" I love to sleep on shoes."
Got some sleep last night too! The cage just wasn't working, so while reading "Golden Retrievers For Dummies" again, it says "It's a good idea to move the crate into your bedroom at night and next to your bed for the first few weeks so that he won't feel left alone." It worked! Timber laid next to him on the floor and I just said "everybody lay down now" and he did. Not a peep! One "poopie run" at 11:30, but back in the cage and back to sleep until 5.
Now to work on the chapter for biting fingers and chewing rugs.
