Just a quick Bella update as I havent posted in a while. Bella went on her first camping trip. I was going to leave her with a dog sitter because I was worried about her around all the kids but I really shouldn't have worried at all. She had a great time, she loved all the kids and lapped up every second of attention that she got, which was constant. She was very tolerant and even took part in a talent show!! She met tons of new adults, kids, horses and cows. I was so proud of her, especially when one of the little girls said that she wanted a puppy just like Bella. She was totally amazing considering she had so many new experiences.

This thread has been so wonderful to read -- as others have already said, I could also have written so many of these posts verbatim. I've cried, felt like a failure, wondered what on earth I'd been thinking when I wanted to get a puppy, never realized (even having been through this before) how exhausting and frustrating pups can be, etc! It's a good reminder than Cobber's errant behavior, especially with regard to biting when he gets overexcited, is something puppies do.

He is already getting a teeny bit better each day, and I think I'm also doing better with him each day (learning how *not* to set him off). He occasionally still grabs my pants cuff or shoes, but now drops it right away when asked and sits for a treat. If he does it a second time, into the pen he goes with lots of his toys and chews to keep him busy.

I just wanted to echo the sentiments raised in this thread -- it's so wonderful to know I'm not alone in all this!!

For the record, I too had visions of a cuddly sweet puppy who would romp and play nicely then snuggle on my lap, and then turn instantly into a full-grown friendly companion dog who would go on hikes with me every day. Hahahahaha! Hopefully he will grow into that dog before I keel over.

I think all pups and different.. My puppy is awesome with potty training and sleeping through the night but when it comes to her crate she cries and slobbers for a long time.
She has slept with me since the night I got her because she hasn't had any accidents.. She does the biting and growling thing and I tell her ouch or tsk and she will stop. Then a while later do it again lol.. I can't wait to be able to take her on walks to get some of her energy out!
I enjoyed reading this long post lol.. Nice to see she is growing and improving!

They all have their challenges. My friends puppy doesn't chew a thing, but Bella eats everything in sight. She reminds me of my youngest daughter who literally put everything in her mouth, she still at the age of seven will lick things that she really shouldn't, often not even realising she is doing it!!!!! So I guess the moral of this story is puppies are as gross as kids or something!!!!! Oh no, it's that they are all different. Some just a little more different than others. X

Just to let you know, this does get better. Bella hasn't ruined any clothes in ages and I have even started to wear bracelets again too. Hang in there x

On the first few days I was wearing my pyjamas constantly in case I got peed on. No accidents however my husband was in stitches any time i struggled into the room with a little bundle of fluff clamped onto my trouser leg.

We find that if he bites skin then saying 'no' firmly makes him stop and do a curious face (i think hes saying 'is that not fun for you Mum?') but we distract him with one of his toys too to make sure he can still work his teeth around something
