Peanut is coming on Friday...

I can't believe it's already here. He'll be a couple days shy of nine weeks. Here's his six-week-old pic again until I get some new ones.

The kids and I went and picked up a few grooming supplies, food rec'd by the breeder, and some toys and we're heading out to get the playpen. Anything else I need right now that I'm not thinking of?

People have been saying "Are you crazy??" when they find out we're getting a puppy this week. Kind of unnerving, lol.

My daughter has been reading up on grooming and housebreaking and my grandmother has said she'll come by to help babysit while I work(home office) and the kids are at i think we're pretty prepared...

thanks for listening

So exciting! What a dollbaby.

Do you have a crate for Peanut? Also, you might want to get a water bottle, probably not the dog size, but the biggest small animal size for a puppy. Pee-pads, Nature's Miracle or other deodorizing cleaner, small wipes for small areas - like pre-moistened eye wipes, or Natural Bath wipes.

Have you seen the threads with the puppy ex-pen/crate/pee-pad set ups? Just make sure you have everything in there!

I'm so excited for you. Can't believe the time has gone so fast . . . at least for me. Tak lots of pictures when Peanut comes home. I'll be anxiously waiting.

Peanut is beautiful !
ohhh, the waiting ! I went to the pet shop or shopped on-line everyday while waiting for Henry! I even bought a gift for his Mommy!

All those folks are jealous by the way, they all really want a puppy . . .they are thinking IWAP.

kisses to Peanut ahead of time!

We ran out and got a few more things and what a suprise to see all the nice responses

Oh, yeah, we got a collar and leash. is a harness better? the breeder said to have some pee pads for when we pick him up at the airport so we do have a package of those. but I'll get those wipes. thanks for that tip

I am opting to do the pack and play instead of the x-pen and then we'll upgrade him to our mudroom ( 6X8 room) when I know that I can trust our girl chloe with him. do you think that's a good plan?

I'll definitely post lots of pics. thanks again!!!
