So Tater really Gotcha day is the 27th, but since that is a Saturday and I am sure we will all be watching football and partying like the rest of the town for Florida / Georiga Weekend I am doing this early.
I got the call from the breeder late in the afternoon on October 27th 2005, he called to tell me he got tickets for the game Saturday (the day we were suppose to pick Tater up) and wanted to know if we would like to come two days early to pick out our loving male and take him home. I was all over that.
I called Cody and he said we will go right after work, and not to call anyone we were going to suprise everyone. So go home change into some jeans and sweaters (It was cold) grab me a towel for the little buddy and we headed out for the almost hour drive. When we got there I was just so excited. We had already picked out the name, we knew his name would be SIR TATER OF TOT's we call him Tater for short.
I had my blue puppy colar in hand and we walked over to there little pin. The breeder took out the two males (I had first pick of the males) and they were walking around. We played with both of them has he was telling us little things about them. We found out that Tater was a food hog and then we looked over to find him chewing on a cord. I said I want that butter ball. The breeder asked if we wanted to give him a bath. I said no I wanted to give him his first bad at home.
Tater fell asleep in my lap on our way to Codys parents house. They had no clue that when we got there we would have a little yellow fur ball. Took him in he met his new best Friend Bama and Codys mom and I gave him his bath. Wrapped a towel around him and I just knew it was love at first sight. Took him home to our house and he fell asleep on the floor behind the chair while we ate. I thought I would give it a shot and put him in the crate to see how he would do. Well a few hours later I was sleeping on the kitchen floor with him. Back started hurting so I slept on the floor beside the bed with him. Had a sock that was tied in a knock and we played all night long.
On that Saturday I had Tater in my lap the whole day watching football. He got to play with all of his new friends and even got to play some football with the big boys. He is now 2 years old and he is turning into a handsome little man. He might end up driving me to the looney bin, but its worth it. Having him around is just the greatest thing ever. I LOVE YOU TATER!!
