Help! I need some place to vent my frustration and ask a couple questions. I have two pugs at home: 1 is a 6 year old fawn male (Hamilton), and the second is a 1 year old black female (Meena). Hammy is my needy little guy, very docile, not so playful anymore, only happy if he is sitting as close to your head as possible (ie: on your neck if you're lying on the couch!). After 6 years, we have a good rhythm for the way we do things. DH and I adopted Meena when she was 12 weeks old from a breeder, and she's been with us since last October. Meena is an entirely different bucket of stew. She is crazy! Okay, so I know she's a puppy, and I appreciate that, but sometimes I am driven batty by her energy, the way she attacks poor Hammy, and her barking. She's as cute as you can get (she's my avatar!), and she loves me, and I love her, but sometimes....I swear....The other thing I am still working on is her potty-training. When she has to go poop, if we're not there watching, it happens regardless. I know the answer to this one: be with her everywhere. Very difficult in our two story house, but I'll have to put some thought into it. She's extremely independent, bossy, and playful. So I wanted to put the call out there to other pug owners and dog owners in general: how long does it take for the old dog to get used to the new dog, because Hammy still seems to resent Meena and act depressed; have you ever seen a difference between how black pugs and fawn pugs behave? And if so, how long til I can expect Meena to settle down a bit in her energy level? Thanks for listening to me vent...I am going home now to face my two little loving monsters!
