Cricket is coming home tomorrow!!

And I hope I'm ready! I'm very excited, but nervous as well. I just hope I have everything I need to bring home a new baby. I'm still trying to decide how to start housetraining this time...I've seen some info about the litter box training, and am tempted to do that, but I'm not sure whether that will be easier first, but then more difficult to deal with when she'll be going outside to potty later. I've always been nervous about taking a new puppy outside until they are fully vaccinated (even in my own yard), but for the tzus, I couldn't stand doing the inside thing for so long, so I sucked it up and took them outside.

All that said, I'm just glad that the waiting is almost over! I'll take some pics tomorrow and post them as soon as I can. I'll be picking her up around noon, and then taking her to the vet at 2:30. If her littermates are still there, I'll try to get pics of them too.

Kim, Santos & Brew

Oh puppy pictures, I can't wait. Congratulations and good for you heading straight to the vet. Try not to let the feet get on the floor at the vets either - I'm just such a worry wart.

Congratulations Kim. I'll bet today can't go by fast enough.
Try and get some sleep tonight. You'll probably be awoken for night time potty breaks for awhile.
Have fun with Cricket and post photos when you can.
