Hi folks. In just a few days little Rainy will be in her forever home! I'm so excited to get her and love her and hug her and kiss her...but I have questions that I can probably figure out but thought I'd put out there to all you experienced furparents.
First off, there's the question of a crate. Now I've read that the crate should be big enough for the pup to turn around in and be comfy in, but not big enough to set up a separate potty area in. But that begs the question.... plastic or wire?
Second off, I've got a balcony that I'm going to set up as a potty area for her, using puppy pads. Question is how to hold them down! See, this is the "Windy City" and the last few days have indeed been windy! I've looked at those "holders" at Petsmart, but they are quite small and fairly lightweight, too (would take off from the balcony like a kite!).
I know I'll think of more, but even though I'm very excited to bring her home, I also want to do the right thing for her, and the sane thing for me! Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
