BREAKING THE BANK: What did you buy today for your Hav?

In the seemingly never-ending pursuit of preparing for the arrival of my new Hav pup, I have managed to exhaust quite the shopping list....

Started by replacing all the chain-link fence in my backyard with heavier gauge fencing due to the old fence having places that could result in attempted escapes!


Tether for keeping a tight reign during house training




Gates to keep pup out of my kitchen (I don't allow my animals in my kitchen...its a pet-peeve of mine)




CC wood pin brush




Carrier for trips to the vet, etc.




Some toys including an order of no-odor bully sticks from www.bestbullysticks.com







Heat pad for puppy transition while in crate







Midwest crate, bed, and a Midwest xpen that attaches to crate










A little educational material




Washable weewee pads

Car seat & harness

Motorcycle gear (yes, my Hav will be a Harley rider)

Whew....thats all I can think of for now. I'm sure I left some things out. Man, this pup is going to be spoiled!!!!

Get used to spending more money on your Hav than yourself!

For what it's worth, I did not have a good experience with washable pee pads. The reason is because Emmie couldn't distinguish them from a bath mat or area rug. I ended up putting away all bath & kitchen mats and area rugs for months, and stopped using the pee pads, and eventually my Hav stopped peeing on soft surfaces. Now I take her outside to pee/poop exclusively; I no longer have an indoor potty solution. But on rainy/wet/snowy days, I wish I could just send her to a potty patch in the bathroom to do her business. Maybe I'll try to reintroduce an indoor solution this winter but not one that utilizes pee pads.

Totally understandable. Without making this a potty-training thread post...I am going to move away from the washable pads, but that is what my breeder trains on so I am going to initially use them to avoid as many messes as possible. And I work 3rd shift without the possibility of coming home in the middle of my shift so I have had to create a little puppy-haven with the crate and xpen in which I will need some form of indoor potty system for him when I'm gone. I'm looking at the Ugodog...I've heard good things....but I figured I'd transition him over to that eventually....baby steps. What do you think?

I break the bank with regular acupuncture for Sam. Years ago my late husband used to joke that I wouldn't let him buy a new shirt, but our golden, Molly, was getting hydrotherapy.

I went online to shop for a halloween costume for Riley. I found one I liked but the price was over $50.00. I thought to myself "who in their right mind would spend that much on a dog costume." Then I saw it was sold out! But I did buy him a costume, just not that one.
