Waiting for the puppy to come home is soooo hard! Use this time to get all your supplies in order and rest up. There may be some sleepless nights ahead!!!

Oh My Dog, that isn't a real dog, that's got to be a stuffed animal. Who couldn't fall in love with that face!

Tweety, now the unimaginable fun and your work, and lots of it, begins! We need for you to keep in frequent contact with the Forum and give us regular updates as you work through the challenges ahead of you. HavaDaddys are in the minority on HF, but there are still a few of us. I can tell you, given that you have shared your personal 'situation' at home, that you need to be capable of taking 100% responsibility for Dory for the foreseeable future. That means grooming, potty runs, clean up of the messes, taking her for Vet visits, getting up in the middle of the night if necessary.....the whole enchilada is YOUR responsibility until everyone in your household gets onboard.

If your daughter and DW are agreeable, you should encourage them to post on HF too. We are here to answer questions, hold hands when necessary, share the frustrations, and always provide understanding commiseration. I don't think there is any obstacle that has not been confronted by one Forum member or another that hasn't been overcome. Lots of experience here with members who are willing to help.

By all means, don't bring Dory home and then disappear from the Forum. I hate it when that happens, we now have a vested interest in you and your family.

Here is a brief list of what you need to purchase in the next couple of weeks:

- sturdy crate for sleeping
- pad for bottom of crate
- exercise pen (ex-pen)
- shampoo and conditioner (mild is best)
- selection of brushes and combs (select a quality brand like Chris Christianson, expensive but worth every centavo)
- a 5 foot leash, collar, and harness (absolutely no 'choke chains')
- about 6 'squeaky toys', balls, and tug toys, just for starters
- a good quality food (you don't need 'puppy food' and avoid kibble food if possible)
- stainless steel food and separate water bowls
- investigate the nearest 'puppy kindergarten' class in your area
- a couple of books like Crate Games and others can suggest more
- develop your sense of humor, you're going to need it!

That's just a start. Others on the Forum will give you more ideas. Try to get the whole family involved in selecting these items, it really increases the bonding between family members and your new Dory.

Now get busy, you've got work to do.

Dory is adorable! Congratulations! I couldn't have said it better than Ricky Ricardo. You definitely need to prepare even as you celebrate. There is lots to learn and share. You are most welcome to ask any questions that you may have, otherwise i wish you all the best with your new buddy! Keep us posted!
