AllieMackie Posted November 23, 2008 Report Share Posted November 23, 2008 Hey folks! The time has come. My puppy was born yesterday afternoon. A male tri out of Open parents. I'm so unspeakably happy. And yes, pics as soon as she sends me some! Needless to say, I've now started the eight-to-nine-week Countdown Until Puppy,, so I'm starting to make all those preperations that one must make. Generally, I know how to plan for puppy coming home, I've already done all of the dog proofing of the home and yard that I can think to do (I'm sure puppy will show me when, not if, I missed anything). At this point, I'm making plans and budgeting for vet costs, supplies, etc. When I go pick up my puppy, it will be about a 6-hour drive back home. Of course, any advice anyone can give for that trip and the subsequent making-puppy-comfortable are MORE than welcome, namely BC-specific tips. I will be stopping at least every hour to let puppy walk around, eliminate, eat/drink if it wishes, etc. One question I have is about a collar. I have to provide my own, and I was wondering what size of collar generally fits an eight-week old BC puppy. Should I go for a small dog collar, or should a medium one adjust small enough? Um... yeah! If you can think of any other specific advice, go for it! I'm getting really excited, and at the same time I'm focused on doing things as correctly as I can. Thanks!
