Thanks alot for the advice, I tried putting the clock in with her she cried even more, I tried putting the whole bed in bed with me but she wants to be held while she slept i guess a bad habit of mine is to pick her up, So now im trying to just put her in a box with stuffed toy dogs and letting her cry it out, so far so good she only cried for about 10 minutes tonight before she went asleep

just like my kid! and just like my first one tried to do!
i don't mean to equate kids and animals, just babies and babies!
the less exercise they get, expect a worse night, the more,the better.
do not give them an experience that you do not intend to be permenant. they try it, they like it, they expect it. guess you could say they live in an "ideal" world, (wouldn't you!?!)
hold tight, it does get better, and yes, it may also gets worse. but before you know it, you've got a wonderful animal that is watching out for you!

I let my border collie sleep in the bed when he was a baby. But in my case he grew to be 70lbs and eventually he had to default to the floor because there was not enough room in my single bed for the both of us! And I sure wasn't going to sleep there! LOL
What I am trying to say is that if it doesn't bother you for now to have the pup in your bed it isn't a big deal... as long as you have the guts later on to move them to the floor. That is IF you want them to sleep on the floor!

Try putting something that you have worn in her bed, your smell so to speak. Maybe hold one of it's stuffed animals for awhile, that may comfort the pup.
