We just brought our puppy home 8 days ago (at 9 weeks). Be sure to have wipes or paper towels and water along - we could have used them when our little guy got carsick. Luckily he only threw up once and we only had a 1.5 hour drive. The things we took with us were his crate, a blanket and a towel (the towel took the brunt of the carsickness episode), a chew toy, a soft toy with a squeaker, a bottle of water and travel bowl and a collar and ID tag. At home, the things we've used the most are his crate (a Petmate Varikennel), an ex pen (plastic play yard from walmart.com) and a litter box (the Purina 2nd nature miniature size, with puppy pads not litter in it, since that's what the breeder trained him with). We have TONS of stuff for him, but those are the things that have seen the most use. We found out from the breeder ahead of time what food he was eating so we could buy the same. In terms of toys, his favorites so far are the Puppy Kong, a fleece bear with squeaker, a rope bone and a Kong Wubba.
