So I got a puppy about 2 and 1/2 weeks ago. And he is the cutest little thing; and that's saying something since I'm normally a cat person! His name is Charlie which is short for Charcoal. The reason why his name is charcoal is because he has short black fur with a very small white dot on his chest. He's 8 and 1/2 weeks old, and he's Labrador, Australian Shepard mix with a small percentage of Pit-Bull in his blood.
He very quickly caught onto his puppy potty training pads, but he is still a baby who is still learning to make it to his potty pad and go on his pad... and not chew it up/play/wrestle/carry it around the house as if its some kind of trophy. And lets not forget the teething... The Little Stinker. Before yesterday evening/night, Charlie has been sleeping in the same room as my mom and I (we share both a room and a bed because we are still in the process of unpacking into our new house.) and sometimes we even let him sleep on the bed. But when after I watched some puppy/dog training videos, I decided that letting the puppy sleep in his own bed was a good idea. I don't want Charlie to be sleeping on my bed when he's fully grown, that wouldn't very comfortable for me or Charlie. Not enough bed space. So when the time came for us to turn in for the night. He did that thing that all puppies do. He cried. Oh lord did he cry! Normally, I wouldn't have any problems with kids and animals crying, because I've had to deal with 'singing' cats at 3 o'clock in the morning. I also have a very autistic niece who cries/screams whenever she gets frustrated/angry, which is understandable considering the fact that she has some difficulty getting people to understand her. But Charlie? Oh my lord... He not only cried he practically howled. And when I looked at the clock and saw that it was 2:45 in the morning... I caved. Because I could tell that he wasn't going to stop I definately wasn't going to get any sleep at the rate that he was going. So picked him up brought him to bed and let him sleep on the foot where he likes to sleep. So, like I said before... Little Stinker. He's a cutie! But a Stinker.
