Even if we hadn’t brought Ruby home, we think we would still be a bit disconknockerated after a fortnight away!
Walking buddy E., came for lunch and a play with Ruby. She commented on how settled she was. That is a nice comment to receive but we feel we are saying ‘no’ a lot, which apparently is quite a normal thing to feel.
By Tuesday she was doing most toileting outside which is a bonus. Although she knew where the door was to go out, it will be a while we think before she connects the door with the urge to go.
She continues to sleep through the night until about 06:20 or so. As we are woken by the day chorus around 05:30, we are usually just drifting off again. She sleeps for now in the lounge with us in the back of the house, so unless she is howling/screaming, we don’t really hear her too much and for the most part, get up between 06:30 and 07:00.
She waits quietly when we enter the room for us to let her out of her crate. DB calls her outside whilst I clean up her toilet pen attached to the crate. Most mornings there is usually only one or two wee’s on the paper.
