awwww what a cute baby!!! i think you should put the crate in your room and put your hand in to calm him down when he whines. we got lola when she was 11 weeks and she was kind of already used to being crated, albeit with her siblings, so she went in no probelm. you can also fill a kong with peanut butter or cream cheese and that should keep him occupado for at least 1/2 hour. and make sure he is TUCKERED OUT when he goes in. and then stay strong and hope the neighbors are kind more pics of puppy please!
