Welcome to my little corner of blogland! This is the only sane spot I can come in my crazy life! :) Here I share my sometimes funny sometimes NOT-day to day insanity I call my life, along with my sweet wooly hubby & all our boys :)

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; there is where they should be.
Now put foundations under them.

New kid in town

6 wks old, 1/2 beagle, 1/2 red heeler/australian cattle dog. The owner was going to kill them and someone rescued them and they nursed with her german shepherd mom :) That mom nursed her 5 and these 7. Good mommy doggie.

His name is Cooper :) I am open to ANY and ALL crate training or potty training advice. I didnt do well at all with the male poodle we had and I dont want to get attached again and have to give it up.

My puddy tats. My Rowdyboy has been missing over 2 wks now :( See the cool cat house I scored on someone's curb :)

Arent I sweet? ANd I am not cockeyed in real life. Or dirty, thats my reddish color.

Cute pup!! His name fits. I have no ideas for potty training as I just cleaned up puppy poop myself! Let me know if you get any good tips.
I just filled out the slips for the draw tomorrow and you signed up for the binder, but not the big draw on the main blog. You can do both and win on both blogs. Just want you to know.

your puppy is SOOO cute!!! i am not much of an expert, but when we got our puppy we crate trained him. He stayed in his crate (den) most of the day and all night. they like to have *just enough* room. don't give him too much space. he will learn to keep his den clean and eventually the entire home. choose a spot outside for his potty area and take him their often. give him a treat for spending time their, then only when he pottys, then eventually not at all. i will ask dh for the website where he learned all this.

Cooper is adorable! Just put him in the crate whenever you are not around. If you see him drink or eat then put him out straight away and praise him alot when he goes to the RR outside.
