It's been awhile since I posted about Ollie. He still LOVES to chase a ball and still carries one around in his mouth most of the time. He completed his first obedience class with me in May.
Last day of class..passed!
He loves to chase bubbles. And what are bubbles really, but floating BALLS?!
Jay entertains Ollie
Ollie took his first long road trip to our parents house. He did great in the car once he realized that the overpasses weren't going to actually hit him so he didn't have to duck each time we went under one.
Riding with M
He's been enjoying deck time with us in the evenings. He tried to chase a lightening bug but it was too fast. And he was too hot.
Resting with his favorite ball.
We took a mini vacation and he got to go with us. He got to spend a few days with his grandparents.
Enjoying the doggie door at mom's house
Swing time with me
The ride back home was quiet...I think he was worn out! He does think he has to retrieve the toll money we throw in, though.
Earlier this week, we discovered that Oliver was eating the walls in the laundry room. I guess he was bored, despite all the toys we put in there with him when we are gone. So he got a new crate to sleep in.
He always has to "help" Jay
I think he likes it. You can see Maggie checking it out........
Side by side. Maggie took over his smaller crate on her own.
On Sunday, Ollie and I will start obedience training and I can NOT wait to teach this goof ball some manners! So he also got a new harness for me to work with him. It will attach to the seatbelt in the car, keeping him from leaping around while I drive. (in theory) We plan a test ride this evening.
He's grinning. :)
I've been trying to catch him carrying his bowl around for some time. I've been DYING to say "Please, Sir, can I have some more?" Imagine the cockney accent.
After a long, beautiful day outside on Sunday, both dogs crashed on the couch. When I said "Okay ,guys, bedtime." I got nuthin. As far as THEY were concerned, they WERE in bed already.
Oliver had a great weekend! He seems to be settling down a little bit, although we still have a LONG way to go concerning his jealousy of Maggie. Saturday was gorgeous, so both of dogs spent the majority of their day outside. There was a LOT of ball throwing and retrieving.
He is very sleepy! Sorry about the sideways picture....Jacob took it on his camera and I don't know how to fix it on here!
Later Saturday night, we decided to watch a movie and pop some popcorn. Oliver LOVES popcorn! And he is excellent at catching it in his mouth when you throw it to him.
Maybe if he offers his ball to the popper, the popcorn will hurry and be done!
After popcorn, he lost his ball under the couch, so he's "helping" Jay find it.
