On January 29th we received the call from CCI that they had a puppy ready for us to start raising the first week of March. The information was limited, just a male puppy from the K litter. She didn't even have the color, or name, and I forgot to ask for the birth date, and Breeder information.
I immediately sent out a search for the K Litter through my CCI connections, and got a response quickly with the Breeder. We immediately hooked up through social media and my family and I watched the Litter grow through pictures, and received more specific information.
As we were nearing our departure to return Haddie to CCI, we still did not have a name for our assigned puppy. We knew the three options in the litter, but we did not know the specific boy that we would raise. Two males were yellow, one male was black.
During some "down time" at Turn-In, we pulled the Director aside and asked if she knew any additional information about our assigned pup. She confirmed she had it ready, so we walked to her office for the big reveal. We were so excited (not only to see her office and more of the CCI Campus) but also to hear the official name of our Second Puppy In Training.
