I do have a question though. How exactly would I feed them. Since Lina is on adult food and the pup will be on puppy food, do I like put them on a feeding schedule instead of free feed like I've been doing? I'm kinda confused on how to do that.
Congrats on the pup!! I know you must be bursting with excitement. :)

When I got Cooper, he was too little to eat dry kibble, so I had to wet down his food and feed him that way. Most likely, your little one will be too small as well.

I don't know about the 2 dog household ... if you plan on feeding him puppy food, then you may have to get creative since your older dog will probably go for it. My vet told me that once a dog is seperated from the mother, it is okay to feed them adult dog food and I switched Cooper over at 4 months. I'm not sure how other vets or chi owners would feel about that but Cooper did fine and never complained.

I'm sure a multi-dog household will chime in with some good ideas though.
