what else do I need?

Tucker comes home on the 24th...

Here's what I've got so far:
  • Crate
  • Bed
  • Collar
  • Tag
  • Leash
  • 2 Bowls
  • Food
  • Training Treats
  • Posting supplies
  • 20' Training leash
  • Rope Toy
  • Puppy Kong
  • Kong Stuff-a-ball
  • Stuffies
  • Retrieval bumpers
  • Cuz
  • Nylabone puppy chews
  • Puppy-sized coat (it's still cold here)
  • Poop pick-up bags

I'm trying to get everything ready for when he gets home. We don't have a great selection out here, so I order a lot of things online. Am I missing anything?

Carol, I just noticed when I posted after you that we have the same quote. I just saw the quote yesterday when my friend sent it to me and I loved it. Hope you don't mind. I can look for another one.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your Doberman. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

I like the bully sticks--well not me, the puppy likes the bully sticks.
Stack of newspapers or pee pads
My puppy likes his snuggle pal (stuffie with a heart beat)
Big sponge, bucket and cleaner

When do you get your new puppy? How exciting. I couldn't stand it for about the two weeks prior. Do you have pictures yet?

If ya git ta thinkin' yer a person of some influence, try orderin' my dogs around. Cowgirl wisdom.

I found I'm not using her 20 foot leash yet. I have a 6 foot for walks, a 10 foot for trying her to the boyfriends desk... wound up needing two crates because I sleep during the day and he keeps her downstairs in his office with him (works from home) but she needs a crate there... dog beds at every office... and double the posting supplies that I thought.

So you are all set

a whole lot of patience! For posting I use the Johnson&johnson Zonas tape,1 inch thick and unisolve adhesive remover wipes for when you repost. For the kong toy Kaizer,my dobe, does not like the treats that you stuff in it that come with the kong so i put a little peanut butter inside and he goes nuts, trial and error..good luck!

I'm glad you clarified that! I was getting worried. Although some days, I feel as if I could use one to chew on to tame my overwrought emotions!!!!

Xpen.. I use the pen instead of gates. Also, raw marrow bones are wonderful. They don't crack and splinter. Risa LOVES, LOVES, LOVES them. I get raw buffalo bones from a pet store, but our local grocery store sometimes has raw marrow bones too. (They are much cheaper from the grocery store.) Lots of paper towels. If you have carpet, some good carpet cleaner....and lots of it! I really like "Spot Shot."

Well I got the last part of the 'what I need' list - the puppy!

Currently, we're working on crate and potty training. Neither are really something he's interested in. He hates the cold weather, despite his fleece and would much rather potty inside than out in the cold and rain.

He also HATES being left alone, especially in his crate. But he's only been home 24 hours - we're working on it. Wish me luck! He's currently in his crate howling up a storm - I figured now is a better time to practice crating than 10:00 pm, when I have neighbors all around me...

Congratulations on your new baby! It was worth every moment of waiting, right????
Good luck with him. The potty training will eventually work out. In a few years!!!! only kidding!Try to put a radio on low near his crate for company. Maybe throw his blankie into the dryer and have a stuffie for him to cuddle. I am sure that you have already thought of all of this. Good luck. Keep us posted.

ps he is adorable!!!!!!!!!
