Default I am not being very patient.

I usually try to not want to rush time and I usually have quite a bit of patience. I am NOT being very patient now and I am wishing for the days to hurry up (even Christmas day). I can not wait for Canyon and Ryker to be home with us. I am watching them play with their sisters right now (one goes home on the 29th, not sure about the other sister). I can not wait to get puppy kisses, give out tons of love, to start training them, ...

I need to go find more things to busy myself with. I think I am going to make some peanut butter chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, and chocolate chip muffins. We are also finishing up the puppy proofing and buying the few last items we need (okay want). I have several Christmas movies in my DVR, I could start watching those.

you don't say where you are, but you could put your baked goods for sale, be really busy and then have more cash for puppy toys!

or, you could just skip out and head to a hotel near your puppies and play with them every day till you can bring them home... (they do need their first mommy for a few more days, really...)

You do realise there is really no such thing as puppy proofing, right? Consider that a puppy can find a way to get into mischief with only his own body as an accomplice to the deed...

Great ideas! My puppies are only about an hour away. Sure is nice.

Have you seen those hard plastic sheaths that you can put cords into so puppies can't chew them? Totally worth it, if your puppies show an interest in electrical cords. Do you have an x-pen or baby gates so you can contain your puppies in a safe area? Because you have two coming at once, it will be worth it to you! Speaking from my own experience of course

I bought two large pens (one for upstairs and one for downstairs) that they both can go into (large enough for dog beds, pad tray, and room to play) and two smaller ones, if I feel they may need separating. Once they get older I will allow them to roam a single room and then slowly introduce them to larger areas, until they can safely roam the house.

I need to search for the cord holders. We have so many cords coming out of the tv, xbox, etc. I have twist tied them together and tucked them behind and under the tv stand, but would feel better about having them completely wrapped.

I still tend to use the gates to block off areas that present a possibly overwhelming temptation to the dogs - more so when they are together, having a play date... somehow, what one does not think up alone, the other does (or they manage it together...)!

Right now, that's the room under construction with the gifts. Our cords are not hanging out, but if they were, we'd just gate the tv, or tree, or whatever. (Of course this applies once you give them the freedom in the house...)

It's hard to wait! But, before you know it they will be here. Enjoy the last few poop and pee free days.

Sounds like you've got it covered! One great thing about having 2 is, they wrestle and romp together and get a lot of exercise. Ours still do that a lot, at 19 months old, and it's a great little outlet when they are feeling restless. Another great thing is, they cuddle at night and don't feel so lonely when they are separated from their mama!

My kids are never left free in the house. If I am not around to watch them they go into their room. The breakfast room where their crates, water etc are and which I have carefully puppy proofed and have webcam to watch them. I find that they egg each other on and get in trouble. And none of mine are puppies. Not sure of the sizes of yours but little bitty kids can squirm into some amazing places to find trouble.

LOL!

Actually I just looked at the clock and couldn't believe half my Saturday was already over. I have cookies in the oven, and we will all have to taste test them, you know make sure they are not poisonous.
