Otto is home!

We brought Otto home yesterday! He did great in the car. Used the puppy pan as needed for both pee and poop. Slept most of the 7 hour trip in my lap. He has been eating, drinking and playing. Slept great last night, 10:45 pm - 5:10 am then quick potty and back to sleep until 6:30 am.

We are teaching him his name and how to sit so far. He is getting better with the sitting after practicing with most of his breakfast!

We are now working on having him nap without us there. The first time I sat in the ex pen with him until he dozed and then I left. I am sure I wasnít supposed to do that but itís so sad to hear him cry and howl! He did better the second attempt today, my kids were playing and he got tired and they got up and left and he is sleeping on his own! Phew!

The kids are having the greatest time, he has the sweetest personality and is absolutely adorable! He is gentle, hasnít bit anyone at all. Loves his toys. Tried to chew on his bed every time he sat on it so I took it out and just gave him the blanket from the car which is working well.

We are having so much fun and are SO in love with this little cutie!

Pam said he took right to everyone. That's a great sign. They return the love they get, and he could tell that you loved him right off. We've glad you got him.

I asked Pam what your family's preference for color was, when she was washing him yesterday morning. She said she thought your husband preferred red, or lighter colors. I told her that I thought he'd have a new favorite color.

I'm sure it's been a long couple of days, for you, and him, but I have no doubt he'll settle in just fine!

edited to add: They were all taught to sit, and be quiet, before they could be picked up. We just stand facing them, very still, and put a flat hand on our chest. The instant he sits, praise. He already knows that. The word can be added later.

The white toes on that foot! Does that white on his chin mean he's going to have a long white beard? He is so so cute
