Brutus Buckeye Coming Soon!!!

Hello All!
I am new to the forum(have been lurking for a couple of weeks!) My name is Lindsay and I am a stay at home mom to 3 girls and soon to be 1 Hav! Brutus(yes we are faithful Ohio State fans was born on Feb 23 and will be ready to come home to us in the first week of May . Needless to say I am super excited to meet my first little boy!!! Also I was just doing some research and came across this http://www.pottypark.com/ and was wondering if any of you have or have heard of this and your thoughts? we have a backyard with our house but it is just concrete and flowers so I wasnt really sure what I wanted to do about where to have him go potty.
Anyway here are some pics of him at 4 weeks old:

Hi welcome to the forum.
I have two puppys and my back yard was also a patio area. I bought some out door carpet that looked like fake grass. For some reason my puppys do what I call the pop dance. They like to run back and forth a few times before they go. So the grass was about two feet wide by about six feet. You can even buy a dog litter tray and line it with the same grass to use in the x pin for while you are gone. I didn't think of doing that with the litter tray tell after they were house trained but I think it would work. You would have to hose it of and just clean it. I call it the green way of puppy training no throw away pads!

I like this one better: http://www.rascaldoglitterbox.com/ and plan to order one very soon. (I'm using K-9 grass in a tray now - but like this better because I will be able to use the grate under the grass).

My little guy doesn't "hike his leg" - but some males do and the higher sides would be good... PLUS they have a "laundry bag" and you can wash the grass in a washer when needed.

Your new baby is adorable! I'm from Indiana - so practically a next-door neighbor!

Hi and welcome.

He is SO cute!

We just adopted our 1st Hav back in mid-February. Life hasn't been the same since!

We also have 2 small children & tried keeping it a surprise (unsuccessfully!), but the only reason we told them closer to the pick-up date, is we really wanted to make it a family memory & have them enjoy the excitement of getting a puppy!

Cannot wait to see more pics! Congrats

Welcome Lindsay and Brutus! I'm getting my little pup, McGee, on Friday after a six-week wait so I know how you feel! What an exciting surprise for your children - he is absolutely adorable!

So cute! Great name and he looks so much like him! I am a Miami of Ohio girl, so I have many friends that are Buckeye fans too.

Oh My Gosh! That is such a beautiful puppy! It would be a pity to bestow such a horrifying name upon him. I'll give you some MUCH better ideas...How about Herky...perhaps Hawk...or Hawkeye would be perfect too! Or, I'm sure my brother wouldn't mind if you use his St Bernard's name, Hayden...as in Fry...Oh golly, with all the pressure, my minds gone blank...let me know if you want some more ideas...I'm sure my Dad, Brothers, and Sons can come up with oodles of ideas for you....HeeHeeHee!!!!!!

Stacey, Yogi (Gerty), and Baby Boo
