the Kitchen and dining room. They are connected and we have a large gate that we put up so they are contained.

When i am at work, Honey is in the kitchen and hallway, she has a bed, water and a few toys. She has a walk in the morning and at lunch, so she sleeps pretty much through the day. When I come home, it's walkies again and she stays awake until bed.

When I am home, she has free run of the house. We just moved last month so even if I pop to the shops for 10 mins, I still put her in the kitchen/hall as I don't trust her in this house yet.

I would like to leave her with the front room or the bedrooms too, but she has a habit of chewing wires! So, maybe not for a few years hey

When my mom is home (she lives with us) the girls have the whole house, otherwise they just scratch and cry at our door cuz they hear her. They have dug the carper up under my door a few times, now I have an extra carpet remnant under the door in case they dig again. Lil monsters. Anyways, when no one is home, they are shut in our bedroom, mostly cuz I don't want them getting into anything else, and they would mostly just sleep on our bed or the couch anyways, but also because we live with a German Shepard. He is the sweetest thing and never even tries to play with them, but I still would never leave them unattended. The room has their very large crate, which Izzie loves, their chews, and our bed that they sleep on every night. I used to have a midwest x-pen in our room for them to use when we are gone. We still have it, but don't use it. Bella can climb up, like a ladder, and Izzie can jump! I'd come home and one, or both, would be out. I got a pretty tall one too. I have a cover for it, but it's just annoying. If we have more room later, where we have a basement or extra room, I would like to set up a better x-pen that they can't get out of, but I dunno if I will be able to find one.

Karen, what kind of x-pen do you have?

Odie stays in the same space whether we're home or not. We gate our stairs and she has free run of the main floor of our house. When she was a puppy though, we would keep her in a playpen when we were gone. Now that she's an adult, she behaves like a lady when we're not there.

Douglas is locked in a bathroom if he does not come along. He rips up the toilet paper and pees on the floor.. we worry he might destroy everything if left loose in the whole house. I'm home a lot though.

When Lupita was a baby my husband and my schedules overlapped 3 days a week. Those 3 days, I would drop her at an older lady's (grandma) house that lived out by me. I would quietly unlock grandma's front door and tell Lupita to go find grandma. Sally told me those were the best mornings... Seeing the little girl trying to jump on her bed.

We lost grandma, and I was concerned about Lupita being home by herself. She did just fine. We left pads down but Lupita would only use them only if she absolutely couldn't hold it. No chewing of anything. She still has Bobo which was her first and still her favorite toy. My husband is now home with her every day. One of 2 things happens if he has to go out. If he tells her that she has to play big dog and guard the house then she will stay on the sofa and pout. If he doesn't tell her that then "Katie Bar the door....". Lupita is going for a ride!

Short story (and I have many about my dear sweet friend Sally). I got the milk container out of the fridge one night and noticed Lupita was dancing and spinning. I didn't think anything about it until the next time I got the milk out, and there is Lupita dancing and spinning. I called Sally and asked her why the little girl was dancing and spinning every time she saw the milk container. Sally never missed a beat... Her response, "the baby likes it lukewarm with a touch of honey in it!.
