New puppy!!

Luci and I are adding to our family! Two new puppies will be arriving Sunday one is for my daughter's family. My much loved Luci is almost 8 years old and I decided that it was time to get a puppy while I am still young and able enough to make it through puppy training. 😬 My husband died in May and it has been a bit lonely around here for us. That is about to change! It is probably not the best timing weather wise the forecast for Thursday night is 19 below zero. Hopefully, some moderating by Sunday.
They are coming from Boise my granddaughter is bringing them with her by air when she comes home from Boise State for winter break. I promised my breeder that I would keep the puppies together until they are 10 weeks old which means four more days. Picture me in my full length down coat and a flashlight out in the backyard waiting for the big events to take place.
I sure hope Luci likes her. I bought a cushy dog bed large enough for two. I would appreciate any advice on helping them to learn love each other.

Awww. Good for you! My obedience instructor says she actually PREFERS winter puppies, because they train faster... not so much stuff to sniff out there, and they'd rather get it done and get back inside once they figure the routine out!

My only winder puppy was Panda, and she was already pretty well litter box trained. I also found the following the older ones out to do their business also helped her figure out what to do outside!

Congratulations on the newbies! Look forward to hearing how they're doing. Pics would be great too!!
Ditto was four when we got Phoenix. It took him a few weeks to accept Phoenix and now they are attached at the hip. Btw that was 6 years ago!!

Mom to Phoenix too

Congrats on the new babies to you and your daughter! Rexy joined us in November last and it worked out though our NC winter in comparatively mild. He does still prefer to use his Ugodog potty tray to poop when the ground is wet or it's really cold. Remember to give Luci lots of attention, positive praise and treats when she shows nice attention to the puppy and help both the puppy and Luci to spend time alone as well as with you or each other.

... And make sure Luci can get away from the little one when he's too much. And he WILL be! Even if he seems sweet and quiet in the first few days, before long, he'll be piercing her ears and hanging from her lip. Don't insist that she put up with it... separate them with a gate or put him in his ex-pen when he gets to be too much.

Thank you to all who replied with helpful comments.

Tomorrow is the big day that the puppies fly from Boise to Billings with my 20-year-old granddaughter. She went to see the litter last week and is in love. She says the one the breeder has chosen for me is the smallest, the sweetest, and the one that always comes when she's called! Sounds perfect for an old lady!
We have been having record-breaking weather 20 inches of snow and 23 below zero last night. That does not take into account the wind. 😱 Thursday I shoveled three times for 45 minutes each and then another 20 minutes later and then I gave up! Between 5:30 and 7:00 PM It snowed another 5 1/2 inches and Friday morning my son came to my rescue with a snowblower. I have not been out of the house since Tuesday.
Believe me I am praying that all will go well tomorrow with no delayed flights.

Wow!!! I won't complain about OUR weather!!! Fingers crossed foryou! At least with the pup traveling with your granddaughter, you know she will be properly cared for and you don't have to worry about her safety sitting on the tarmac!

First, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. However, how exciting to get some new babies! We were down to 13 degrees a couple of days ago. I can't even begin to imagine what 23 below would be like! I would think your eyeballs would freeze! Can't wait for pictures!
