So you’re getting a puppy …
This is a very exciting time in your life. I remember going to pick up my first puppy a few years ago. I’m not talking about my childhood dogs (even though I loved them very much). But I’m talking about my first puppy as an adult. The little puppy who relies solely on me for care and no one else. The little puppy I worry about every minute I’m not with. The little puppy who sleeps with me every night and get’s me through tough times. His name is Diego. Isn’t he a cutie?
That’s a picture of Diego when he was just a baby! Now that he’s two I refer to him as my little man. Words can’t even describe how much I love my little man. Okay … before I get too off track, let’s get back to your new puppy!
Before you pick up your little one, there are a few things you will need to get from the pet store. Some of the items on our “new puppy checklist” are more important than others. However, I recommend picking up all of these items for your fur baby.
