I bought everything the weekend before for both of them. I ended up buying all these toys for Summer only to get her home and realize she doesn't play with toys.

I started as soon as I found out? I have 6 months, which is awesome. I can get a little at a time. Stuff like crates and xpens I get to wait until I find good deals, not like people who get them at my work and are forced to pay full price because they have the puppy NOW! lol

I don't plan on getting all that many toys and such until she comes home and I can figure out what she likes. But when I see cool stuff on clearance and such, yeah, I'm gonna buy it!

More than anything right now I am listing. Lots of lists!

So far I've only actually purchased a disc for her

I think as soon as we put a deposit down on Juno (at 2 weeks old) is when I was like I'M BUYING PUPPY STUFF NOW! I didn't even have a job at the time so the money I had was the ONLY money I had, but I didn't care! I loaded up on toys and bought her a pretty collar and ID tag. We bought a crate pretty early on too. Food we didn't get until like a couple days before she came home.

Next time around I'll go crazier. I didn't know much back then (even though I thought I did) so I didn't buy treats or really anything to chew on. Just some cutesy toys.

Always! What kind of question is that?

Even worse, I have baby toys from the kids that I've saved not totally in case there is/was a number three baking in my oven, but because they'd make good puppy/litter toys. There's a bee that plays music and is on a roller, so if it's bumped or tapped it goes off, lights up and so on, and is really really cute.

How's that for sad?

I'm excited about a new puppy but I don't really buy puppy stuff before he/she is taken home. Except for most of the toys, I have kept the stuff used by my other dogs while they were still puppies so I usually let the newbie use the old things for a while. I buy the new pup's things when I already have a rough idea on the things he would prefer.
Everything I know, I learned from dogs.

Mom walked into my apartment the other day and said, "Wow. You sure have a lot of dog stuff for not having a dog." LOL I have all of my leashes, training collars, spare collars, treat bags, etc. hanging from my coat rack.

I've been hoarding dog stuff for quite some time now. I have leashes, collars, a crate, a bed, and dishes all just awaiting a puppy. I started keeping spares of things and such when I realized I normally end up with a foster of some kind every year or so, so I didn't have to keep going out and buying things for the foster.

I didn't dare buy anything until I was 100% certain he was coming home.

I would, but I'm not 100% yet on what dog I'll have next. I want a Whippet. A Whippet will be my next breeder dog no doubt. But if I found a dog in rescue or somehow another dog came into my life, I would have all those things and might not be able to use them depending on age/size. So I'll probably wait til I find a breeder/litter to hoard. Otherwise (if its a rescue) I'll probably just get stuff right before or even after I get said dog.
Don't fear tomorrow.
