I've been trying to source one of these for our pup when he arrives in December. I was thinking of having it shipped to the breeder so it will have his mother & litter mates smell on it. I think somebody else on the board mentioned doing this... is it a good idea?

Problem is I'm finding it difficult to get hold of one. Most places are out of stock and won't have them until the end of November, which means that we might not have it in time. Suggestions anyone?

I got one for Phoebe the time she was neutered and since then she has ripped it to shreds!!!
BUT I held on to the heart beat part of it which you could still use and wrap it around something. You can take mine if you want. Here is a picture....hoopefully

Thanks for the link BrĂ*d. It was gread to read about Phoebe going through the same thing as Tandie right now. Loved the babygro 8)
If we can't get the puppy and you don't mind I'd love to borrow the heartbeat :) Did you get your snugglepup online?

Here's a link to sitstay.com. They carry the snuggle puppy and comfort pup.

found it on poshpaws. They didn't say it wasn't in stock, so hopefully it is! Got some toys and a new puppia also icon_whistling

If Brid still has the heartbeat you could get it put into a stuffed toy. The bear factory in Jervis Street or Dundrum stuff toys there and then so you could bring the heartbeat with you. Their toys are very reasonable. I got a lovely elephant there for Twinkle - she likes her cuddlies but not for cuddling if you know what I mean :roll:

amazon.com has some, and I just ordered one off of ebay! What a clever I idea! I am going to give it to my little stewie who has a tendancy to "nurse" off of his stuffed animals. I bet he will love this!!

Fuzziebear on this board IS poshpaws.com, so you could PM her. :) Or just email her through the poshpaws site and ask. I am sure she can order you one in well in time to collect your pup.

Why not just have the breeder take a dishtowel and put it in the whelpingbox rather than the snugglepuppy? It would potneitally get covered in puppy poo and wee and food and so on if put in with the whole group. Ypu can just put the soft dishtowel in alongside the snugglepuppy.

Most good breeders will always give you something with the scent of the mother/pups. Mine gave me a knotted sweatsock for Jaspar. That's more than enuogh scent to keep a pup happy. :)

I ordered online earlier this afternoon so hopefully she has one in stock :) That's quite a supply of outfits she's got online! I managed to restrain myself to just a small sized puppia and a few toys though :lol:

Dishtowel a much better idea!! I wanted something with the scent but didn't want snugglepup getting ruined either.
:thnx:

We had a little baby blanket my breeder put in Jake's bed at night.

I asked if I could give my breeder something for Maxx to cuddle and she said no need as she always sends a piece of Vetbed home with each puppy. It was big enough to line Maxx's dog bed with, she must buy tons of it!!!!

You could have my snugglepuppy heart if you want. I dare not leave it with Amber who is walking teeth at the moment. Apparently it's much more fun to enthusiastic kill the poor snugglepuppy, or play tug-o-war with it (with Holly on the other end, hallelujah) than it is to snuggle it :lol: :lol:
