Noell is doing GREAT on her potty mat!!! I haven't made her go outside since the first day's freezing paws disaster! Every time I send my other dogs out, she comes running and then stops on her mat. She doesn't always "go" when they "go", but she uses the mat when she needs too! I am hopeful that the family that adopts her is ok with this Plan B potty arrangement. The mats are very inexpensive and come in a package of 8 or 10 (I'm not exactly sure) and cost $5.99 at Petco. I'm sure she will learn to go outside once it warms up. . .she's pretty smart! But for now, this is working perfectly!
Noell and little kids. . .she is good with them in that she shows no aggression and uses her manners, but she really doesn't have a lot of interest in them. She also isn't a fan of loud noise. I learned that when my grandson (4yr) was over on Friday and he was showing me how he had learned to whistle! Noah's whistle = high pitched scream! On Saturday, my daughter had a b-day sleepover and Noell did enjoy the attention of the older kids (13yr).
All in all. . .everything Noell is everything good!!
