Realize now that night time will be the hardest time. You'll need to get up every couple of hours to take puppy out to potty. Puppy is going to scream for hours. Puppy will finally be quiet, and it's time to take it out again. Stay strong those first few days and it will pay off HEEPS with keeping your sanity when the shark phase kicks in.

Some folks get lucky and it takes a day or two. Some folks get cursed and it takes weeks. Hope or the best, but expect the worse.
