DD if you have a Costco around they have the best priced dog beds around! I think they are 20.00 they have the cedar chips to maintain odor and they have a washable cover!

OMG I just thought...how are you going to walk 3 dogs??? Your gonna need one of those special leashes that allow you to hook up 3 dogs.

Oh and dont forget to buy those lint removers!! your gonna need those! :thumbs up

Dog Dancer February 2nd, 2013 07:06 PM

Yeah I have lots of Costco beds around, actually threw about 3 old ones out last summer. Just found another old one under the back deck, so the cover is in the laundry as I type. I had washed two this morning already. So since finding the other old one, I will just put the two old ones outside in the dog houses. That way if the pups tear them up it's not a big deal. Shadow had some leakage issues with spay incontinence over the years so the Costco beds were the best! Washed them regularly then tossed them every year or so and bought new ones. I always kept the covers though, that way I could take one off (or two as I always did both beds) and put the clean ones on the beds while the others were washing. It was great:thumbs up. For the crates I have towels though, so they can go into the wash daily if need be. Again, if they tear them up, that's okay too.

Second trip to the pet store today. Bought large breed Orijen for the puppies, Taste of the Wild for Halo (the Orijen has chicken and she can't have that), one shampoo for puppies, and two cans of green tripe - $$$.

[QUOTE=Dog Dancer;1053269]Another day another trip to the pet store! Bought their brushes and a new set of nail clippers, a bottle of Nature's Miracle accident cleaner :rolleyes:, one toy. $99.00 :yell: On top of that they did not have the kibble I wanted, nor did I find a shampoo I wanted - well I forgot the shampoo, looked at a couple and then kept on going. Will get that stuff tomorrow. Plus one new dog bed for Halo. I will put one old dog bed out in one dog house, and Halo's old dog bed out in the other dog house, so Halo will get a new bed. The puppies will be crated for a while in the house, so they don't need inside beds yet. They'd probably just eat them anyhow. Have stocked up on old towels.

We went past our butcher's today and picked up a nice bag of chicken back and necks and beef bones for the pups. I offered Halo a beef bone but she was not interested. Got enough for a week of feeding. Free!! Gotta love friends who are butchers!:thumbs up[/QUOTE]

Marty is not interested in beef bone , I brought a small packed and he just played with the bone for a second and said I am done. Maybe you could have some towels with your body odor on them so your puppies can smell you when you have to leave them alone for awhile.

Dog Dancer February 2nd, 2013 10:04 PM

I wasn't very clear about the dog food, it was large breed puppy food.:D My breeder just e-mailed me and said not to give them the chicken necks yet, and to throw out the beef bones:confused:. She said just give them pork riblets for now. I'm so confused. My butcher said beef no pork. The butchers are actually a bunch of brothers and they all feed their dogs raw of course. None feed pork. :wall: Okay. Whatever, will keep on studying....

Barkingdog, yes the puppies will have something that smells of us at night and when we go out, but rest assured we don't leave our dogs often:rolleyes:.

your puppies are very lucky to be getting such a wonderful home.

Are they here yet...are they here yet,,,are they here yet!!!:crazy::laughing:

Dog Dancer February 3rd, 2013 06:01 PM

Not yet.... not yet.... not yet.... :crazy:

One more :sleepy:

The breeder didn't even send me the pics! Dang. She's been busy with a dog show this weekend though, one of her pups got 2 pts. She's very happy.

Thank you Barkingdog, I hope I do well by these two pups. I hope Halo handles it well and turns into a pup herself not some cranky old cow.:D

I hope DH handles it well, I know he will not do well with the chewing and such. If they eat the couch he'll flip. I think the pups may spend a lot of daytime hours outside, and inside training with me at night! Fortunately as spring nears DH spends way more time outside, so that will be good. We'll work it out though. :fingerscr

Got the waybill for the shipping today. WooHoo, is it bedtime yet???

:laughing: :laughing:

DD, no sleep for you tonight. This is so exciting, twice the fun for both of you. :)

Jull February 4th, 2013 08:31 AM

How are you feeling?? are just jumping up and down looking at the clock every 5 minutes? :D

Dog Dancer February 4th, 2013 08:52 AM

OMG I can't believe it's here! Today is the day. I have to go to work first for half a day, then I have Tuesday and Wednesday off. Puppernity leave:D. I was shooting for the whole week but my boss was a no go on that. It's actually really busy at work right now so that's okay.

Well I'll be back - soonish but time will tell. I am praying for a clean cage on arrival, not a poopy one! Lupa apparently weights 12 lbs and Nikki is 17.

Rgeurts February 4th, 2013 09:52 AM

Puppernity leave... :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:
I'm going to have to remember that one!!!
I'm SO excited for you and DH! You know we're going to be waiting, impatiently, for pics!! :D

Dog Dancer February 4th, 2013 10:35 AM

Robyn, you need to pm me or e-mail me your phone number for emergency questions! (I should edit that to say if you are willing...) Oh my goodness, I don't know if I will make it to this afternoon! :crazy: I had to borrow some of the puppies pepto this morning :eek: I think the stress is getting to me too! :laughing:

Rgeurts February 4th, 2013 11:00 AM

LOL... you remind me of the impatient expectant "daddy" pacing in the waiting room!!

