It seemed to taken alot out of her.

She slept the whole way to Lubbock from Odessa, then when we got here she used the restroom and i played with her for alittle while. Then fell asleep on my lap.

She is going to have serious separation anxiety problems. she don't want to leave my side, and if she can't see me then she starts to whine and cry.

What can i do to help her while i am in class tomorrow, and she is here at the house by herself?

put her in the crate with toys and leave the tv on so it won't be so quit in here??

Hopefully she gets use to being by herself during the day.

she is 7 weeks old, and i will be gone for 3 hours at the most at a time.

I get 2 hrs for lunch so i will be coming in during that time to let her out and play alittle bit, then she will be back in for about 2 hrs again, then i am home for the rest of the day.

I think she will be okay. Leave the TV on as you said you'll do. When you get back home (for the rest of the day) try to work with her on the crate issue. Put her in there while you are there, and gradually leave for a minute, 5 minutes (with repetitions..) and treats and praises all the time (not when she's whining). She'll get the hang of it, I think you can still prevent the separation anxiety from developing...

Be sure that when you'll be in class tomorrow she will cry and whine, and probably get the entire neighborhood on their feet... but I don't see what you can do about that, at least not the first day or two...

She is 7 weeks old and was just separated from her mom and siblings, so she sees you as her daddy, that's why she is crying when you leave her sight.... she will learn that you are not gone, and will return. Give her time.
