Talking I am getting a Puppy!!!!

We are getting a new Hav puppy in a few weeks!! . THey are from a rescue group & are in quarantine in a foster home for 3 weeks. They are about 8-10 weeks old. I am soooo excited & nervous . It has been over 20 years since i had a tiny puppy so I will be probably asking TONS of questions. It looks like i will be flying. Can anyone show me a picture or website of a good travel bag to put the pup in? And any travel advice(Catherine!)?
Also i would like to know if anyone has a pic of their ex-pen/pee area set up? I can bring the pup with me a few days a week to work, but not every day.
I dont know if i will be getting a boy or girl yet. They will help me pick one with the best temperment. And NO-I DONT HAVE PICS YET!!
I will keep you posted!!

Shannon,

That's GREAT news! I just knew you were getting the *want a puppy* bug! Everyone needs a trio!

Hmm..I don't think I have any pictures of the xpen set up, but I can explain it. I bought a vinyl remnant from Hancocks Fabric, that was about 6ft X 4ft and put the xpen around it. I had her donut bed, plus another small pink bed that all her toys are kept in, a pee pad, and if needed, I would put her food/water in there. I think the vinyl worked great to keep it easy to clean up spilled water, food, or accidents on the corner of the pee pad. You could also use a vinyl tablecloth from Walmart or someplace.

I also bought a Sherpa bag for travel. There is a really good selection at the Sherpa site. http://www.sherpapet.com/ I researched travel bags alot, but found the standard Sherpa to be the most practical (as far as storage and features).

Is this rescue here in Virginia?

I know you are SOO excited! Getting ready for a puppy is SO much fun! I'm so happy for you.

hugs,
Kara

Great news!
The Sherpa bags are great and should be fine with the airlines. I would just double check with them to make sure.
Good luck!

Thanks everyone. Kara, i have to fly to Cleveland to get them.
I was mainly wondering how much room do you give them in an ex-pen when they are that small? I know it shouldnt be too big or they will pee everywhere.
Do you give them much space to stretch/play? I know they sleep a lot too.
I am trying to hire someone to come & let them out during the day but no one comes out this way. Plus after Kara's exp. with her maid-its hard to trust anyone with our precious furbabies!! My husbands 90 year old grandparents live on the same property but that is too much for them to handle.
