So I know we’re late to the pandemic-pet-party but my husband and I decided last week to get a puppy - my parents got one about a year ago and the boys (5 and 7) have been asking ever since. This is the first dog for both of us, so I’m looking for advice! What do we need? What should we do? What should we NOT do?

And just because I’m so excited, a picture - she’s a labradoodle, we’re going to name her Lucy, and we get to pick her up the weekend of Sept 18.
