I know dogs are amazing creatures and adapt very well, but I'm feeling so guilty for leaving my now 9 week puppy home alone for the first time (I'm back to work full time today after taking a few days off with her). Yes, she's safe (has her crate and a safe area to be in case she needs to go potty since my husband cannot come home everyday to let her out of the crate). She has toys and safe chews and a radio playing in the background (and lights on) but I feel soooooo bad for leaving her alone. I'm actually only working until 2:30pm and go home; my husband is going to try to go home at noon to check on her - his job is crazy and he only gets 30 min total for lunch. Anyway, I want to believe that she'll adapt to our lifestyle just like my other GSD did and she'll be fine. I played a lot with her this morning and as soon as I get home, she'll be showered with attention but being such a little thing, I feel so bad for leaving her. Anyone with similar situation?