I'll pm it to you now! :)

I guess it would be a good idea to bring some towels and plastic bags to be on the safe side. Bring a paper bag encase you hyperventilation. LOL!! I will cross my fingers for a clean cage and puppies. :fingerscr
This is really exciting , I am very happy for the new parents.

Sorry it took so long to get back here. Yikes - double trouble (and poop). The pups travelled well, they arrived with a clean kennel and pooped two blocks away from the airport. Fortunately we were able to pull over and get the dirty towel out before any damage was done to the pups.

They are incredible and everything we hoped for. Lupa is a very bossy little girl, and Nikki is a big cry baby. Both have the runs right now, so we're working on that. Had them straight into the vets and that was all possitive. He checked them over including hips and elbows and it all looks good :thumbs up

Halo is unsure what to think. She growls if they get too close, but she follows them with her tail wagging. If they fight she gets right in the middle to break it up though. Today she was very interested in them, so it was a good sign, she was more involved.

Anyhow, must make this quick. They are both napping right now, I'm posting a pic of them sleeping in the kitchen! Sorry they're pretty big! Nikki saw himself in the mirror twice now, he thinks he's pretty special!:lovestruck:

Jull February 6th, 2013 03:31 PM

I was patiently waiting for pics! :D

They are beautiful!!! :lovestruck:

CsqU4r3d February 6th, 2013 06:05 PM

They are both gorgeous....I am so jealous!! They will keep you busy for a long while to come. Here's to the first of many many pics to OOOHHH and AWWW over.:thumbs up:flirt::dog::dog:

Barkingdog February 6th, 2013 06:28 PM

They sure are gorgeous and so cute sleeping next to one another.

Goldfields February 6th, 2013 06:43 PM

A sleeping puppy is a good puppy IMO, DD . LOL. They look pretty special to me and I think Nikki is going to be magnificent later on. Just keep in mind that if they play hard, they'll also crash hard for a sleep and give you some peace.

growler~GateKeeper February 6th, 2013 09:09 PM

So cute :cloud9: I'm glad Halo seems to be taking things well & is interested in the pups. Breaking up arguments is also a good sign she's accepting them & wants peace in her house :thumbs up

hazelrunpack February 6th, 2013 09:21 PM

They're beautiful, DD! :flirt: [I]whoot whoot!!!!![/I]

Just getting back online now and one of the first things I had to check out was DD's puppy progress! :D

Rgeurts February 7th, 2013 09:13 AM

Oh DD!!! They're just GORGEOUS!!! And Nikki has the same feet and legs as Nookie. He's going to be a beautiful, thick boy :lovestruck: :cloud9:
Lupa has very dainty/delicate facial features, I bet she's going to be a real princess ;)

You know we are going to need [B]many[/B] more pics to make any real
assessments though :D


How's DH holding up to the puppy madness? :laughing: :D

Barkingdog February 7th, 2013 10:17 AM

We need more photos! Pleaseee.. I am :crazy: about your puppies..

Dog Dancer February 7th, 2013 03:33 PM

I will get more pics up soon. Have taken a few, but boy they are busy kids. Both have such distinct personalities. Lupa is taking to housetraining like a star. If you say let's go outside and go pee she runs to the door. Nikki takes that as a cue to squat and pee asap! The biggest issue is with going outside with both of them, it turns into play time rather than potty time. If I wake up in the middle of the night (which I always do) I take them out, and after 10 minutes I normally pick one up to stop the games and let the last one get busy (it's always Nikki who is the holdout). He'll spend 25 minutes outside then go in and poop on the floor :wall:. He'll get there though.

They both have VERY healthy appetites, gave them some apple yesterday for a treat, they loved it. Tonight we'll give them carrots. The vet checked out their hips and elbows and all was good. We're on a roll.

Winston February 7th, 2013 06:34 PM

DD I am in puppy love! They are so beautiful. You are so lucky to have been able to follow their journey to your home. I love the pic of them sleeping.

Sounds like they are showing their personalities. How is hubby enjoying things?

We are so lucky to be able to see them grow up through you!!!! :thumbs up

You know girls learn faster than boys so I guess it work the same with 4 legged kids.

hazelrunpack February 7th, 2013 07:42 PM

That's cuz Gurlz are just inherently superior to Boyz... heheheh

Dee-O-Gee February 7th, 2013 10:09 PM

Oh I'm in heaven with these puppy pictures. :flirt:

You know we could all use daily...okay, maybe weekly pictures of them for at least 2 years! :D

Thank you for sharing and keep em coming. :thumbs up

Okay, just a few pics here to tide you all over. It's hard to get good pics as they hardly slow down!

In the first one the pups are playing with a fuzzy ball and Halo is just keep watch.

Then dad is holding the babies while Halo grumps about having to pose with them!:D

Then Miss Lupa just waiting patiently for Nikki to do his business and get back into the house.
