Albey is Treacle's pup and left us yesterday to start his life with Heather's family and we had an update yesterday to let me know that they got home safely. Tonight is an update on how Albey got on with his first night away from his birth family.
Mum slept downstairs with Albey last night, they didn't have the best nights sleep but Albey was comforted by her presence when he woke up and he would stop crying and go back to sleep when she put her hand near his crate.
No accidents so far, in fact we think he even asked to go out for a wee when he woke up this evening! He seems to be getting into a routine he understands - he's eating, drinking, weeing, pooping, playing, sleeping and being cute!
It's been a really hot day here and he spent a lot of time laid out in the shade in the living room.
Smudge decided to start 'talking' to us again today, she was too annoyed with us yesterday to give us any attention with a 'How dare to bring that furry thing indoors' attitude - heehee!
He's going to visit the vets tomorrow, just to say 'Hello', a friendly association.
I've attached some photos from today, I took the one with Albey on the sofa just now.
He's just woken up so I'm going to go play with him now 😊
That must be the hardest thing for a pup is the first few days separated from their birth pack and when they leave it is the the one thing that I worry about the most. Always glad when the option of being with the pup at night is taken, until the pup is settled in. Gently weaning them to be happy in their own company is so important to lessen the chances of having an adult dog with separation anxiety issues. Really good to know that Beth (Heather's Mum) was their to comfort him in the night, as he learns that he is part of their family now. Thanks Heather for the photos and update.
