Rollerdonna, good luck with your "new arrival" Griffen. Having a puppy is so much fun but yes, it is a lot of work until they are "trained". I miss my Brandy and Muffy every day. No more dogs since Rob and I leave town a lot to visit our daughters' and their families and to travel. Brandy and Muffy would cry and not eat every time we left town. It would have been great if we could have found somebody to watch, when we left town, and could care for our dogs as much as we did! I'll just have to wait for a "granddoggie!" Have a great day, fellow cruisemates.
