Moses is quite upset with me right now. He thinks I spend far too much time with the puppies and leave him out. So to voice his frustration, he pees in the house every time I go out without him and is ignoring me today.

To prevent him wetting in the house again, I took him out when I was with the pups this afternoon and he just stood and glared at me and them. When we came back in he went to the bedroom and is laying in there alone rather than by my side like normal.

I'm not sure how to deal with him since I do need to spend time socializing the pups and with Canada and it's really not a positive thing for him to be so possessive of me. My daughter is here so she's giving him a bit of special attention, but he wouldn't even take a treat from me. LOL

What a BRAT! (He is eating and drinking fine, and is normal with her... so I don't belive he's sick, he's just good and ornery toward me)

Awww Moses....you poor put out Doodle! It's amazing to me how sensitive they are, and how easily their feelings are hurt! :cry: If I had the same situation with Raleigh, I would have gone into the bedroom and laid down with him and hugged him and talked to him softly for 10 min. or so....is Moses allowed to be with the the pups at all? Maybe he wouldn't feel so left out if he thought he was 'helping' you watch the pups...I don't know, maybe it's worth a shot....

I bring a couple of pups at a time inside frequently just to give them more individual attention and get them used to different noises, scenery, etc... if they dare to wander near Moses he starts to growl. He also won't tolerate them near his favorite toys, or coming over to me if he sees them heading in my direction. He wants nothing at all to do with them.

He has learned to tolerate their mother getting attention, but the pups seem to be just too much for him to bare.
