Okay, that didn’t take long! I called the breeder about an hour ago to confirm that we would love to adopt “Wolf”, the little three year old male chihuahua. We can go pick him up on Saturday, January 3rd 2015. Lots of fun moments ahead :-) Jules the cat is about to have a new little companion. (Whether he likes it or not). I will definitely do my best to make the adjustment for him go as smoothly as possible.
Here are the supplies I have ready to use:
– A white dinner bowl with a wide flat bottom so it won’t fall over. I should have bought a second one for water *duh* So that’s on my next shopping list
– I also got the Water Rover a couple of months ago (blue topped bottle), as well as a blue collapsible water bowl. Both these items are meant to be used while out on the go.
– Then there’s my good old clicker, for training
– As well as my doggie treat pouch, which is to be worn at the hips and will be handy to reward good behavior while training.
I’m obviously missing a few more essentials though. We kinda picked a bad timing for our last minute shopping. Because now we have to get dog food, a collar, a leash, and some toys before Saturday … keeping in mind that tomorrow is New Year’s eve, and the day after tomorrow is New Year, so that only leaves Friday. But oh well, we’ll get it done! I’m not going to buy him a bed just yet. We have tons of large pillows and fleece blankets, so we’ll first see what cozy spots he likes best and then we’ll be able to make a more suitable choice based on his preferences.
I can’t wait to welcome our new little buddy at home :-)
