I've had little Lilly for a little over a week now. She drives me crazy, but I love her so much. I've been trying to crate train her since I brought her home. There are so many puppy training guidelines to follow. One behaviorist says this and another says that. It's difficult to know what I'm doing right versus wrong. I want to be the best dog mom I can be. Anyone who has crate trained knows that it is very difficult emotionally. I put her in the little kennel when it's time for bed, but the first few days she cried and yelped endlessly. I felt like crying too. Today, I realized all that work paid off. She played around for an hour or so and eventually tired herself out. Then she drug her little feet into the crate all by herself and plopped down. Good girl! I'm so proud of my little baby. I just had to take a picture. P.S. I'd like to ask for your prayers for my dear friend Sheila who lost her faithful companion, Jake, this past weekend. He was a much loved dog.
