Bringing puppy home...

Tomorrow we will be bringing our new puppy home. I'm gathering all the things I'll need for the trip...plastic kennel, wee wee pads, toy, some treats, water, towels, plastic bags, leash and collar...anything else I should bring with me? What should I be getting from the breeder when I leave her house? I know she said she'll provide me with some food the puppy has been eating, a toy he and his littermates have played with, and a schedule of his vaccinations. Anything else in particular I should expect? I know that once we meet the puppy that all we'll want to do is just hop into the car with it to bring it home, so I want to be prepared and not forget anything while I'm there. Of course, once we are home we will post lots of pictures.

Thanks,
Andmmy

Congratulations! It sounds like you have everything covered for the trip. Once you get home make sure to have Lots of chew toys on hand, Natures Miracle for accidents and a nice warm blankie to line the crate with (our puppy loves to burrow under his).

And maybe a soft blanket to put on your lap for him for the way home.

I would plan a couple extra towels and a plastic trash bag just in case of the barfies. Some puppies get carsick and it's nice to have some clean towels. I don't remember if you said who the breeder was but I would think you'll get a sales contract/guarentee. Have you discussed whether you will recieve the AKC paperwork to complete his registration or is it in the contract that you'll recieve it once you show signs of spay or neuter? Is puppy microchipped yet? If so, you would get paperwork with his chip number and a form to register his chip too. Hav fun!

Yes, it has been a LONG time coming. I remember telling my daughter "seven more weeks till we bring the puppy home!" Can't believe the day has finally come!!! Wonder if I'll be able to get a good night sleep or not. I know my kids will probably be up at the crack of dawn and beg to go to the breeder early.

Well, the exercise pen is all set up with a bed, wee wee pad and toys. The crate and supplies are all ready for the car, the camera is charged and in my bag, and after breakfast we'll be off to pick up our new puppy. I can't wait!!! I just hope the puppy will settle nicely in the crate for the ride home otherwise the kids will surely fight over who gets to hold him for the ride.
