    She is adorable!!! I used to let my puppy sit in my lap all the time; now I have a 3.5 year old, 60 lb Boxer-mix who loves to sit in his mama's lap!

    How precious! Did she just leave the litter? One trick is to wrap an old-fashioned hot water bottle in a towel along with an old-fashioned ticking clock. It helps them if they miss the warmth of other puppies and the ticking through the bath towel sounds like a heart beat. It's a trick our vet told us decades ago.

    Someone told me about the clock, but now I am going to find something warm. She cries and cries in her crate, but sleeps blissfully on my lap. Well, I am tired, too, and would like to go to bed! Which means she has to go into the crate soon!

    Such a sweetie.
    Such a sweetie!

    Not sure this is good advice.

    We got our 2nd puppy when she was still with her litter. She cried like crazy. On her first night with us, I slept on the sofa with her. She did great.

    Night #2 she went in her kennel and did fine after a few minutes. She had a blanket and a stuffed panda bear.

    Don't get her from the crate every time she cries. then she knows what she has to do to get out of the crate...cry. She will get used to it.

    If she hasn't been crated, she might cry just because.... until she gets used to it. She is such a cutie pie, I'd probably sit up all night with her even though I know the crate is the best place.

    Do NOT use an electric heating pad. That would be dangerous as she can chew and get hurt. Maybe a thermos wrapped well in a large towel if you had one versus the old-fashioned hot water container.

    I have been mean and left her in her crate the whole night.

    See, she was sleeping and I ran to Walmart to get a few things and put her in the crate. She cried the whole time I was gone. I got home, took her out, and she slept on my lap. I then put her back in to go to sleep. She cried ALL NIGHT.
    I feel bad, but she has to get used to it. We are up already. Or I should say I am- she is sleeping on my lap again after going out to go potty.

    She is beautiful. What is her name? How many weeks old? She is certainly a good healthy size!

    What a lovely dog, thanks for the picture so quickly! I'm sure you'll have many fun times ahead & take tons of pictures now because before you know it, the puppy days are over. (Dogs are considered adults when they're 1 yr old, that's what my vet confirmed).

    I wonder why she's crying so much. I can honestly say that my dog never cried as a puppy, not during the day or middle of the night. I'm secretly thankful to my breeder for that because she must have gotten him used to being away from his mother before I got him at 8 wks old.

    She looks JUST like my old doggie, Buffy. She was a white Malamute/Shepard mix.

    It was a long time ago that she was a baby, but she cried at night just like your Kyah. She just needs time. It's heartbreaking to listen to, but you have to be consistent.

    Have you started walking her yet? Huskies are really high-energy dogs and needs lots of exercise. Walking or playing outside can tire her out so she sleeps better in her crate.

    We went for a walk earlier and she has been sleeping blissfully in her crate for a few hours now.

    Eating the rug

    She is dragging the rug in the entry to the living room and flailing it about. She keeps getting her teeth tangled in it. I suppose I should be happy with this since she is not crying or eating my furniture.

    Just doing what puppies do. :)
    I think somewhere here you're supposed to train her to not do that...I'm a doggie novice as well. :haha:
