My dog, a 12 year old cocker spaniel is getting old. I love him dearly but I wanted another for two reasons, as a chum for him (we had a stafford for ten years of his life)and selfishly so we are not without a dog when the old man goes. Never known life without one. So today a new arrival, an 8 week old cocker spaniel.
He's adorable but the old man wants none of his nonsense. He's made that clear a couple of times today. He's s grumpy old sod but there's no wickedness in him.
The reason for the post is to ask a little advice. Its been so long since I've had a pup. I realise the pup will be missing his brothers and sisters. Should I sleep in the kitchen with him for the first couple of nights?
I realise there's a few dog folk on here so figured I'd ask.
Any advice is much appreciated.
