    Talking Bringing home baby

    Ok, so, I just have to let my excitement and everything out.
    IM GETTING MY FIRST BULLDOG PUPPY.
    Sorry, like I said I am extreamy happy. I have been talking to a Bull dog breeder for a while, and she has a puppy, ok, realisticly a couple, puppies I just adore. One was thought to be sold, so I was going to go for the pink little girl, but now the yellow girl is up for sale again. So I just have to make my choice, and put down my deposit. I am so nervouse. I havent had a puppy in about 3 years, and never a Bully pup. Im excited, and nervous, and, and, and. Yeah lol Wow. My mind is jumping all over the place. I was looking at getting a pup, but didnt want to raise my hopes in case something didnt work out, but so far everything is falling into place so perfectly, like it's ment to be.
    So, Im wondering what do I need to bring on the road trip to bring my baby home in about 4 weeks? Im assuming a crate, blanky, towels, harness, and lead, Water and water bowl.....Anything else Im missing?
    I am so excited lol

    This is from a thread I started right before bringing my pup home:

    1. 36” Crate, Doggie gate, old towels and blanket for crate, doggie bed for the living room.
    2. A ton of Kong and Nylabone toys and a few stuffed animals.
    3. A collar and leash (forgot the doggie tags but getting those tomorrow).
    4. Brush
    5. Ordered NuVet because apparently my breeder does use it.
    6. Ordered the food he’s on and should get it next week. She’s giving me a 10lb bag when I pick him up.
    7. Snout Soother, Witch Hazel Pads and a 16 oz bottle, Mal-a-Ket wipes and DermaPet Malacetic Otic AP - 16 oz, Cotton balls, Desitin Diaper Rash ointment, Neosporin, Lemon juice.

    Lol, yeah- huge list. But I wanted to make sure I had everything. The truth is, I've used most of the items listed. Bullies require a lot of care, but they're so worth it

    Wow, @Blueberrys Mom provided you with a huge list. I will only add the caution not to take a potty break at a much used rest stop. You don't want to put your baby down on ground frequently used by other dogs until she has had all of her shots--in about 4 + months!

    Thanks guys =)
    It's going to be about 3 1/2 hour car ride for her. Im not sure what size harness to get her, so I was thinking of maybe meeting the breeder at a petsmart, so I can fit her with one there. I won't let her down so she dosent get sick. Should I bring toys on the road trip? A bone perhaps? lol
    Like I said my mind is going about 90 miles a minute trying to figure it all out lol
    Today I have to go home and do some furniture rearanging to fit a crate in my living room lol
    Oh so excitd lol

    I normally would never post but one part of your post caught my eye. Have you been to the breeders to see the dogs? If not walk away. I got suckered into a "breeder" that was 3+ hours away from my house and I never went even though I was willing to make the drive since the "breeder" always had an excuse on why I couldn't come. The to make my drive "easier" she said she'd meet me so I could save on the driving time. In the end it was a puppy mill that I paid a lot of money too and after having issues with my dog (not current dog) she got very mean with me and my wife. After research she had been sued over similar problems.

    Good luck but be careful. Not all people love bullies as much as true bully owners. They just look at the money end of it not the dog itself

    How old is this puppy? Be careful in petsmart if the puppy doesn't have all its shots because they can catch parvo and taking her into a pet store where lots of dogs get to walk around and you don't know if they have their shots or not or if they are carrying parvo, it is a risk. Going through this myself so Im not taking her anywhere!

    jbm45 The first thing she did was invite me to come meet her dogs and her family. I have talked to some people who have added one of her pups to there family and all say good things about them. I understand your worries though. Many years back I got male Yorkie from some one farther away, When I got to her house neither the mother, father, or any of the pups were there, she sent her sone to go get the pup from a friends house, tried to add a sales tax, which she not once mentioned in all the times we had talked. I wouldnt have minded if she had been up front with me, the many numerous times I had confermed with her the amount.
    I don't plan on puting her down on the floor or even in the cart at petsmart, I just want to get a harness that fits lol I know she is going to grow fast. Any specific kinds work best?
    I also have another question, everyone keeps saying to get a 36' crate. Im curiouse if thats hight, length, ot width lol

    Good to know. I wouldn't want anyone to go through what we went through.

    I think our cage is about 36x24x27 I think. Our bulky loves it.
