Congratulations on your new baby!! Baxter is now 4 months old and I use wee wee pads all the time! I started out using a tray and litter pellets that Purina makes for dogs. He was eating the pellets so I stopped using them and line the tray with newspaper and then several wee wee pads . They saved our house!! We both work all day and this is wonderful. He even uses it when we're home and he has to go in a hurry - he runs in his "kennel" and goes in his tray. Of course there are times that he doesn't make it to the tray and we have to clean the rug He's still learning.... We got him when he was 3 months old so we haven't had him very long. You just have to love him to pieces though - he's just so adorable!
