Hello, I feel a bit silly writing this post as I just got my new puppy 6 days ago but I'm a bit overwhelmed with the feelings of anxiety I have been experiencing and wondering if anyone has any goodfeel stories to pass on to ease my nerves. I have a 9 1/2 week old Yorkshire Terrier who is adorable. I have 2 children, 9 and 7 who are dog mad and always had dogs (poms and cavalier king charles) growing up. This is my 1st dog in my own house. I only work 2 days a week and am with the puppy other than that. She sleeps in the kitchen and only cried for 10 mins after I put her to bed last night and then again at about 6.30 a.m. this morning for about 5 minutes but then didnt wake up until 7.30 a.m. She is very small but seems to be very clever and quite spunky. The problem is I am so anxious worrying that I made a mistake taking on the puppy ever since I got her. It's like what I felt for the first few weeks after I had my children 'my life used to be so easy and now it's so unpredictable and I don't like this feeling.' I keep thinking did I do the right thing and why did I have to change things up in the house. Now I feel like my time is not my own and I worry about the dog constantly. She hasn't had her 2nd injections yet so she can't go out for walks but we have a nice enclosed garden but it's been raining for the past couple of days so she doesn't like the wet grass She is such a gorgeous puppy and I love her so much and get glimpses of excitement when I think of her being able to go on walks with me and come in the car with me and walking to collect the kids from school and going to training classes but mostly I just feel anxious like my life will never be my own again. Completely irrational I know but it's how I'm feeling. I've also always had 2 dogs when I lived in my parents but I feel 1 dog is enough for my family and again I feel guilty that she is on her own although I have brought her down to my mams house to meet her dogs and she gets along really well with them (they are 10 year old cavaliers) so they are very mellow. She also doesn't seem to eat at regular times. Any advice on how often I should be feeding her would be great. She does her pee on the puppy pads at night but poos on the floor furthest as she can get from her bed. She only so far has managed to go once for a pee outside in the garden. Yesterday I walked around with her every hour on the hour but she does nothing and then comes in and wees on the floor or rug. She is very small (3lbs) so cleaning up after her doesn't bother me at all. She loves her chew toys and in the evening curls up on my husband's lap to sleep. Again, any advice for any other dog owners would be great and anyone who has felt like I do it would be great to hear as at the moment I am feeling very nervous. Thanks a million!
