|Here's new puppy, resting up until he is old enough to go home.|
Although my son is grown and living on his own, I'll get plenty of puppy love. When I mentioned that it wasn't fair to get a puppy and leave it home all day while he was working, well....I opened myself up for this--I'll be taking care of the dog in my home every day while he's at work. Can't say that I'm disappointed. I hope Kelly and Ike will feel the same.
So, what does it take to prepare for a new puppy? Andy and I took a trip to the pet store, and here's what he ended up with:
|Training pads, jingle bells for the door, nylabones, puppy Kong, a stuffed bunny, poo bags and collapsible dog bowl for trips to the dog park, toys, dog food and treats, and of course squeaky tennis balls!|
|Nice comfy dog bed, various collars and leashes (we had extras, including a New York Yankees collar and leash set), bamboo food and water bowls, a crate for in the house, and a carry crate for in the car (we had spares of these to give him.)|
|Puppy exercise pen to keep puppy safe when our son is in the shower or just needs 5 minutes break!|
Did we miss anything?
