Today we are going to go shopping for puppy stuff! We have been busy the last few days but this morning we realized we miss Thelma Lou and wish we could go visit her again. I do not want to drive the breeder nuts so we'll wait until next week, but to satisfy our puppy need we are going to go shopping.
Kind of feel like I'm preparing the nursery.....

Well, we are stocked up on Bitter Apple spray and Nature's Miracle, and lots of toys. I couldn't bite the bullet on a crate, though. I just can't make up my mind on whether we will always crate her or just when she's small. A crate is going to take up a LOT of space and as we live in military housing, space is at a premium here.
A question: what size of hollow Kong toy did you all buy? A small one for under 20 lbs and then just plan on buying the next size up soon, or did you just go with medium (15-35lbs, I think)?

I got all three sizes. I understand about the crate size but I am too fearful to leave her unattended when I am not at home. I wouldn't want to lock her in a bathroom either. I'd be afraid she'd hurt herself. Perhaps you can buy a baby gate? That might work just the same. You are lucky to be able to have three pets on post there. We were only allowed two in our other homes. That is part of the reason we live off post. I hate all the rules! LOL

Thankfully, we should be able to work it where someone can stay home with her most of the time when she is little. Except for church, I guess. I am hoping that when she is bigger she can be left alone in the kitchen with baby gates. If she doesn't chew up the cabinets....

But I honestly just can't figure out where a big giant crate would fit on either the first or second floor. I guess in one of the bedrooms upstairs, but not while she is little because of the house-training. And there is plenty of space downstairs, but it would require a steep hike up either the cement steps to the back yard (15 or so) or the winding ones to the main floor, and I've read about how stairs are so bad for their hips....

Here's our little guy!!! We spent six hours driving to visit him, but it was so worth it! No official name yet...stay tuned

He is just wonderful. I held him for quite a while and as soon as I set him down, he was back at my feet wanting to be held. All of the puppies are precious, but he seemed to be the friendliest. And the biggest! I've been affectionately referring to him as Little Chunk

We also found out he can come home earlier than expected, in 13 days! Let the countdown begin! We can't wait til he's home.

he is really gorgeous! We found out we can bring ours home early too but I have to see if I can set up a new vet appointment. If I can't I might have have to wait to the original date.
He has huge paws!

Aww yay! We're still keeping our original vet appointment, his six week shots will hold him over and he's getting dewormed the day before we pick him up.

Yes he's a big boy! His dad is on the larger side of the standard so I think that's who he takes after!
