    i am just adding to what was already said--
    healthy treats for training
    old towels or cotton bath rugs for his crate (easy to switch out and wash)
    i like diaper rash cream for tail pockets and nose ropes
    toys toys toys! if you can find a pet supply warehouse, they will have the best deals.
    puppy shampoo
    hotdogcollars.com has cute clothes and football jerseys
    aquaphor for their noses if they get dry/chapped
    peepee pads
    i use a water bottle that attaches to butler's crate for his water source. i find it far less messy than a water bowl and i don't have to change the water 3 times a day, also the water stays free of contaminants. it looks like this:

    also, a training book to help you train him. i also read "how dogs think" by stanley coven and it was very informative/useful.
    oh, and a camera for pictures!!!!

    Water bottle is a great one, thanks @sheila and also the aquaphor, hadnt thought of that for their noses but it is the best for my daughter so I will be using it from now on for Cutty. (Much better than vaseline for sure!) You have most of the main things I think. Toys but not just toys, chew toys!
    these double ended varieties are what we have and they last a LONG time and the boys love them.

    haha I didnt even notice that it was in kitchen and dining. Your lips even?!? Seriously I know the stuff works wonders for babies but never even tried it for anything else. I will for sure now cuz as good as it is on my daughter I can only imagine what good it is on us and the pups.

    The one thing I can think of and has not been said.....your taking your baby away from his mom and siblings....call the people and see if they will take an baby blanket (or you take them one) and rub it all over mom and siblings let it stay with them and get all smelly from his mom and sibling.... when you bring your baby home he will have some smells that he knows...it will help him.

    One thing I would add is cornstarch for the bully wrinkles. especially since yours has a white face, got to take extra care of them!!

    Camera ready is essential. I have mine always ready to go, yes i carry it room to room either still or video you never know when they are going to do something precious and you'll want to share it with us. Well we want you too, lol.

    Bear's breeder had him on regular puppy chow, since i had done so much research I knew he could have problems so I got pre-emptive and switched him to a quality food right away. I haven't had any problems with his skin or coat so far.
