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 ?

Welcome beautiful Belle and you sound like a wonderful caring dad.....
I got Woody Hayes when he was 7 wks old (I now know too young). He cried a few times that first night....even when eating, he would set with his face in the bowl and whimper btw bites.....after a few days though he seemed to settle in.....I realized that first week (it was near christmas) that I wore my warm bathrobe alot when I caught him crying at it when it was hung up....I think he thought I was in it and would pick him up....he still will cuddle on that robe if I happen to toss it on the bed......and he is 8 months old...

I am sure you will recieve lots of wonderful advise from this sight...these people are the best...:D

Good luck to you and Belle and here's to many happy days.
Woody Hayes and his mom Kristi
I just realize that in my can see said bathrobe under his little face, all cuddled up...I took that picture when he fell asleep on my lap....:p
