I'm obsessed with buying puppy things!

Now that we know which puppy we are getting and still have 3-4 weeks to go, I need something else puppy-related to do. I have found so many amazing sites online that sell clothing and toys and cute collars and personalized things and so much more!

Although I've only actually purchased one item so far (a pink faux mink doggie throw at Nordstroms online), I have tons of items in my shopping carts at all these different stores. Trying really hard not to go overboard but I'm about ready to spend $14 per toy for a "Chewy Vuitton" purse and a "Bark Jacobs" shoe! OMGosh I didn't know there were so many cool things out there!

My hubby commented the other day "at least the new puppy has kept you from looking/buying new purses and shoes" ... heh. I can't wait until he sees these!

There is so much BLING out there, too! I even found little tiny bows for Christmas with crystals and holly leaves on them that I'll HAVE to get since our little girl will be named Holly.

Tooooooo much fun!!!

Have you found Petedge.com already? There's no reason you need to be spending $14 on a plush toy... Petedge has toys I find at my local pet store for a quarter (sometimes less!) of the price.

I was gonna suggest PetEdge, too. There's a minimum order requirement, but it sounds like you'll hit that with no problem. Happy shopping!

Haha! I had to laugh at the "Chewy Vouitton"

We get our puppy on the 30th, and yeah, I've been pretty excited and have been buying things here and there...I mean, besides the essentials like the crate and exercise pen and grooming stuff

Have fun!

Isn't it fun preparing for a new puppy? I'd wait on the more expensive toys however, I found that Stella destroys plush toys in a matter of minutes so it's not worth it to buy expensive ones. The only toys she doesn't "kill" immediately are latex ones.
Have fun puppy shopping!

It is fun! Even picking out the collar and leash...or a little tag with his name and our phone number

I have mostly chew toys...like kongs and stuff for teething right now...ok...and one cute little plush toy, lol.

AKathy-- is that the 'teddy bear cut' that your Stella is sporting? i really like that length!

I had not yet found petedge! Thanks for directing me there!

My local Walgreens once had dog toys for $2 and they were nice plush ones by Milkbone -- I think I bought over a dozen of them and still have many left, so saving for the new puppy.

It would be crazy to spend $14 on a dog toy, but I'll probably do it eventually. LOL! I'll wait until she's older and past the destroy the toy age.

Welcome to the club! That first year, you will probably buy more stuff than what you paid for your pup!

I go a little crazy too but it's fun! Do you have a HomeGoods or TJMaxx store near you? Amanda, Sharlene, and I get great stuff there and the prices are good. I buy a lot from PetEdge, Dog.com, and PetFlys. Luckily my husband loves the dogs like I do so he just laughs and shakes his head.

Let us know if you find any good deals!

***I forgot King Wholesale!
