Hereís a different approach. Take a trip you have always wanted to do because once the puppy arrives, you wonít want to leave him/her! Take puppy pictures with you to gaze at while traveling to help you think about what awaits you. If an away trip is not an option, do things that you might not want to do once the baby arrives, like loud parties or loud music or a day at a museum without having to think about getting home before he/she has an accident!
Seriously, once the puppy does arrive, you will still be able to live your life, but things may become more complicated for the first few months while he/she is a very little, needy baby. Overnights will be particularly challenging because you wonít probably trust anyone other than another family member or a very, very trusted friend or known caregiver to take care of your precious little, charming but mischievous puppy...certainly not a total stranger who hasnít had a full FBI background check and fingerprinting, canine CPR certification, (ok, I am getting a little carried away here, but you get what I mean.).
