Aunt Maika with the W-litter pups (Gavin x Kira) can you believe this is early January in Michigan? Hard to believe because there is no snow to hide the fact that I still haven’t raked my leaves. But as you see, they have not gone anywhere.
We are thrilled to announce that Scott and I are to be the proud new owners of W-litter Blue Collar Boy! His registered name will be Alta-Tollhaus Wyatt West, which is both a nod to our years out west in North Dakota, and double deference to the W-litter. We’ll probably call him “Wes.” We were originally going to name our puppy “Dutch,” after the GSD’s named “Dutchess” in the past, but we have really jumped onboard with the rest of the Alta-Tollhaus enthusiasm for naming our dogs in line with their litter letters. I love how easily the name provides so much information about the dog’s age, sire, dam, and litter-mates!
My husband and I found out we are expecting a GSD! Dan named him Walter (W name) and we will call him Oso, which means bear in Spanish.
