    Yes I don't encourage TM's onto the bed also for simalar reasons but they get to hot anyway when they do jump up for the odd cuddle.

    Poor little bugger just needs company, we always sleep with new pups, they settle in faster and later can be put with other dogs for mates but not as babies, if your buyer has one dog on bed why not two, then put both out later, they would of course need to get up during the night to toilet puppy but surely that is better than a crying baby and that is what it is, time to get tough when it is more mature, not yet I think.

    I think thats what will end up happening I hope as when she rang me I said I wouldn't be much help as I let mine into bed & she said that could happen yet. The reason she didn't want to bring the pup in was because the Maltese & her old dog used to sleep together in thier baskets outside & she was hoping as soon as pup was settled she could move them both outside together. The Maltese only came into the bed room when the old dog died(I think more for them than the dog) & she became depressed. I did say I was worried the Maltese would resent the puppy if it saw it as the reason she had to go back outside at night.
    She lets the dogs have access to the house of a day but thier beds where on the verandah & thats where they slept. They are a lovely country couple early retirment age & live on a lovely big block plus I could tell the Maltese was much loved & looked after pet so I really want to help her get the puppy settled as I know it's a lovely home for the longterm.

    I really couldn't have a puppy sleep in the laundry at night. I am too much of a sook.
    These 2 wern't a problem as they had each other and were in a a small pen at night and quite happy in the dog box they were moved to at about 5 weeks (along with the other 2 in the litter.

    The only other I had from a pup was about 16 years ago where I think I have already said in another thread I slept on a camp bed in the lounge room a few nights with him with my arm hanging down. I recon they settle better with the contact in this new strange and scary world we bring them to, away from what they have known.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    I do agree but some people really don't think pets should be in their beds & I think in this case her husband is very much a farmer type & think a dog should have it's own bed. But I think that since she managed to get the Maltese into the bed chances are if the pup cries again tonight thats where it will end up as well. check out pups pic at bottom of last page(1) it's a real cutey & who could not give in to those eyes, lol.
    Penny(puppy owner) is absolutly besotted with the pup & has wanted 1 since losing her old Shih Tzu x who was black also. She was worried about buying from a puppy farmer & was so releived to find me & know she can come visit the parents anytime & that I don't breed for profit. She is already talking about getting 1 for her friend but I exsplained it could be quiet a wait for me to have another to sell.

    The pup is gorgeous CD! I want I want I want!!

    We always have our new babies sleep on our bed with us when we first bring them home, this also means any other dogs also get to sleep on the bed for the first week or so too (Barney is also a big boy, not newf size but big enough, so it is not much fun LOL).

    We then start putting both dogs to bed together (they have their own room) once the new pup has got used to sleeping with the older dog.

    The only time we had whingers was when we didn't used to use this approach

    Thank you Lala I thought she was very cute myself & have been very very happy with this litter. My partner has the little cream boy in bed with him now & I can see the decision of who to keep has been made, lol. My mum is taking another boy who is just the spitting image of Jack the white with lemon markings part Shih Tzu boy who's pic I posted on that other thread. And my sister is busting to take 1 but has to finish her UNI first so I've convinced her to wait as my next litter will likely be in 18mths time right when she will finish her degree. Another is in a home with another of my older pups(well dog now) as a companion for a termanly ill older lady & when she passes the dog will stay with her daughter who is already living & caring for her mum & has the other dog I breed.

    I tried one night of puppy in laundry in crate - and she screamed the whole time. So I put her in a cut down cardboard moving box, lined with towels, next to my bed on the floor - my bed is almost on the floor anyway. And I attached a lead to her collar and put it under me and attached it to the other side of my bed so she couldn't go anywhere without waking me up, and then I set alarm for 2am and 4am to take her outside for pee. Did this for about two weeks, all good no crying, no accidents and then she started sleeping through eg I was able to set alarm for later and later.

    Mostly the experienced puppy raisers I know, start with puppy in a crate next to their bed, sometimes raised up so they're practically breathing on each other, and then as the dog matures and gets less anxious about being separated from it's mother, the crate can be migrated out the door into the next room and then to where ever they want the dog to be at night. Eg each night the crate is moved 10cm in the direction they want the puppy to be...
