with having poco around we knew that there was going to be a bit of extra effort needed to keep him from making a terrible mess of the place (and i think you know what i mean by *mess*...). so, instead of taking him on 7 walks a day, we figured we would make a special place for him to run outside by himself. we went and got some rabbit fencing and steaks and set up a place for him in the backyard.
it worked. kind of. he likes to go back there, but just yelps if we put him back there by himself. having a dog certainly has its challenges... it took him a few weeks (and a few accidents), but he's starting to feel a lot more comfortable here in his new home.
