Got Duma a name tag today (in Oregon colors):
This is her in her crate. I had reservations about using a crate (my dog growing up, Pepper, never was in a crate). But everyone I talked to, including the vet and the people at the shelter, said this is the way to go, and that she will begin to love her crate. The first night, she whined for about 30 minutes and then fell asleep. She still whines for a while at night, and during the day when I'm gone, but she sometimes goes in and sleeps by herself during the day, so that's good. I work close to home, so I come home at lunch every day to hang with her.
