Chewy stick

one of Ollie's favorite treats are pizzle/bully sticks. I love them because it keeps him occupied when I can't give him my full attention (esp. when washing dishes/cooking) the swirly ones he can chew through fairly quickly, but these twisted ones take some time. we usually buy him the smaller 6" ones for small dogs, but they were out of them the last time we went to the store (calvin + Susie) we just bought the bigger ones. 12" stick. LOVE them. they last even longer, and we don't have to buy so much or as frequently!

it's October, and we can now bust out Ollie's festive toys!
who am I kidding...we don't cycle them out seasonally, we just forgot about it until now. but ollie loves his jack-o-lantern toy. he chases it, plays volleyball with it (i'll toss it gently at him and he'll hit it back at me with his nose), and he carries it around....
it rolls good too, so he has a blast chasing after it too!

pet walk 2013

Last weekend was the annual Hawaiian humane society pet walk.  Ollie and I have attended every year since we've been pup and fur mom....his first walk was when he was just 8 months old. I actually think that was his best year. he was still a puppy, and he was filled with excitement and he plowed through everything!
no photos mommy!

now Ollie is SUUUPER excited in the beginning, and then tires himself out before the walk actually begins! 
we ran into our friends and their dogs...we tried to take a group photo, and everyone behaved and sat nicely....except Ollie. butt to the camera! so shame.
"no photos mommy! i'm busy!"

ollie even made it into a clip on the news about the event!  it was his 2 seconds of fame. and i'm a proud fur-mama!!!
