Introducing Alta-Tollhaus O’Connor
We apologize in advance for the length of this post but it is covering an eight day visit to Michigan and back home to Cape Cod. We thought we would post daily while in MI but seeing the puppies and good friends filled our days.
On Saturday March 10, 2018 Jack and I took Aiden and left Cape Cod for a road trip to Julie’s.
We then drove to Marshall, Michigan.
On Monday we went to see Julie and meet the “O” litter puppies in person.
On Tuesday we went back to Julie’s to help her get the puppies ready to take them to the Veterinarian for their wellness check-up. One healthy group of pups!
In the evening Andrea came by to see the puppies and then she, Julie, Carl, Jack and I went out to dinner.
On Wednesday we were back to bug Julie and to do some temperament testing with the litter. In the afternoon we helped Julie microchip the puppies.
On Thursday we were, of course, back at Julie’s. We enlisted Carl’s help and got some individual and group pictures of the puppies. Here are the “O” litter puppies at 8 weeks old.
Later Matt and Andrea stopped by to visit with the puppies and we all went out to dinner again.
Trying to choose just one puppy out of 5 males (and a lovely female) proved to be much more difficult than we expected. We agonized all week and decided that the Blue Camo collar boy would become the newest member of our family, Alta-Tollhaus O’Connor. We took Aiden and O’Connor for a nice “get to know each other” walk. Aiden was great with his son!
On St. Patrick’s Day it was time for the “O” litter to go home with their new families. In keeping with the St. Patrick’s Day theme all of the puppies have names with an O’. Each of the puppies was given an Irish bandana to wear made by my friend Shay, of Love n Paws Company.
From left to right: Green monkey, blue/orange, pink, green, blue camo, light blue.
We got to meet two of the families before we had to start our road trip home.
After we left two more families came to pick up their puppies.
We arrived home on Sunday afternoon. The boys were happy to get out of the car and run around the garden.
It has been a very busy week getting O’Connor settled in and going back to work. Dylan, Aiden and Lamont have all accepted O’Connor into our pack and O’Connor seems to be adjusting well.
Thank you so much Julie for giving us the opportunity to have an Aiden son and for all the time you were willing to spend with us during the week.
