Flying out on Saturday

So this is it! I will be flying out on Saturday to pick up my newest addition to the family! I am so excited (and yet a little bit nervous) and can't wait to have him back home.

I just wanted to run by all of you savvy Havanese owners the things that I will be bringing with me on the flight (it's only 2 hours) to see if there's anything I've missed:

Sherpa bag
2 Pee pads
Paper Towels
A toy
A blankie (not sure if I need this since it IS summer - hmmm)
A towel to rub on his littermates and mommy

Should I bring any treats or anything like that? I wasn't sure about this...

I have already gotten a vet apointment (on Tuesday) and I'm signed up for Puppy Classes (they start Aug. 22nd). When I called to sign up for the class (it's clicker training which I'm SO excited about), I told the woman who runs the school that he's a Havanese and then SHE was excited! She said that these little guys learn really fast and that they are so much fun to teach! I guess my little one is already all set up for success!

I also think I've bought way too many toys, but I'm trying for NO furniture/unwanted objects getting chewed on. I also have a bunch of conditioner/spray/shampoo based on our own Kara's recommendations.

Sorry if this post seems like it's pretty worthless, but I am SO EXCITED and needed to share my puppy obsession with people who would understand (I hope ).

Here are two more recent pictures (they were taken about 4 weeks ago, though) for you guys to enjoy!

I'm SO excited for you! Sounds like you've covered it all, but I'm far from the expert. I do know there is no such thing as too many toys. Shadow has so many we rotate them. Every two weeks she thinks she's gotten all new toys, since she's forgotten about them from the last time she had them to play with.

Hope you have a safe, smooth trip. We'll be eagerly awaiting news and pics!

Maybe bring a Clock to simulate the heartbeat of the mother. I hear that helps sometimes although it may be unecessary. I guess you didn't include food in there because it's really an item you would not have to list because we would all assume you had food anyway...

Maybe bring a hot water bottle as well for the motherly reasons... These are things I read are good to have even if you dont need them. some treats might be good to have. What are you bringing your little Hav back in? the Sherpa Bag or do you have a crate??


P.S. Love the Pics

Let us know how your Hav responds to the flight.... I always thought that a little hav would have a fit in the air since they can sense the danger of things and the uncertainty.

Have a Safe Trip....

Good Call Julie....I like those ones as well especially for rear end clean-ups. They smell really good too. I wonder if perhaps a Digital Camera to document the whole Hav-in flight process would be in order....I'm sure she'll have that for sure. Can't wait to see the pics..
