Default Nervous

Ok, so I am going to meet the breeder in about an hour to pick Gucci up. For some reason, I am BEYOND nervous. To the point of being nauseous. I have never owned a dog before and I am just freaking out about it. It's not that I feel like I'm not ready...but...I almost feel like I'm having a child and I'm....well, nervous. I can't find another word for it.
Is this crazy???

That's so normal and don't worry if you still feel weird and nervous after to have him home - I know I did when I first brought Milo home. It took most of the first week for me to bond with him.

I think it is normal to be nervous. They are so little and helpless.
I think it shows you are going to be a great dog owner - you are already worried about doing everything just right!
You will do great! Everyone here with help with any questions. You will figure it out, and Gucci will love you so much!

Maybe it is not nerves, just extreme excitement!!!
Gucci is finally coming home!!! Hooray!!!
We can't wait to see pictures!
Enjoy this special wonderful magical day! Life is about to change for the better!

I'm sure once you see Gucci all of your nerves will disappear! It is mostly excitement you're feeling, I think. Can't wait to see pics!

I did the same thing when I picked Ben up at the airport. I followed his flight with the flight tracker app and got to the airport very early. Once you see Gucci, you will relax a little. Can't wait hear all the details!!
