    Default Tate will be here soon...

    So the plan is for me to pick up Tate this Saturday afternoon from the breeder's house. I'm excited, nervous, happy, scared...and can't believe i'll be bringing him home finally!

    It's been about 30 years since i've had a dog but i'm feeling really ready to become a mommy to my baby bully. I'm hoping that my brother will be able to go with me when i pick Tate up; the ride is 80miles one way so i think i'd feel better if someone came along. Are there any key items i should bring with me for the car ride? my friend loaned me her cat carrier which i thought i could put the puppy in, and i know the breeder will be giving me a care package of some sort for the little guy...i don't know, any thoughts for making Tate's long drive home as comfortable as possible for him (and for me!)?

    I am excited for you. Don't forget water. Maybe some toys to chew on. Towels just in case he has an accident. And a camera so you can post photos on here asap.

    Always with me

    AWE!!!!! There is nothing better than bringing home a beautiful baby bullie !!!!!! When we had to drive without someone there to hold them, we used a laundry basket filled with soft blankets and soft toys. We also brought along a roll of paper towels and some bottled water in case of an accident.
    Good Luck!!! Can't wait to see all the pictures

    Yes...I think it was all covered in the things listed above. Paper towels are a MUST! Oh...and when making potty breaks...DO NOT USE THE REST AREAS!! You can pick up illness at places like that. I would stop at like a fast food place that had grass...and let them go potty...You want to protect this lil' fella until he's fully vaccinated. Which means...being over protective. Parvo is a horrible illness that is being seen a lot lately all around. And something you don't wish to deal with. So...I would not take the pup to the pet store either...just use caution until fully vaccinated. Though it's hard to not show off...but it is safer. If you do take him...don't set him down on the ground...keep him in your arms or in the grocery cart.

    Sounds like your going to have a wonderful exciting drive home... I hope your brother is able to go with you, as I could imagine the temptation to watch, check and adore your baby while driving.

    Congratulations! I agree with @cadillactaste, no potty breaks at rest stops for baby Tate. I'd make sure I had a large chicken flavored Nylabone for some good chewing! Travel safe!

    Those Nylabone keys are AMAZING! When they reach the back of the mouth where other toys don't reach...something to think about later on...when picking up more toys.

    I'm so excited for you! Bet you won't sleep much tonight! I'll bet Tate will probably sleep most of the way..Belly licked the truck window for about half the trip home then went to sleep the rest of the way.
