Paula,
Yes, puppies are tons of work, but the rewards outweigh all the negatives...carpets ruined, floors chewed up, etc. Oh-jeez

Over the years, I've owned a Yorkie, West Highland Terrior, and an Alaskan Malamute. At one point, all three were alive at one time and got along great.

The most rewarding part of having a furry friend is when you come home and their tails are wagging and they show you so much love.

Have fun with your new friend. like

Paula - Have you started thinking about "names" yet? I mean, after all, a puppy like the one you are getting has to have a proper name? Smile

I know how to re-wire lamp cords.
HuhDont-knowI am an accountant so any advice given here is not medical. If I give any financial advice, you can take it to the bank. However, you will have a hard time cashing it in. Okay

Sour apple on the cords works great (at least for cats). Stops them from chewing.

I found that out after the third time.

I have a list of names. I keep paring them down then adding then paring down again. I figure I'll have some I like then settle on it later. It has to be a name I can say easily and one that fits her. And we don't use "dog" names, we use real ones. Other than PopCorn, a big hound we had. She was frightened and rather stoic until she was at the vet's office. Someone in the back made some microwave popcorn. Pop put her nose to the bottom of that door and inhaled so deeply, we were surprised the bag didn't get sucked in.

We have rescued and fostered a lot of dogs and cats over the years. There have been 39 critters go through this house. 24 of them stayed. We currently have 3 dogs and 2 cats.

Only thing that stopped my pup from chewing on cords was to use armored cable.

I wish you best of luck. I will never own another dog, or any animal, again for as long as i live. They are too much work for not so much gain. Total pain in the petunia.

Really all you can do, other than giving them something more pleasant to chew on, such as Kong toys. So long as they don't develop the habit of chewing cables while they're teething, they seem to grow out of need to compulsively chew.

Cables in many ways aren't the greatest risk -- small hand towels and socks, things they can accidentally swallow and like to suckle need to be accounted for, as well.

Makes sense in hindsight, but it was a hard lesson to learn with my border collie. Those repulsion sprays did nothing to dampen his spirits.

Sounds like you've lots of experience, though. Big Grin

Adorable little bastards.
