Your puppy is completely adorable
Lulling you into a false sense of security.
What's the pup's name?
In a move that my dad thinks we’ll come to regret.
Wife has naming rights (I came up with the names that stuck to our cat and toddler), and had gone through a roll call of horrors (Apolline, Apollo, Cerulean, Claudette, Colline...) before accidentally suggesting Biscuit.
I latched onto Biscuit as a drowning man clings to a life raft, and desperately began naming her so to our toddler; and so, Biscuit she is. (And definitely not Apolline, Abalone, Cerulean, or Causette.)
My sister's choc lab (RIP ) was called Biscuit It's a good name for your pup
Biscuit means 'cooked twice' btw fwiw etc
Will Biscuit become Biccie over time?
Just have to be careful when offering guests something to go with their cup of tea/coffee. "Would you like a biscuit?" "Yes I'd like a whole litter of them please"

Biscuit is a good name, I hope you practiced calling it?
She’s started farting.
I’m also assuming that I’ve got no chance of making the gym tonight, as she’s stuck to me like glue and whimpers pitifully as soon as crated. She’ll obvs have to get used to that tonight (though I’ll be sleeping downstairs w the crate beside me), but in the meantime it looks like potentially making for an hour of hell all round!
And she is very cute. Sleeping on my lap. Again.
Edit: I did check she hadn’t shit herself, when the first fart began wafting north.
Put one of your t-shirts in her crate to help settle her.
I think we’re now up to seven accidents
The last one was one piss, interrupted twice by ten minute entirely unproductive waits outside
Edit: she has a pheromone infused pee post.
She chews it.
After the decent one I HAD been wearing got pissy paws all over it, I changed it for an eminently crateable one that I’ll wear until bed. In a stinky jumper, that should up its stink quotient.
PMSL...@ funny wafting farts.....
Outside, in socks with a treat bag, waiting for her to piss on something ducking other than our kitchen floor.
Now sleeping in my warmest clothes next to her on the sofa (bin liner underneath her crate). Piss alarm set for midnight! She ain’t touching the fjcking ground until she’s pissed outside. And I aren’t bothering with putting wellingtons on, if that gives her the time to piss on the kitchen floor whilst they’re going on. Again.
Edit2: her dreams are both hilarious, and noisy. Thought she’d woken up just now - nope. Flat out. Snuggled into my used t-shirt. But whimpering furiously.
Oop! Plus a little growl.
Look at those big pleading eyes.
Just hope i didn’t treat her too mid-stream.
I hate to say this mrs quoad but a faster alternative to the Wellington may be crocs. Heaven knows I couldn't recommend them in any other circumstances. Oh and please give biscuit a kiss on da head from me.
May I suggest a blanket draped over the top and sides of the cage to give Biscuit a sense of security in her "dog cave" ?
She has one - just visible in the background of the crate shot
Atrocious night, wrt sleep. Mostly because I was angsty and didn't want her to piss on her crate (and so, through the vetbed, and so, on the sofa. Though now I think about it, her crate has a plastic base. So, yeah. That was unnecessary.) Three pisses outside, successfully. (Yay!) Finishing with one at 7am (yay!)
Then came back in, and she shat on the floor. #lol
She's asleep on me atm, whilst I work from our kitchen table. On me and in the crate are the two places I know she won't piss, so that's a winner, ay.
MOAR gratuitous puppy pics please mrs quoad
The pile of things for the washing machine that are covered in puppy piss is slowly increasing. Including a first pair of my trousers, dammit. Thought she was safe, sleeping on my lap. Clearly not!
lol biscuit mrs quoad - very adorable, moar piccies (and on puppy thread, too) and a kiss from me.
also lol'ing at Eleanor whips up sea foam party for dog
We think she’s relaxed.
Well. She’s now slightly more socialised to buses, towns, people, markets, and funfairs. And to bags. Being carried in bags.
mrs quoad you are aware that allowing tiny cute puppies on the bed tends to lead to big, smelly, not-so-cute grownup dogs taking up half the bed, yes?
She’s not allowed on the bed
