What a sweet face! See, that's why babies and puppies are so adorable, that's so you don't put them in a box with "FREE" on the side and leave them on your porch. Hehe.

Oi, so cute!!!!! Be careful with how you spoil him or he'll whine like that his whole life... my dad's dog is evidence of that. (but to be fair, she sleeps through the night)

He's getting on my nerves too much to spoil! Lol! I'm doing what I can to not treat him like a baby. I'm just going to let him cry tonight if he starts. He seems to get what's going on now and is quiet and peaceful in the laundry room.

Sooo cute.. and yes, yes they are

If they're used to being around another dog, try putting a clock that ticks in with him, and a stuffed animal to snuggle up with or a sweatshirt that smells like you. The ticking imitates the beating of a heart and usually helps with puppies with the transition.

We ended up putting the dog's kennel in our room because of all the whining, but we have the room for it As long as he doesn't have to go out, ignore the whining or else you establish "me whining = getting out". HOWEVER, if he needs to go out, definitely take him - since a 10 week old puppy shouldn't be expected to hold it all night! (A puppy can only be expected to hold it their age in months + 1 hour).

Hahaha sorry... I would've warned you but you seemed so in love, hahaha. Yeah, puppies are like toddler with sharp teeth. Are y'all crate training? We've done that with all our dogs. They're den-creatures so they like having little hidey-holes.

My husband spoiled Jocelyn when we got her. She had a full-blown panic attack the first night we tried the crate. I've never heard a dog make noises like that. So Ian gave in. I'd come to bed and she'd be sleeping with him in-between his ankles with her head propped up on his foot. Eventually, we transitioned her to a crate, which she still loves.

LOL, I remember those days. When I was still living with my parents they bought a Cocker Spaniel puppy. She would cry all night and sounded just like Lady in Lady and the Tramp! Luckily, she grew out of it pretty quickly. Hopefully your puppy will to. And yes, he couldn't be cuter!!

HA YOU ARE TOO FUNNY!!!! I believe puppies are extremely harder than infants. My daughter has been begging for a puppy but i told her she had to wait another year. There is no way I can handle moving into a new home/ a newborn/ a seven year old and a puppy. I would hurt someone!!!!!

I know its hard but hopefully he will calm down soon. As tired as I have been, I completely feel for you.

The third night was better than the first two. He's getting the hang of life in our house. I adore him. He's so tiny and I'm feeling all maternal towards him. He doesn't get away with too much though!

Argh, the poor baby has a cough. I'm pretty sure he has kennel cough. He's stressing me out! He goes to the vet on Saturday.

The poor wee baby! My boy had this, twice. He's been vaccinated for it, of course, but the vaccine only covers a few strains, and there are many out there. It's good that you're taking him to the vet, because it can turn into pneumonia if it gets bad.

Your vet will probably prescribe a cough suppressant. If it doesn't seem to be helping, try mixing a little bit of slippery elm powder (it comes in pills in the supplement aisle at the drugstore) with some honey and have him lick that down. Seems to soothe the throat.

Let us know how he's doing!

Poor little guy! Once our black lab got pharyngitis. I wasn't aware dogs could get that! She would cough whenever she would run. After some antibiotics it slowly went away.

Thanks! I'll do that if meds don't help. He's so tiny and his cough makes me sad.
