So we bring the little guy home last night after a VERY long day of having to get him from the breeder. Anyway, come bedtime I know exactly what's going to happen. He's going to go in there and cry his fool head off which he does.
Our female Border Collie, immediately runs to the crate, looks in, growls and barks. Puppy shuts up. One minute later, same thing. Another minute later, same thing. This time the puppy shuts up for good and sleeps through the night!
While this is going on, my wife is saying, "She's talking to him".
