Roland's First Day

  Well, Roland's first day was very exciting.  After riding the puppy truck from CA over several days time & dropping off other puppies along the way, the truck finally made it to CO.  14 puppies were delivered, one of which is my wonderful little pup Roland!  I have to say, it is a pretty good "R" name.

  Roland is an adorable 9 week old male yellow Lab/Golden cross.  His sire is Mack & his dam is Toffee.  One other littermate was dropped off in CO, Reagan.  He also has brothers Rembrandt & Rookie, along with sister Remmy.  Not sure if there are more in the litter or not.

  After all the excitement of the puppy truck, we had a short meeting with the CFR about puppy handling & what training to start our puppies with.

  Then we headed up to visit a friend of mine, who also happens to have my 3rd pup I raised.  Fletcher is a retired guide dog, but still living life with his partner. Roland barked the first 20 minutes up, which was interesting.  It was nice to get puppy #3 & puppy #5 together.  Fletcher wasn't real impressed with him, but that's ok.  Fletcher is 10 1/2 & would rather be left alone, then bothered by a little puppy.

Provo wasn't to sure what to think of the new puppy & has kind of been avoiding him so far.  I'm sure in time they will make friends though.

Roland was amazing his first night!  He went to bed around 10:30pm & slept all the way till 6am!  When he woke up this morning he didn't even ask to go out, just started chewing on his toy.  He is a really good pup & I can't wait to see him grow.
