Welcome.  I am Eileen the provider to NOLA, our 17 month old male mastiff.  We have finally gotten over our sleep deprivation... once he stopped needing to potty at night, he was able to jump in bed with us and wake us at 3 am for a snuggle.  Good luck with the pup.  Where are the pictures?

Hi Annabelle. Welcome!  :)
That's Bear and Nakita in the pic - 3 and 9 years, respectively. Fairly new here myself and LOVE it.
Can't wait to see pics of your pupper.

Hi Annabelle,
I'm new to this Big Paws thing too; our GS is only 3 months old.  Repeat after me, "The crate is my best friend"!!!

I can't believe I ever tried to housetrain dogs without a crate!  Agh!

Keep track of how fast your girlie grows because you just won't believe it.  She'll be putting paws on the counter by the time she's 3 months.  And the barking quickly gets deeper and more threatening-sounding, so try to teach her the command "quiet."  (At least, that's what I'm working on with Atlas right now!)

Good luck and let us know how it goes!
