Default Any last minute puppy advice? O.o

So, looks as though I will be picking my Siri up this Saturday in Michigan, barring any major complications.

It's earlier than originally planned, but thanks to dumb border-crossing rules it was this weekend or wait another 3 months. I don't want to wait

So this week will be a flurry of buying puppy things (I have NOTHING, except some toys!) and puppy proofing the apartment. I was planning on having at least another whole month, crunch time!

Any words of wisdom would be great, no matter how small they may sound, I haven't had a puppy in 7 years!

Don't panic. That's seriously it. Don't panic if she spooks at something, snarks at another dog, cries the whole first night, etc.

DO. NOT. PANIC.

This is a well-bred, excellently raised puppy and you are more than capable of handling anything she throws at you.

AND POST LOTS OF PICTURES.

I plan on continuing the daily running of Frodo up at the hospital and at the park. If he's super tired he can't be an ass, right?

Good thing I bought a French Press this week, mmmm coffee...

I think I need to leave post it notes all over the apartment that just say Do.Not.Panic. because I'm sure I will at least a couple times the first few weeks

take lots of pictures
remember, it'll be fine
she won't stay a puppy forever (this can be said during good, or bad times)

Its natural! everything will just be going great and then poop and pee and stuffing will be everywhere and you will be thinking why the hell did I do this?!


Have fun!!!!!! Enjoy the puppy breath! I would love a puppy just for a week and then give it back to someone



Seriously I crate trained every time and there was sooooo much whining, so ear plugs? Lots of chew toys. Don't let them get away with things now you won't later.
