We are bringing home a 3 month shihtzu on Friday. The car ride will be 2 1/2 - 3 hours. We are bringing her carrier bag, toys, towels, paper towels, leash, collar, harness, water, we'll have food from the breeder. Anything else I am missing? Any suggestions on what can we do to make her ride home comfortable? thanks!

Ear plugs? ;)

The shelter we adopted our puppy from was about an hour from home, and really, all I had was a carrier, and he did fine. He was quiet the whole way, and didn't make a mess.
Take a couple vitamen B tabs and give one half hour before leaving. this will help with car sickness. If you see him salivating, give him another one.
Personally, I wouldn't give a new puppy anything supplement or medication related before its seen a vet who has ok'd it. I'd rather clean up barf than accidentally give my dog the wrong thing.
