We met our New Puppy!!!! Travel Advice!!

We went up to NJ this weekend to see our Puppy! OMG the were so adorable! They were right around 5 weeks old, so stinking cute. I was basically on the floor with them and was just one giant teething ring lol! So we are headed back up in early May when they are 8 weeks to pick up our boy. We are flying to NJ, renting a car and driving him home.

Thoughts on what supplies we will need... Clearly collar, leash, food, water.... The breeder is going to send us home with a frozen marrow bone to occupy him and based on my past experiences, definitely towels in case of car sickness. Any thoughts on what else do we need? There are 2 of us so one will be with him while the other drives. We are going to try to get down as quickly as possible - I just have no desire to put him on a plane and she said she could have gotten him to Atlanta with one of her handlers but we both felt having that bonding time with us is super important.

Thanks in advance!!!
