Oliver The Great was our house guest for this work week. He is such a gentle soul. Monday started off with making a new friend, 5-year-old Linden who came for dinner. These two played and played. Tuesday was his ’Office Manager Shift’ at my office. His biggest duty was to catch up on a few extra winks he needed🤣. Wednesday was all backyard play and his frisbee. Thursday saw buckets of rain and after his playdate & walk at Nosehill with buddy Huxley, it was time to get in long weekend mode. Friday morning came too early for us. Wish you could have stayed longer Oliver. You truly are ’The Greatest’.

🐾Oodles and Oodles of Doodle Love.🐾 Hi Huxley, if we hurry to your surprise we may, miss the rain. Huxley was ready to go, but he thought he was going to pick up his Thursday Bestie. Surprise, we are at my house! Plus, who pops out into the backyard to greet Huxley......his Doodle friend Oliver. Oliver has been staying with us since Monday. I was so glad that we could pair these two up again. We walked over to Nosehill and the closer we got, Huxley was getting more and more excited. When we finally got within the park and it was safe to unleash, they both ran like crazy. It is safe to say that Ooodles of Doodles is a lovely way to spend a rainy day. They ran all over and sniffed EVERYTHING! What I thought was so unique, is they both had ALL of Nosehill to pee on. No way - it had to be on top of the spot who ever first went. Then it was synchronized peeing trying to hit the same spot. Boys Boys...... Got to love the Oodles of Doodles. It can be confirmed that Oliver went back to our place for a nap. Huxley went for round two with Marley B. The Doggy Business Report: 1 poop for Huxley & 2 poops for Oliver. Pee Department - very competitive!

Oliver saw me coming from the front window. I went up to the window to say ”Hi” to the cute doggy in the window BUT!!! Oliver was gone. He had his head right up against the front door, anxiously waiting for me to open it.😊 Today was all about variety. In Olive’s world, it is ’his spice’ of life. We did a run-walk combination, and he loved it. We ran really fast, then slow. We played with sticks, got adorned by passersby (Oliver). We goofed around and had photo ops galore. He laid in the grass for more cookies, got some hi-jinx goofy moments in, and insisted the leash was to be carried in his mouth. All of this and I am still proud to say we had good distance for our run. Variety is truly Oliver’s Spice in Life.🐾PS. I am sure if you are ready this blog, you can tell Oliver did most of the above-mentioned activities🤣. The Doggy Business Report: 6 pees, no poops, and a must stop at Pet Planet.

It was Oliver and my ’Maiden Voyage’ run today. I knew I would be in for some fun with this fine partner at the helm. First, there was an energetic ” Ahoy Matey Welcome ” upon arrival. Then, a super speedy sprint that came to a dead stop in front of a glass door!! Captain Oliver thought he was in need of sustenance to finish this voyage. When I looked up at the sign, we were at Pet Planet. Safe to say, Oliver has been there a time or two before. Okay, Oliver let's set our sails towards the river. A fantastic run with the wind at our back and the sun shining off the water. Our mighty Captain felt the need for a cool refreshing dip. Aww, cool at last😊. Thank goodness this was on the homeward bound portion of our journey because there was no bugging Oliver until HE felt it was time to go. We docked back at home and the front lawn was Oliver choice spot to rest those weary sea legs. Chicken treats had to be placed going up the stairs to convince Oliver to move from the cool grass he was laying on. We christened our voyage with lots of water. No traditional champagne for this crew. The Doggy Business Report: 1 poop and 5 pees.
Let me introduce Oliver ’The Great’ to DGR’s pet sitting family. We had the pleasure, of this fine fellow, being our house guest since Thursday. This young pup just turned 9 years of age earlier this year. Age means nothing as he can outplay, out catch, and outrun all the young ones! He is in excellent shape and is as smart as can be. Oliver was like having an intelligent human being with us. He loves you to talk to him. His head tilts and he listens. Henry & I found ourselves asking Ollie ’What did he think?’ We hope to have this fine soul with us again real soon.
