Mobile New puppy..

Lost our lovely choc lab In Sept 2020, she was 14. The most amazing dog. She was with me through the passing of both my parents and ≈≈≈≈≈≈ divorce. We walked miles together and I loved her. I still miss her now today.
I have a daughter who is struggling with some mental health issues and Iíve piled the weight on trying to be the family rock.
So, Iíve decided to get a puppy! A golden lab, itís ready to leave its mum in Xmas Eve.
Iím excited but nervous and we are keeping it a secret from the children.
We do have a 4 yr old cockapoo so Iím
Hoping that will be a big help, with training etc..
Has anyone had a puppy on Xmas eve? Any advice?
Some people that sell pups say it will come with a blanket with mums scent on., but ours does not offer that, but I could drop off a blanket now and ask for that, but Iím not sure if it will make any difference.
Any advice is appreciated
Thanks

We were given a toy and a blanket for Leia our setter she wasnít bothered about it. I stayed with her the first night I think having another dog will help. She settled in pretty well with my parents westie. They got Holly on the 23rd of December 5 years ago. She was typical westie though settled in no bother. Still young enough to not bother the tree to often

Ours wasnít too bothered about the blanket either, but he loved an oversized T-shirt that dd wore to bed for a few days before he arrived we then cut it into large squares and he would snuggle up on that when he went to bed. It was also easy to replace when it got too worn and dirty. Enjoy your new puppy x

Perhaps take a blanket with you and ask the breeders to rub the mother down with it when you pick up the puppy. Also, at home, set up a crate in a quiet place so that the puppy has a safe space and is not overwhelmed by the busyness of Christmas. It is most unusual for a responsible breeder to release a puppy on Christmas Eve. It would be a red flag to me, so be careful.

I second the blanket idea, we did this and willow has slept through the night since we got her! I can imagine life with a cockapoo (we have one) and a lab puppy will be lots of fun!

We have a 12 week old cocker spaniel and I think a blanket with Mumís scent on is a good idea, we left one with the breeder before we picked Juno up.
Good luck!

Our girls is 3 and still sleeps with her blanket from her mum ❤️

Iíd recommend a crate with bed, toys and feed treats in it to give puppy own space over the busy Christmas period and to give your older dog a break from puppy mithering.
