Sleep

 After our first sleepless night, we had to make a change so that Lucie would sleep. We had taken Lucie to where I work yesterday to introduce her to everyone. All of my friends just couldn't wait to meet her. We started discussing our sleepless night and suggestions on how to improve things for the second night. I had heard to use a clock inside a towel in the crate for a fake heart beat sound. Natalie, one of my best friends from work, is pregnant with a little girl that they have named Paisley. She suggested placing the Mommy Bear in the crate with Lucie. It is a plush bear that has an adjustable heart beat womb sound. 
And guess what, IT WORKED!

 

It also comes in handy for naps in her playroom.

 

 

Here is a sample of what it sounds like.
We will have the Lucie Cam up and running daily between 8 a.m. and 11 p.m. so hopefully everyone can catch of glimps of her in action. Since she is only 7 weeks old, she does sleep a lot but we think she is cute even when she is sleeping.


We would like to say thank you to everyone for visiting! We will make our rounds to all of our friends blogs as soon as we can. Little Lucie is keeping us pretty busy. Oh, and we have lots more pictures to come!

My humans bought one of those heartbeat things for old guy-guy Nova back when he lost his best friend Nikki. Even though he was 10 years old, it really helped soothe him.

Then I came home as an itty bitty fluffy puppy and they tried it with me, and I ripped it to shreds.

She is cute, and a potential HULA member in the making

Woofy hello to Lucie!
When Mumsy Pica had puppies and they were old enough to be sent to their new homes, Keeper would have little towels with Mumsy Pica's smell as part of their send off so they won't feel lost...geez, I'm glad I was never part of that bunch or I'll keep everybody in my new home sleepless ALL YEAR!

Sweetie, what a wonderful idea your Mummy's friend had! She looks so quiet, sleeping like an angel! :)

Joey said...

Hi Addie! We're all kinda tired around here, too. Zekie goes to sleep when we do, but he wakes up every few hours and needs to go out and go potty, and then he wants to play a little before going back to sleep.

Yawn...
Joey

Hi little baby dawg Lucie it is nice to meet you! I does not remember when I wuz a baby dawg but Mummy sez that is cause I hitted my head way too many times and it made me a dum dum. So the best advise I can gives you is to not hit yer head too much.

Yer pal Dozer

misskyliem said...

Lucie is such a cute puppy! Reminds us of our Bear when he was small, but he grew much too fast!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

OH what a cutie. Don't worry you will figure it out.. Callie sleeps most of the night now with the occasional wimpers to go out to potty..
The weather sure can't make up it's mind can it?

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We can't help but think how lucky Lucie is to have you. Your kind heart is certainly appreciated by her.. Let her enjoy her time outside perhaps she will wear herself out and sleep all night for you.. It works with Callie.

Enjoy your day...
Gus, Louie and Callie

Amber said...

The OP Pack said...

Whatever the test results show - she is perfect - who cares, she is just so cute. We had the same reaction here from our old girl Dakota when we brought Thunder home. but with time, she has accepted him as a buddy.

Woos, the OP Pack
