Operation 'Puppy Pick-up'

July 20th, 2007, 09:08 AM
OMG!!! I am sooo excited! I could not sleep last night! We are picking up our puppy this evening, and I have been doing the great count-down at work...I have already driven everyone nuts :D

We spent all of last night 'puppy-proofing' our place. I think we are all set, we picked up 2 bags of kibble (1 of his old stuff + 1 of a better quality, we will mix them for now to make the change). Got some puppy treats, lots of toys, a cage.

Our cat however, was staking out all the new stuff and wondering what was going on...

We have an appointment next week at the vet & we will be starting puppy school soon after :thumbs up

i'm doing the happy dance!!

:D My cat has been around dogs before, nad dosnt mind them if they dont bother with him...he dosnt particulaly like them though :fingerscr He'll probably put his new 'brother' in his place in no time at all.

I'm getting a dobie, and the last dobie I had I got as a puppy...what a handful but lots of fun at the same time.

Five and a half hours to go...

Congratulations and looking forward to some pics of your little dobie. :thumbs up

Brianna- Congratulations. Have a wild and crazy night!!!! So exciting. Can't wait to hear how you are making out. GOOD LUCK

How exciting. Can't wait to see the pics.

So you've had him for 5 hours now......where's the pics? :laughing: :D

July 21st, 2007, 05:19 AM
Ok, I've had him for 10 hours now...I can only post some pics once I get some sleep. I got a whole 3 hours of sleep last night :eek:

Somebody please tell me the crying all night in the crate will stop?!?!?!? This is the first time I have ever crated a puppy.

The pup & the cat has been introduced...well, it was more like an open paw batting the pup in the face :laughing:

will posta few pic just as soon as I can take a little nap...

July 21st, 2007, 05:35 AM
Yes..the crying will stop..Where is the crate? Is it close to your area for sleeping? Usually they adapt better if they are closer to you..Dont give in!! Your pup will learn that the crate is a safe place! Yeh! puppies are so much fun!


July 21st, 2007, 06:37 AM
Congratulations on the pup. Hope we get a look at him today.

Can't wait for a Dobie puppy-pic...:dog:
I know nothing about pups and crates,but I assume he is used to beeing with his littermates and is simply lonely,maybe a big stuffy would help:dog:

July 21st, 2007, 07:59 AM
Yup...the crying will stop. Meanwhile, just to deaden the noise a bit, a good pair of ear plugs will help :thumbs up :D

How exciting! A little puppy! :highfive: Can't wait to see pics! Congratulations!

Like Winston and Hazel said "the crying will stop" and you'll thank yourself later that he is crate trained. It really helps if you can put the crate close by your bed at night. :)

Congratulation on the new family member ! Can't wait to see pics (lots of them please , I won't settle for only 1) :D

Now that I have caught up on the lack of sleep, I want to put up some pics of our new puppy. I already uploaded them to my computer, now what?

July 26th, 2007, 08:51 AM
