behind the blinds

when ollie is at grandma & grandpa's house he gets into all sorts of mischief. lately, he likes to walk behind the blinds...and plop himself down for a sunbath.

"hi mommy!"

neuter now

the humane society's neuter now program started this week. you can read about it on the humane society's website here. you basically buy a certificate ($125 for male dogs) to receive a discounted rate on the procedure if you go to a participating vet. nolan went to pick up ollie's certificate yesterday. you can pick one up at the humane society or at any satellite city hall.

there's also a $5.00 microchip special going on as well. we were going to take ollie for that too, but decided to wait till he went to get neutered to do everything at once. my friend just took her 20lb black lab to get microchipped, and she called saying she's so glad i decided not to take ollie because the needle was HUGE!


ollie is going in to get neutered next month.
they said he has to stay overnight.

i don't want him to.

there is no one that will be there during the night. they said someone will stay late and come in early, but really...that's a long time to be left alone isn't it better if he just comes home where someone (me) can watch him and where he'll be comfortable and happy?

what do you guys think? am i just being a paranoid/nervous new mom?

across the office...
the other week ollie recieved a hand-me-down from his friend spunky.
spunky can no longer fit his backpack and passed it on to ollie to use.

"get this thing off of me!!!"
i don't think he really liked it.
but isn't it super cute?!?
have a good weekend folks!

ollie votes mufi!

There's in article in the StarAdvertiser today about abercrombie vs. hannemann and the picture is this one:

the picture was face up on the table at work and i just so happened to be carrying ollie as i walked by. so i picked up the paper and jokingly asked ollie, "ollie, who do you want to vote for?" and he put his nose on mufi. i thought it was funny so i asked him once more and he did it again!

i guess we know who ollie would vote for.
or maybe he just doesn't like abercrombie's beard. i know i don't. ha!

here we are trying to get him to pick again for a picture op, but he wasn't having it. he just wanted to play.

like father like son

ollie loves his dad, but hardly gets to see him.
nolan's quality time includes taking a nap...although i don't think ollie minds. he likes naps as much as his dad does!
i thought it was cute that they even nap the same!

he's got a busy afternoon ahead of him, a play date w/cinnamon and a 1yr old baby!

naughty naughty part 2

if you remember this post from last week, i mentioned how ollie doesn't particularly like wednesdays at the office because my mom doesn't come in so that means a significant decrease in the amount of attention that's paid to him. well, this week was no different. towards the end of the day i find that the little guy was busy making his frustrations known:

i hope this isn't going to be a weekly wednesday activity!

ollie's busy saturday!

Ollie had his second trip to the groomers on saturday! You can read about his first visit, here. This time we tried a different groomers, that was recommended by my mom's friend. We figured we'd give it a try....it's always good to have something to compare to! So for Ollie-Groomin-Round 2, we went to:

---FUR LOVE---
2115 Young St.
Honolulu, HI 96826

this is ollie's "before" picture.
he's sitting on his dad's lap...always wants to sit with nolan in the car.

this is his "after" picture:
i think he looks really cute! it wasn't like the last time where i didn't even recognize him when i picked him up....but then again, maybe i'm just used to it now.
When we dropped him off, he was a little scared. all the other dogs flocked to see the new guy. they asked if ollie could play with the other dogs, which i said was fine. in no time he was running around with all the other dogs! we picked him up 2 hours later and found him running around...not scared at all! they told us he had a lot of fun and that he made very good friends with ringo. we couldn't see ringo behind the counter...i don't know what i was expecting, but i certainly wasn't expecting, Krull the warrior king!

it was a chinese crested, and ollie was his best friend for the day!
ollie even made it into the fur love bloggity blog! check it out and see his playmates and pictures of ollie while at the groomers!
i think this will be his go-to groomers. i like that the dogs can play together and he seemed to have a ton of fun...and i loved how his cut came out :) AND he's the softest i've ever felt!

nolan and i had a busy morning so we weren't able to take ollie to play outside before the groomers, so i felt bad that he missed his play time outside, but i didn't want him to go running around, getting all dirty so soon after he came home all clean and smelling so nice! so i took him out to the front steps of nolan's house and let him watch the going-ons of the little dead end road. he loves watching the birds and butterflies fly by, and he loves when the wind blows.
a little later, nolan's aunty brought over he new puppy they just got last week! it's a shihtzu/maltese mix...but i think there must be something else in there as well because the puppy is big! Her name is cinnamon. they had a lot of fun together. ollie ran circles around her and she finally started chasing him, she was pooped.

after all the excitement of saturday, ollie was completely pooped. sunday was a lazy day for him after all the excitement from the day before :)
