The non fuss-pot!
by Rahul Rajan
So you think when you bring a puppy home, there is no doubt that you will have sleepless nights the first few days.
At least this was the case when I had the Great Dane pup at home for a week. She gave me a tough time, as she used to whine at night and if left her alone would start barking. So I thought this was a regular thing when you separate a puppy from its mother.
Moment I brought him home, I let him be for a while to discover the place around. He was happily roaming around, marked his territory the very first minute. It was a lot of wiping to do because every few minutes he would pee on the tiles.
I was just preparing myself for a sleepless night when I switched off the light. I kept him in the room, so presently he has no collar and no leash, was too young for all that. The whole night I slept peacefully, and when I woke up he was just lying under the table. He didn't fuss at all - Not one bit!
Best part, now its been 4 months and not one day has he made a fuss except of course unless he wants to relieve himself. Probably the most calm puppy I have ever come across.
Above is a pic where he is sleeping in the hall with one head on the mat. Passed out!
