Puppy woke up at midnight seeming to want to play with me. I tried ignoring him but he was insistent. He was panting. So I took him outside. Sure enough, he had to pee and poop. Brought him back inside thinking that was that. No. He still seemed to want to play. This went on for a while. 🤦♀️
I realized that I had forgotten to feed him at he end of the day. So I fed him and hoped he’d go back to sleep. No. He wanted to play.
Eventually I put him in the crate. He cried. I tried ignoring him. He cried some more. So I took him outside again. Sure enough, he had to poop again!
We went back to bed and I simply ignored him. It took awhile but he eventually settled down. I probably fell asleep before he did, but he slept for the rest of the night. I have to get better at routines because I can’t keep having these situations! 😭
