    We brought the 65 pound dog home with us on Sunday. She did great on the 70 mile trip home. The first night DH fell asleep on the sofa, and she slept on the floor beside him. She did, however, get him up at 4:30 to go outside. :p

    She goes to the door when she wants to go outside, and she likes to follow us around or at least be where she can see what we're doing.

    Yesterday she spent four hours in her crate while we were at the grocery and two doctor appointments. Last night she was in her crate from 10:30 until 7:00 when DH got up. She didn't bark or whine all night.

    So far, so good!
