I just wanted to add that Hunter and Hailey both weren't really chewers. So I never worried about them chewing blankets. If this puppy is a chewer I may bypass the blanket. The blanket is not a huge thing either, it's more of a fuzzy fleece cloth I got from a fabric store to lay down. The crate was not huge either for the puppy. I have a different crate now too so I don't know just how much my old doings will hold up.
That little piece of cloth I take to the breeder and get some good smells on it for the puppy.
