I am so excited… today we adopt our puppy! (Keep an eye on my Instagram (@roguewavedesigns) for first pictures!) My husband and I have been married 12+ years and this is our first dog together. Growing up we each had dogs, but very different experiences with them. Together we’ve had a cat and for the last number of years children… who have been begging for a puppy. Well, their dreams are about to come true. I’m excited, but I know how much work is coming my way with the little fur ball. So, to make it more fun for me, I got to go shopping with one of my closest friends who has a couple fur-babies of her own to help me figure out what I need and don’t need.
We hit, Home Goods, PetCo and a few other places in addition to Amazon to find what I needed. I learned that their is A LOT of items out there and I look forward to learning more about some of them, but I tried to just stick to the basics… although, I’m pretty sure a puppy life jacket will be showing up for summer! (Any recommendations???) Here’s some of what I got:
Are you planning on getting a puppy soon? In celebration of our little guy, I’m giving away a free download of a puppy supply list. Hopefully this will help you find what you need and be prepared as well. You can download the PDF here.
Some of the items I have were gifts from family and friends. But since I do love to shop and look around, here are some great finds, that I might just be splurging on in the near future!
One of my favorite brands, Kiel James Patrick, just came out with a pet collection that I’m totally lusting over! Here are some of their items and totally worth checking out:
