I just love this forum! So many people share their experience. I am so grateful. Thank you for sharing! No one has to worry at all about either Richard nor I being inpatient with the baby. We realize that Ellie doesn't have a clue and is just being a puppy. I wouldn't expect a human baby to control their bladders and would never spank one for not being able to control their bodily functions. I think we'll do just fine.
