Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by to read my thread. I'm 14 years old and I'm so confused about this dog thing. We just got him yesterday. He's a 4 month old Golden Retriever. Last night he slept cuddled up in a blanket a few feet away from my bed. Tonight, I'm planning on having him on a leash attached to a chair downstairs with his blanket. Is that okay? Please tell me it is. I didn't get much sleep last night because I was so concerned about him. I could just cry. Maybe being separate will keep the anxiety away from me. Someone please confirm this with me; I'd really appreciate it. Thanks so much everyone.
