We are getting a puppy!!

Hi friends!!

Life can be a real adventure sometimes. With the ups and downs the past few weeks I am so excited to announce that Paul and I are getting a PUPPY!!!

We have been wanting a dog for a long time, but wanted to wait for the perfect time and here we are!

We will be picking up our little guy next week weekend from Lancaster, PA. The dog we picked out is the cutest little Jack-a-Poo puppy that we will be naming Clyde.Ever since we started talking about getting a dog we have wanted to name it Clyde.

Also, since we will be getting him in a few short days I have been shopping like crazy to get everything he will need.

From what I read online these are the top 10 essentials every puppy needs.

Top 10 Puppy Essentials

  1. Food for Puppies
  2. Teething treats
  3. A Crate
  4. A book on How to Train Your Dog
  5. Toys πŸ™‚
  6. Bed
  7. Collar and Leash
  8. Toothbrush
  9. Brush
  10. Shampoo

Here is what Paul and I have gotten so far for Clyde.

    If you have a heated pack, like those ones filled with rice, those can be really helpful for the first couple of miserable nights in his crate. (I wish someone would have told me this sooner when we had our puppy!) It’ll make him feel like he’s bundled back up with his puppy siblings again. It made all the difference for us! Throw in a couple of you & your husband’s socks and he’ll be on his way to crate trained in no time! Good luck – having a puppy is SO much fun!! (and tiring! hah!)
