Re feedback on bullterrier puppy
Hi Everyone;

Thanks for the wonderful feedback. Last night we had a great night.

Firstly my husband took some wood and made a "mini fence" around the swimming pool. Secondly I found out that she was starving. The breeder told me to only allow the puppy to eat the pellets whe bought from her to avoid stomach upset, unfortunately the puppy hated the pellets, so out of desperation yesterday I gave her chicken & rice flavoured kitten food that was my cat's food. The puppy ate like there was no tomorrow. I know this sounds wrong but I didn't have any other choice, she kept on crying and when she finished eating she fell asleep immediately.
I also took teddy bears and placed it underneath her blanket to look like more bodies and the hot water bottle.
She slept withouth any crying up until 13h30 outside with the older bullterrier, in her own kennel and the reason she awoke was due to the older bullterrier barking at something. I then reheated the hot water bottle and puppy slept through until this morning. Once again thanks!!!
