We took him out around 10pm, and while Cory was with him I took the kennel upstairs and got it ready for bed. Cory tired him out really well, and he snored while we finished watching Fringe on hulu.com and for a little while afterward.
And then he started whimpering and flopping around in his crate, like he'd woken up and noticed nobody was around, which freaked him out. He did that a few times, and then I like to think his whining was a little more urgent, at around 1:30, and I took him out to pee (which he did right away, good boy).
I took him out again around 2:30, and then the next time he sounded like he needed to go out (after 3) Cory was awake so I asked him if he'd take over. He ended up lying next to the kennel with a pillow and blanket for awhile to keep Linus company, and then at 6:30 when my alarm went off they got up for the day.
Trout is still not on board but she's a little better. She slept on me for awhile in the night and has started to hiss at him when he gets too close. But she'll get used to him.
Overall, I think he's a very good boy and he's going to learn his commands in no time. He's not overly chewy or rowdy or jumpy, and even though he's had a few accidents I think he'll learn quickly that outside is where we go potty. (Well, we don't, but he will.)
