Preparing for the new puppy's arrival

Just a few days to go. Most of puppy's toys and games will be homemade, but when they are very young and everything is new, some store-bought toys are worthwhile, as well. It's also a good idea to have a box or hamper to store them in. This water hyacinth hamper contains a handful of toys that were bought by well-meaning family, long after my Darling Chummy had lost interest in that sort of play. But we held on to them, and the new puppy, I'm sure, will be delighted. In addition, a few recent purchases for her are waiting to go in the hamper, until the day they come out again....
