Default 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!

If you have a chi sized crate/carrier you can put Finn in the carrier and take him to bed with you. That way he can still be with you in/on the bed and still be confined. Praise like mad if he wakes you up, or is clean in the am. Leave the 'new' pup in the pen.

So, Finn slept alone in his crate last night. He pooped and hid it in his blanket. I just returned from the vet with the new puppy. He has 2 parasites, and I had taken a sample for Finn as well. Finn has 1 of the puppie's parasites. I'm hoping once we get rid of these Finn can return to our bed! Thanks for the replies!

It may take a while for them to bond. They will probably be good buddies in a couple months. I would give each their own space, pen for new pup and crate for Finn (or bed if the deworming solves the pooping. Forcing them to be together makes things worse. When we brought home Peanut at 14 weeks she chewed on the others and they weren't having it. They one day Piper turned around and bit her. She had finally understood and within days the other 2 started enjoying her. In a couple weeks they were all snuggling. Relax and enjoy your pup. Please post some pics, too.

I'm very happy to report that Finn is back to normal after being on his parasite medication. No pooping in his crate for several nights, so we tried him in our bed last night. We woke up to a clean comforter! I'm so thankful this was a physical problem rather than a behavioral one. Thanks for your replies!
