Hello. Long time lurker. First time poster. We are picking up our puppy in the next few days. She is a yellow. Question I have is she will be 8 weeks old on Wednesday. We were thinking of picking her up on Monday being it is Labor Day and everyone is off(Kids go back to school Tuesday. My wife is a stay at home mom) Should we wait until Wednesday when she will be exactly 8 weeks or will 2 days early not really make a difference? Thanks.
UPDATE; We picked her up yesterday. Here are some pictures

Congrats. Can't wait to see pictures. Two days shouldn't make a difference but why not wait until next weekend when you will have 2 days home. That will also give her extra time with her litter mates which is good.

Congratulations! Does she have a name yet or are you waiting to see what her personality is like.
2 days short of 8 weeks shouldn't make a difference.
Conrats on the new pup...2 days shy of 8 weeks shouldn't make any difference. Post lots of pics please, and enjoy you new puppy
Congrats! I don't think 2 days would make a difference, either.
Thanks everyone for the replies. We are leaning towards Bella as her name. Next weekend will not work because our breeder has a show up in CT all weekend. Looks like we will stick with Monday.
I brought my yellow boy home 3 days shy of 8wks, he did just fine.
Congrats! I say go get her on Monday!
