Talking Bringing your Chi home for the first time...

I get my baby on Thursday. Only 1 more day to go! I知 soooo nervous. Anyone have any tips on bringing your baby home for the first time? What did you do? Did you play with them or go about your home as usual?
I知 just not sure how I知 going to act when I get home. I know I知 not supposed to be all excited and stuff lol. I知 supposed to act normal.

What was your experience like brining your Chi home for the first time.

I just brought mine home today, she's a bit older, but she settled in fine, on the car ride home, ride her on your lap and wrap her in something. It makes them feed sucure.

It's going to be an adventure for me to pick her up. I will be flying from one island to another. This week our State (Hawaii) is on flood watch. HOPEFULLY the weather doesn't keep me from catching my flight. I will be carrying her onto the plane with an airline approved pet carrier, then driving for about 1 hour till I reach home.

Just remember that it will be kind of a shock for the baby to come into a new environment so keep that in mind. I would allow him to rest when he needs to as everything will be overwhelming. I would invest in a crate if you havent already, they are pretty cheap at Walmart. Take a blanket with you and rub it on the mom so you can get her scent on the blanket, this will help him not be so home sick at first. You can use the blanket as the bedding in the crate for time being. Also a crate is a safe haven that will allow him to seek refuge if he gets stressed out.

If it were me, I would buy a tube of Nutrical and keep it on hand just in case you have any Hypoglycemia issues. If you are not free feeding then make sure you feed at least 3 times a day and allow access to food at night.

Also make sure you give him a chew toy of some sort while in his pet carrier on the airplane and maybe a few treats. This will help him if his ears are popping on the airplane.

Dont stress out as it will all fall into place and you have us to help you through it
