Unhappy Help! New puppy in the house

Can anyone help me - we've just brought home our new 8 week old Jack Russell pup - eagerly awaited and well prepared for - now I'm really panicky, fell like crying all the time and i don't know why. i haven't slept for a couple of nights through worrying (about what I don't actually know)
He's being a good boy and the training etc doesn't bother me (I already have 3 kids) so why do I feel like this? Is it normal and will it pass?

HELP!

I think that you are just a little anxious and maybe relieved that your puppy is finally with you
It is a little like having a new baby in the house and takes a few days for everyone to settle into a routine.
I am sure that you will be just fine
Let us know how your doing.
Whats the pups name?

His name is Rogan. I tried to get a dog before but came over all panicky and couldn't do it so maybe this is bit of the same thing?
I really hope it passes as I feel like a really good cry at the mo!

Lovely name

I think that you will do good, you just need time to adjust to having a new little one depending on you

Lol dont worry.. first few weeks of having a new puppy, you will loose sleep

We have a new pup here as well for temp - Belgian Tervuren named Chime.

Shes a very good little girl, almost completely house broken at 5 months, but she does still wake you up early in the morning

Just relax, breathe and settle down. What exactly are you worried about not knowing?

If you did the proper research before you purchased her and got your pup from a respectible breeder. You should have no worries at all

I think what I am thinking is 'Have I done the right thing'. My children are getting a little older and more independent so my life is on an even keel - i think I am worried about rocking the boat - half of me wants to rewind and not to have got him but the other half of me has wanted a dog for soooo long so I'm really confused.

Your puppy will be part of your family before you know it.
Then you will wonder why you ever had these fears

Aggreed!

Make SURE you take your Jack to puppy classes, obedience classes and possibly try some RallyO or Agility with him!

Because you chose a fairly active dog, you need to channel their energy somehow!

He'll be fine with you soon enough No worries at all!

I'm sure your kids are extremely happy to have a puppy in the house as well!

Just dont get frustrated at all

No Worries!

I dont fully understand your anxiety, I'm sorry

I'm also used to having dogs in my house - my parents used to breed/show/train dogs so our house was always filled lol

We have 4 puppies in the house right now..
2 Shelties who are a year and a month old
2 Belgian Tervurens who are 11 months and 5 months old.

Are you worried about the cost of a puppy? Are you worried that you wont be "free" anymore?
Are you worried that your kids will not like this situation?
