Tomorrow is the Big Day!

Tomorrow is the big day: we will head to North Carolina bright and early to pick-up our Starborn puppy! It is a 4 to 4-1/2 hour drive, but we are expecting rain most of the day, so the trip may take longer. I've got the following things ready to take along:
  • Tagalong car seat
  • harness
  • puppy kong & peanut butter
  • soft puppy toy
  • towels
  • paper towels
  • small rectangular container with pine pellets (I have a litter box at home, but it is a bit large to travel with and the tiny puppy will fit fine just fine in the smaller container)
  • water bowl
  • camera

Am I forgetting anything?

I'm hoping Maccabee will sleep most of the way home. My 10-year-old daughter will be with him in the backseat to comfort him if he awakens.

Any suggestions or advice are welcome.

--Laurie

Small puppies are sometimes prone to car sickness so have changes of bedding and clean-up materials. If the carseat is raised so he can see out, that might make the carsickness worse. Ask about it. But this is SO exciting. Congratulations.

I can hear your excitement. I would not feed much if any as if your puppy is prone to carsickness food will make them worse. Pictures don't for get the pictures!!!!!

I'm rethinking the kong with peanut butter. I'll bring it along and ask Pam.

The pen is set up. All travel stuff is sitting in the car seat. Now, I need to get some sleep so I can get up early and head out. Buti'm too excited to go to bed!

Can't wait to see the new babies this weekend. I hope you do get some sleep because when puppy comes, you might be lacking in that department for the first day or two. Excited for you.
