww bless you for taking a stray in & for taking care of him

    I hope he soon feels comfy enough to get into a relaxing sleep, poor boy sounds like he's scared to be left alone, i'm sure over time with your love & kindness he will get back to being trustworthy & feeling safe again .

    he hasn't slept much, but he is curled up under my desk again. it is his first day here after all i guess, i will give him a few days at least to settle in a bit more before i worry. i've never seen a dog do that before tho, fall asleep standing up.

    poor wee beastie is doing it again this morning, standing next to my chair and falling asleep standing up! he had at least some of an active night from the evidence.. pee and poop in places pee and poop shouldn't be, and his tiny kong has it's inside chewed down to the rim..

    we have to work on house training it seems! any helpful hints please? he might have to be a garage dog in the night for a while.. i usually have to be up at least once in the night myself, and i took him outside when i was awake..

    i just cleaned it all up this morning, with his big eyes watching every move, didn't scold him or anything, figured it was a bit late for anything like that... could a tiny little doggie like him be trained to a litter box? or will he just lift his leg and pee all over regardless? will neutering him help stop the territorial style peeing on everything in sight? he is not a puppy anymore, but the vet could give no clues on age apart from not a pup, not old, so would this behaviour be already ingrained?

    i know so little about dogs...

    Nelson is finally allowing himself to sleep - has curled up under my desk and given in to that overpowering urge to sleep. (cute pic in album) i am very pleased to see this. i can even go get a drink for myself and come back to see him still sleeping, if i'm quick. he's so cute. have i mentioned he is smaller than our cats? lol...
