So, per the above 2 posts...stock up/recharge those camera batteries

Have a wonderful trip, take care!


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
- Tolkien

I would probably make sure the breeder doesn't feed her before you take her in the car, less of a chance of her getting car sick. She's so cute btw, she looks just like my little Bailey did a couple weeks ago when we picked her up. To bad you aren't closer they could have had a play date!!

Oh, be sure all the wires in your house are tucked away as Bailey keeps trying to get them in our house!

Good luck and enjoy! This is my first puppy and she's so cute and I love having her around.

I already purchased one about 3 weeks ago but it is looking kinda small right now. Any advice on this? Thank you. = )

I wouldn't be too worried about it being too small. I thought the one we got (which I believe was a size small) was going to be to small and it ended up be waaaaaaay to big for her. The smalled notch was even too big for her, but she has just about grown into it now 2 weeks later. Don't worry, whatever happens it'll be fine!! Enjoy the puppy, ours has finally settled in and very comfortable to do whatever she pleases in the house now.

It's pretty helpful to put a cheap, clear shower curtain anywhere where the puppy peeing might upset you for a few weeks. I always put a shower curtain under each crate at first and under a blanket in the car.

Definitely get as much rest as possible! That little fluff ball will tire you right out and won't always want to sleep when you do!
