    Default Penny has a New Name......

    Minnie Moo because she's a Minnie the moocher

    Last night I put her to bed in the kitchen and went upstairs. As soon as my head hit the pillow, it started, a low whine that steadily grew in intensity until it became a full blown howl. My instinct was to go downstairs immediately and comfort her but experience has taught me differently.... If I give in - I lose big time I knew that she was absolutely fine so we just ignored her and after about ten minutes she stopped.

    This morning I left her in the kitchen (with the doors closed) and she howled again so I just waited until she stopped and then went back in and ignored her for a while. I feel really mean doing this but I think I'm doing it right???

    She is now asleep on the sofa in the lounge all by herself so she must be feeling a bit more secure. Beauty, the next door neighbours dog was introduced to her this morning and she didn't so much as bat an eyelid so we are thrilled with her progress so far. She even did a poo in the garden for me this morning

    Here's a few pics

    Claire....She is just beautiful. I know how you feel about the whining. When I first started breaking Lily of sleeping with us, it was so hard. She would whine and cry when I put her in the crate for the night. I was so tempted to get her out. But after a week it stopped. Now she runs to the bedroom door at about 9:00 or 9:30. I open the door ad she flys across the room to her crate and flings herself in. We don't hear a peep out of her until the next morning. It is all worth it in the end.

    Penny is just a little doll baby.

    What a sweet face! Her face reminds me a lot of my Bentley's face. He has the very thin white streak between his eyes.

    Minnie Moo is very cute, and it suits her looks.

    Congratulations... I knew you would be thrilled the minute I heard she was coming to you.

    How is your back feeling? I hope it's better!
