You must be so excited, waiting for Butter! I got Dudley when he was just 8 weeks old. At the time, I was working outside of the house (now my office is at home) and used a crate for him. He NEVER had an accident in his crate...NEVER. I found him kind of amazing. I took him out at about 6:45 am; again at lunchtime (I would run home), about 12:15 or so; and then I would get home by 6. He was so good...I was a nervous wreck for a while, but honestly...he was stupendous!
