View Full Version : Getting my puppy tommorow!!

24th April 2007, 08:31 PM
Well its been a long wait but I will finally get to pick up Waffles tommorow from the breeder's house!! Ive visited a couple of times already and its been great!1 I just want to fast forward thru today so that I can hurry up and see her!!!

Ive spent the last 3 days just literally "puppy proofing" the house. Its amazing how much clutter gets accumalated when your living with 5 other guy housemates!! But is there any last minute tips or anything I should be prepared for when the new pup comes home? Also another question i have is how to introduce my pup to the other dog we have in the house? Any info is much appreciated! Cant wait for tommorow!

I completely understand, the last day is the hardest! At least you have gotten in some visits. I was supposed to go visit my pup 3 years ago before I picked him up and the breeder called the day of our visit hysterical because her favorite uncle had just died. Understandably, nothing much I could say so I had to wait until pick up day. Then that day (Valentin'es) it was one of the rare ice/snow days we get in Dallas and she called to see if I wanted to reschedule pick up because the roads were back. I was like "NO! I will walk out there and get him if I have to!" Good luck, can't wait to see pictures

thanks I will definently post pictures when I get her tommorow!!

Ok this might be a dumb question but I heard that to reduce tearing in the eyes you can feed the dog bottled water? Is that true? Also should it be cold cold water or just room temperature water?

how very exciting!!!!!! congrats!!!

re: tear staining and bottled water... i didn't know that! funny b/c we've been giving Maggie bottled water anyway. Well, she still has tear staining.... so now that iI've read what you posted, I'm not sure if it's lessened b/c of the water or maybe the water doesn't have a significant effect, since she still has the stains. Anyway, we're using Angel Eyes (read a post about it on this board -- do a search to find out more!). I also heard that FourPaws has a solution that works well too.

well, good luck w/ bringing home Waffles!! I absolutely love the name!! :rah::rah::rah:

Tee hee!! You are in the nesting phase!!! ;) I sanitized and cleaned the entire house before Zoey got here. It was a litte obsessive...:v*cuum:

I haven't heard anything about the bottled water and tear staining...but I just wipe them off with a warm wash cloth every evening after my kids eat and none of mine have stains. High quality food makes a difference too, but tearing is a breed trait so controlling it is the biggest priority. (contact solution helps too!!).

Introducing the pup should be a slow process. Make sure the two are supervised ALL THE TIME when together, and also make sure the other dog can have quiet alone time away from Waffles when it has had enough. Good Luck and I can't wait to see pictures!! :luv: :luv:

wow that's great news!!! Congats!..sorry never heard about the bottled water to get rid of staining??? i used to just use warm water..but when it really stains i just use some saline solution on a cloth and it gets it off really nicely. Cant wait to see lots of pics of Waffles!
