Well, we are finally picking up our puppy next Saturday and absolutely cannot wait :love-eyes:. We have got a crate, a bowl and a harness (for the journey home) so far and are planning a trip to the pet shop next week. We are not at all sure what essentials or fun items we will need - toys (rope, ball, squeaky bone...???) bedding, treats, toiletty-type things (?) etc. I don't want to buy anything we won't use but I certainly want him to feel at home and have plenty to keep him happy when he arrives. If anyone has any suggestions, the more specific the better, I would love to hear from you.
