My girl is 1 week old today

Tomorrow I am going to go puppy shopping. We have a crate, farm and fleet had a great sale a week ago on crates, also bought some kongs and a few other toys, but I know we need more.

The countdown has officially begun. We should be picking her up on the 27th, which is perfect, she won't be here for Christmas, which I think I would have asked to wait till the day after if she was ready before...but we are off until the Wednesday after the 1st so will have about a week with her, and then I will modify my hours so that she isn't home alone for more than a couple of hours at a time..Thankfully my job is flexible and I can pick and choose how many and what hours I work. Not looking forward to midnight winter potty breaks, but maybe that will get her to just do her business..

Any way, I'm so excited had to share...

Mayve, we're almost in the same boat. Our pup just turned 4 weeks and we get her around the 14th of December. We are beyond excited. Its funny you said that about your husband, my husband keeps saying (in a loving joking manner) you're outta control every time I bring up something else that I want to teach her, ha ha!
