Today is the day before the little arrival. The crate is assembled. Puppy toys are ready and Jack’s little sister’s toys are put away. I once read a very helpful description of a day in the life of a puppy. It was in the book “Good Owners, Great Dogs by Brian Kilcommons. I found it very helpful when I got my first puppy. I though Jack and his family might also find it useful. I suggested they draw a pie graph. A circle divided into 5 wedges. Label the wedges as follows: Sleep; Wake up and pee; Eat; Bowel Movement; Play, Pee a few times. This cycle of events will repeat 4 to 6 times in a puppy’s day. Jack’s Dad thought it sounded like having a baby again. It does and it is.
