    Ok so I am making SOME progress with Lily with housebreaking. I have been letting her play fifteen minutes and then crating her fifteen minutes and then taking her outside to go potty and she is doing good that way. She had one accident today but that is because I totally lost track of time and she hadn't been outside for half an hour so she went in on the floor. This has really made me realize how different each puppy is to housebreak. I thought I had it ALL figured out. I'll get it, we'll both get it together.

    Yes especially because she is very independant so it's showing me good ways to get through to her and train her since lots of methods aren't really working. It's helping a lot with Hannah though we know put paper and cans up on the counters to keep her from jumping and it seems to work a little bit.

    How to raise a puppy you can live with. It's really good. I got my off of Amazon.com for like ten bucks, including shipping (slightly used but in really good condition).

    Well a little back track from her so good behaviour. We had to go back to ten minutes playing and twenty minutes in the crate then outside. She was starting to have frequent accidents. I think we will have to go up slowly minute by minute. First ten minutes out than eleven then twelve and so on and so forth.
