10 mo old pooping in our bed after bringing home 2nd puppy
Our 10 mo old male Chi (Finn) has been sleeping in our bed for about 5 months, and he's never had an accident. We brought home a 4 mo old male Chi 1 week ago. I had both puppies sleep together the first 4 nights in an xpen to help the new guy adjust. The last 3 nights, Finn returned to our bed and pooped in it all 3 nights. Help! I'm wondering if he's sending me a message that he wants this intruder gone! Most of the time they seem to really enjoy playing together, but other times my older guy seems to be bullied and seems sad. I don't want his little spirit to be broken, and I'm really worried about it. I realize 1 week isn't a good measure of their compatibility yet, but what on earth do I do about the night time pooping? I can have Finn sleep in his crate alone to see if that helps, but I somehow feel like I'm punishing him by banishing him from the bed. Ironically, we got the 2nd pup for Finn since he seemed to enjoy other dog's company so much! I will be discussing this with our vet, but I'd really like to hear opinions and suggestions from my Chi people. Thank you!
