Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have recently gotten a puppy! She's about 11 1/2 weeks old at the time of this post. She's just been separated from the breeders and her mother for the first time in her life. She does very well when I'm at home - she's very playful and active and she seems to like me. But the second I put her in her crate, whether it be to get something done around the apartment, shower, or get ready for work, she cries, howls, and eventually screams the whole time. She's very loud, and I fear the neighbors can hear her and are going to eventually get annoyed and angry.
How do I fix this? I already know I can't go to her when she cries or else she'll start crying when she just wants attention, but I can't have her pitching a fit for an hour every night I go to work. And I've put all of her toys in the crate too to try and distract her, but she just ignores them when she's upset.
And of course, here's a photograph:
Edit: Upon reading this back, I realized I sound a little cold. I should clarify that I already love her to pieces and she's a wonderful dog!
