We are going through the first few weeks with Cruiser. He is now crate trained at night...so nice. I still get up after four hours and take him out but he doesn't fuss at all now when we put him in. He didn't eat alot at first either but I held off and feed three times a day and now he is hungry and eats it all. He is bonding really well with me, my husband and our son. We are just starting to take him for little walks and he hasn't got all his shots so no other dogs yet. I am really happy with our progress and really enjoying him. Its like having a baby all over again!!
