Yeah, it took Toby until he was 8ish months old to actually have potty training to "click" completely.

I've just got my new chi puppy yesterday. He's 8 weeks and weighs 1lb 2! He's the runt. So far he's peed lots not no poop yet! He's been eating dry food at the breeders but just a generic one, so I thought I'd try him on Science Diet but he's not eating it. Drank a little, but I'm worrying about the no pooping.... Also he's soo attached to me, last night he whined for 1 hour before passing out!! Is this normal? Sorry never had a chi before!!!

First, I'd recommend starting a new thread for individual questions in the future.

Second, I'd feed something better quality than science diet. Look into Fromm and Acana. Fromm is excellent, it's what I feed. Science diet is not the best quality. Also, make sure you transition from his current food slowly so he doesn't get an upset tummy.

Third, it's normal for him not to poop. He may be nervous and it could take a while to adjust.
