If anyone read my thread about the lost puppy we have inherited, well she is still with us. she was not microchipped and still there are not lost dog signs anywhere to find. Well we have been bringing her inside because it is soo cold outside. We have an 11 year old cat and this puppy is 9 months old. Will they ever get along??? We have been introducing them slowly and keeping the dog on a leesh and the cat seems to be okay with it all but if the dog barks it freaks the cat out. We have been alternating which animal to keep in a room all night. Is this the right thing to do? Can they ever learn to co-exist? Also we let the dog out to potty but how many times should we do this in a day? She has not messed in the house but I don't think she is really letting us know she has to go, she may be holding it. And then when we put her outside she will not "go" unless one of us is out there to keep telling her to go. Should I be concerned if the dog is only pooping once a day? It has been a long time since I have been around dogs. Any advice would be great. Thanks!!
