|I wanted to mention our other dog Joey that will also be coming. I guess I would call him well behaved, but as a result of some prior abuse and a long stay in a kill shelter, he is incredibly shy, and sometimes nervous in new situations. He is fine around other dogs as long as they don't get in his face. (He won't be meeting other pups nose to nose.) Someone, I think Jolanda and Josephine, had suggested a while back that we go for a walk before the festivities to get everyone kind of settled. I think that is a wonderful idea, especially for some of the more nervous type dogs like Joey. This will be a new experience for most of our dogs, and even the most well behaved pups might bounce off the walls a little bit to see all the new faces, smells, and excitement. A nice brisk walk will get go a long way to getting everyone (myself included! )more focused and relaxed.
We plan to bring a portable pen just in case one of our pups needs a "time-out", and if anyone needs to utilize it, you are welcome to do so.
