How exciting!? We have been buying a few essentials as we have set our minds on having a doggy, so we need to get things ready. Like a crate to keep her safe and a bed for it. Plus another bed outside her crate. Food and water bowls. Collar and tag or find a place for a tag as soon as we get her. Lead and harness. Puppy ones of course. Lots of toys and dog teddy bears. Puppy pads for toilet training.

Making a Decision And Sticking To It. Over the last few months, we have been talking about getting a puppy. It feels like every hour of every day someone mentions puppies. We have decided up to yet we are having a girl dog and going to call her Mollie! Most importantly, we need to decide on a dog we will all love. 

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!! A lot of plans are to be made!! 

Firstly, Picking A Dog.

Golden Labrador Or Golden. Retriever: 

Picture c/o Pixabay. Firstly. A Golden Labrador Or Golden Retriever. So we thought of a gorgeous Golden Labrador. I adore these dogs.  After reading everything about Labradors and especially how big they grow we don't think this dog is right for us at this moment in time. We would like a breed of dog that is not too big and not too small. Something in between.

Bichon Frise:

When my son is home there will be 6 people in the kitchen at dinner time, it will need to be a lot bigger to get attention. After reading about the Bichon it sounds as though these like lots of attention and she would need more haircut than me! Not fair to me, haha :) Don't they just look adorable with their curls? I can imagine a pink bow in the middle of the hair is adorable?

Now we have decided on the perfect dog for us.

A Border Collier!! 

A dog to have fun with, train up to do all kinds of fun tricks. How cool would it be learning her to do something for a showground event where you see all kinds of talented dogs? Once she has grown big she can also become my new running partner. On the lookout now for that special dog. I have brought her some things, and got her name picked (Mollie) we just need to buy her now!! Do we choose Blue Merel, red and brown, tricolor, or a traditional black and white one!?! I know as soon as we see her she will be the right choice.

Getting Prepared For A Puppy!! How Exciting!? I am now preparing for my house to be puppy friendly because at the minute it isn't!. Buying everything we will need for her. How hard work can a puppy be, because it had been years since we last had one!! Follow Claire's board Dogs on Pinterest. Stop by and see some of my fun puppy pins.
