Puppy Checklist

Today I received a weekly update email from my puppy's breeder. The pups are already 4 weeks old, and in a few more weeks, my little guy will be ready to come home.

Since I know that the unexpected can always arise, I want to make sure I'm prepared for the little guy to arrive well in advance. To begin, I've compiled Puppy Checklist. I want to  make sure that I have all the necessary supplies in place for his arrival.

Puppy Checklist:
1. Puppy Food
2. Leash and collar
3. Crate
4. Bed
5. Toys
6. Chewing bone
7. Shampoo
8. Grooming supplies
9. Treats
10. ID Tag
11. Vet appointment

I'm probably missing something (all suggestions are welcome!!) but I feel like it's a pretty good start...  I can't wait to pick him out in a couple of weeks!


  1. What about a name for the little guy??? Can't wait to visit so I can check out your new digs & meet the pup when he arrives :) XO!

  2. His name is... Figment. It just popped in my head one day when I was thinking of names. Figment was always my fave Disney character. He's the purple little dragon from Epcot. Lol.. my poor dog, named after a Disney dragon.. ha! I can't wait for you to come visit!! xo

  3. Getting a pup is so exciting!! The only thing I would suggest is to not feed him puppy food. It is usually very high in fat. Most breeders recommend using regular adult dog food straight away. When we got Moose he got kibble softened with some water and a tablespoon of canned meat. Apart from that I think you are all set!

  4. You will need solution to clean up after his inevitable accidents. Nature's Miracle is a good one.

  5. Thanks for the suggestion, Fiona! Theodora, I'll definitely need some of that.. Thanks for reminding me!
