(I'm sure he doesn't even look like this any more!)
Puppy Day is getting closer! I've settled on Dhali as the puppy name, unless he gets here and I have to change it for some reason. Some people don't like it (my Mom for one), but too bad - it's just like having a 'real' baby, they're are always people that don't like the name.
I saw this on another blog and I thought it was a good idea. I took it one step further and made a graph with cross referenced prices/companies to find the best price on each item. Do NOT buy from Petsmart, Pet Co or Amazon. I was very surprised, but they were $5-6 MORE expensive than any other stores. It was very, very interesting to see the huge price range on a single item.
For example a Kong Wobbler:
- Petsmart $22.99
- Pet Co $15.99
- Wayfair $13.39
- Amazon $13.16
- KVSupply 12.59
- Jefferspet $11.95
- EntirelyPets $11.99
- Drs Foster and Smith $9.99
- Pet Mountain $8.67
Surprising isn't it?
Then you have to figure in shipping and handling and on some items/stores extra charges for weight fees. It took me a lot of time, but I think I found the best prices. I believe this is called nesting LOL!!
Here are some of the supplies that I'm getting together for the little man:
Snuggle Puppie from Amazon $29.95 - it has a heartbeat and warmer pads. It's supposed to help with crying at night and comforting, because it feels/sounds like a litter mate. I never want to go through what I did with Tibby, so I'll try anything!
Midwest exercise pen (yes, I need a 3rd x-pen) - $31.49
Canvas pet carrier - brown - $9.89
Cut to Fit Sheepskin pad - $8.99

Male No-leak reusable liner pads 3pk - $2.99
Male No-leak wrap - $7.49
Large Snake dog toy - $7.49
Vari-kennels Ultra Medium - $39.99 (I have a small plastic crate for car travel, but this is for the car when he is older. It's on sale now though!) - I have 5 crates and this will make 6 :P That's not counting the bunny and cat crates! And yes I do need to get this one too LOL!
Dog toy - shuffle bone -$9.99

Some of these things Tibby will get to share too. So it's not all JUST for the the puppy :)
I wish I could find some good tugging/chasing toys that aren't SO expensive. The tail chaser toy was the best one I could find.
