New Puppy Questions

yesterday was Belle's first day with her new family. We are enjoying all the things that come with puppy expecially bassets.

When it was bed time we have one of those sound machines that make noises. Belle seemed to like the crickets. I checked on her several times and she was sleeping

I know and realize that she is away from what she has known all of her
young life and cries. We try to distract her with her toys, but I am curious
how long this will last ? It just tugs at my heart when she whines. We rub those great basset ears and assure her everything will be all right.

Any ideas would be appreciated and how long the tranisition will last ?

Molly did the same thing when she first came home. She missed her littermates and wandered around crying and looking for them. It lasted a couple of days, then she settled in. One thing that helped her was I gave her a t-shirt that I had worn to sleep in and she cuddled with that when I wasn't with her.

It does break your heart when they cry like that. I think the crying question was my very first post on this forum. Rest easy knowing that Belle is doing something most puppies do and she will get through it. Congratulations on your new addition :)
