Well since we already have our Maple girl we were already dog ready but we have spent the last few months getting the kids puppy ready, puppy proofing the kids rooms which we didnt have the first time around, we already have the crates set up in the kitchen and the bedroom, hubby has two chores to do next week when he gets home, a gate for the hall so that the kids can go play with their teeny tiny toys in their rooms safely out of reach of the puppy and a new bottom board for the back gate since the ground seems to have shifted a bit and their is a bit more space at the bottom then their used to be. Of course we have already bought about twenty new puppy toys a very pink cuddly puppy bed that will last maybe a couple months but my daughter loved it lol and a pink and brown plaid crate bed for the smaller crate that will also only be big enough for a few months! Its hard to say no to my excited kids! I think Maple had maybe one pink toy But Miss Acadia is all girled up for sure! lol She will eat raw the same as Maple, same rules for furniture which mean we dont have any lol, crate trained just like Maple, already signed up for puppy classes which doesnt have a firmed up start date yet, my girls are already starting to help scoop which is awesome!!!! lol They have been practicing training with Maple which is fine by her, she loves the treats, I told them it wont be as easy with the new puppy, we had a friends puppy come stay for the weekend which was great practice for them, I highly recommend that to people with little kids. I will have the brunt of the night time trips at first except for when hubby is home we will all do it during the day and hoepfully it all goes well, I have a feeling it will be really different with kids this time instead of it being just me and hubby when he was home last time, just not sure if it is a good different or a scary different lol. Just wish I was close enough for a puppy visit!
