Present for a baby pug?

My amazing cat sitter is the proud owner of the most beautiful pug puppy.

Me and my two DC are going round on Sunday evening to meet the little one for a bit to help them start to socialise him - apparently children are good in small doses - and I would like to take them a present.

He has always refused any sort of payment for looking after my cat even if it's short notice or a bit awkward for him - I buy him occasional bottles of booze but this seems like the perfect opportunity to say thank you to him by treating his new addition.

But I am clueless... I am guessing things like treats aren't great as he's still very young, he's probably got all the essentials (very much wanted little pup and he has the means to spoil him) and I'd like to get him something useful as well as sentimental. .

Help!!

Hi, I went shopping yesterday for the puppy we hope to get in August, and there are some lovely things about. Maybe treat the occasion as you would going to visit a newborn baby? Lots of lovely soft toys about for pup to have in bed as a comfort. Pets at Home has some nice soft ones, and some are quite tasteful (not the dead duck). The Range, B&M Bargains and the pound type stores do some good stuff too and I am normally a shopping snob. Ditto soft fleecy blankets, entertaining toys like Kongs and things with ropes on........Pugs are on a lot of accessories at the moment too so look out for tea towels, mugs etc if you think they would like this; even if they are super stylish they are obviously going to be in love with their pup so might appreciate a pug eye mask grin
Oh, and maybe ground coffee for the early mornings!
Have a lovely visit, pugs are gorgeous!

Ooh - have heard good things about Kongs. Is he not a little small or is it actually a good thing and will stop him chewing his house apart?

You can get puppy kongs, and yes, if used correctly (stuffing them with yummy things) they can help stop inappropriate chewing.

Sounds like a winner then - I have a Pets at Home opposite a Range so will be making a visit shortly.

Thank you!

I've gone for a puppy Kong, a little bone thing which contains poo bags and a lovely soft little toy for him to snuggle up to - friend or pug smile

Perfect choices! Does the poo bag dispenser clip to the lead? If so, they're the best invention ever. Enjoy!

It does!

Can't wait to get my puppy cuddles in tomorrow! We're very much a cat household here but little squidgy baby dogs melt my heart! Yay grin
