    Default Need Some Input and/or Advice For Joey Please

    Hello all! I'm coming to the BRIGHTEST bulldog folks that I know, and after over 2 years here you've never let me down

    Here's the story, short version I hope. I travel for my job. Joey has always, since a pup, stayed with one of my sisters who lives close to me. Well I've moved in with my sister while my house is on the market, we will all be getting a bigger place with more land eventually.

    The first few nights Joey came to my room (now upstairs, was first floor at old house). After the first 2 nights she started doing what she has always done while I am out of town and went to bed with my sister. I could take this one night, two nights, but then I really missed her with me. So I have been bringing her up with me, carrying her....and she sleeps with me all night. But I don't want to have to do that......

    I know that they are creators of habit, hurts a bit, and not sure what do to, if anything.....Joey has been a really good sport about all of this change, I would like to do what is best.

    Hope to hear from someone soon Thanks for listening!
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    Joey is just doing what she's used to while in that house...it's nothing personal.
    I bet that Joey could alternate sleeping with you 2 and it wouldn't bother "her" one bit.
    If you do not want to "share" then keep carrying Joey up with you and she'll eventually get it. It may take a week or 2 or more.
    Joey probably doesn't care too much one way or the other...she loves you both.

    I don't recall seeing any Joey pics lately...I'd like to, please.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    Oh thank you, you've made me feel MUCH BETTER! I LOVE how bonded Joey and my sister are, Joey is a HUGE part of our family. I have no trouble sharing, I want Joey to be comfy everywhere. My sister also said "it's the place, not the person" Joey has been staying here all of her life and I am so thankful to have had a wonderful place for her to stay while I'm gone. I will continue to encourage Joey to come upstairs from time to time but I want her to feel good too.

    I agree, it's what she's used to do doing over there...

    This is just normal on Joey's part. She loves you both,and nothing personal at all-she is just doing what she has been used to doing.She has two Mamas-what a lucky girl!!!

    Agree... if you continue to bring her to 'your' room she will eventually get it... just needs time to adjust to Mom being there now.

    Good luck with the house sale and search!

    Kinda hard to train a dog that's being babysat all this time with your sister and Little Ms Joey which is use to her routine at that house. Like mentioned, pick her up and bring her to your room on the 2nd floor. You'll get a good workout too!
