so, Thursday is the day that my new puppy joins us.

So far, tomorrow I will be shopping for:
Puppy Food
Collare
Leash
Food and water bowls
Toys and chews
Deoderisers
Shampoo and brush

anything I've missed??

I have a small bed already but imagine he'll eventually be sleeping on my bed.

Flea treatment suitable for a young pup.
And one thing I find very handy for dogs of all ages is one of those super absorbent towels. It cuts bath drying time right down.

I'm getting a Miniature Schnauzer. I spent a couple of hours with the breeder yesterday and they are just beautiful.

If he wants to sleep on my bed, he'll have to sort out some sort of an arrangement with the cats that already own that space original.gif

We got a new puppy  a week ago

Puppy training pads are great - I get my from the reject shop so much cheaper than the supermarket or pet store.

Urine off spray to get rid of the smell to aid toilet training

Get a crate for the dog to sleep in. Seriously, you will not regret that purchase, or the ability to put the dog away in its crate from time to time. It also cuts down the potential for roaming and mess overnight by a factor of 1000.
