woow now that i've read all your posts i felt really sorry for my puppies.
we didnot plan to get ares so when he came to us me and my husband had to go to work everyday for really long hours.
(from 8:30 to 19:00) because it was chrismass time..
The first day ares came home neither me nor my husband could get a day off work so we left ares in a room and sheena (rottie) in the other room.
My husband went home around 12:00 for feeding and potty and heard our neighbors complaining about sheena, they told him that sheena didnt even stopped crying for 1 min.
when he got into the house he realised that it wasnt sheena it was ares
he kept crying until he was put in the same room with sheena
we cleared the room, put some newspapers, put their bowl of water and a toy that sheena loved playing with and a blanket.
(poor ares is always cold he never sleeps without his blanket)
the next day they were fine
sometimes little accidents happened like they turned the bowl upside down wondering what was beneath it and left without water for all afternoon, ares accidentally pooped over the place etc. :wink:
we dont have puppy sitters here in turkey and we really work for long hours so your dogs are really really lucky
