I have a 9wk old pup right now too. I was able to be with her the entire first week I got her because my employers allowed me to bring her to work with me (I'm a nanny). However they are uncomfortable with me bringing her every day so now I'm only going to be bringing her 2-3x a week (I do have weekends off) for the next 2-3 weeks until I move/get a new job.
Anyways, I'm really glad you posted this because today is her first day home by herself. I put her in the bathroom with some puppy pads, her food/water a bunch of toys (including a nylabone & stuffed kong) because there was just no way I could leave her in her crate all day. I played with her for about 45min before I left for work & my bf did the same (he doesn't have to leave for work until 9:50am or 10:45 depending on the day; I leave @7:15am) but it has seriously been breaking my heart just thinking of her being alone until 4:30 or 5pm.
I've been praying one of the parents come home early today.
