Hey and welcome back!
We've missed you! I'm sorry that your pain has been out of control and that you have lost your beloved pets. It is so hard to watch them suffer and so hard to loose them (because they are members of the family).
I am in awe that you were able to take in two new puppies at the same time! We got a new baby pomeranean at Christmas. I love her and she is wonderful with learning tricks, but I have to admit I call her "devil dog" a lot of the time...lol She has that high pitched toddler scream like Straydog was saying....and she is in to everything.
We use bitter cherry spray (completely safe and smells great too) to keep her from chewing on furniture and things and it works great. We also let her sleep in her baby crib and she has decided that is her "comfort area" now, so that is helping keep the carpet less damaged. We keep a puppy pad in one corner and she uses that in between trips outside. The bowels are now under control, but the bladder is driving us nuts about now.
I hope your new babies are doing well and are letting you rest a little.
I've missed you and am very happy to see you back.
