How to Bring Home a Little Monster
Put puppy in travel crate. If puppy poops in travel crate,
let her ride
on the floor of the passenger space. Do not be distracted if she
stares at you. She'll soon fall asleep and remain quiet for the
remainder of the three-hour trip.
Introduce puppy to the home and the resident dog. Give her
time to acclimate to her new Kingdom. (And her new Kong, her new
tennis ball, and her new stuffed piggy).
Let the puppy have some fun outside. If she annoys the hell
out of the resident dog, don't blame the resident dog for baring a few
teeth. Also, don't be too harsh if the puppy mistakes your shoe
toy. (Even when it's still on your foot).
At "beddy-bye" time, lock the puppy and the resident dog into the
room together. If you sneak up on them twenty minutes later and
that they're (miraculously!) sleeping together, you can pop the
champagne. Mission accomplished!
