Weekend fun

just a few pics of ollie's weekend adventures. we discovered the capitol had ducks that swam in the waters around the building, but this was the most we've ever seen! usually there are only a few. ollie was in heaven!
I love ducks!
run run run!
Ollie loves his long weekend walks, especially when Nolan comes with us. Nolan runs with him so he gets in a good workout :)

Ollie also accompanies me on my weekend treat stop: starbucks! coffee for me, water for him.  I've read on other blogs (in the mainland though) that some starbucks gives dogs "pupacinnos" which is a little tiny cup filled with whipped cream.

"1 grande ice water please!"

Ollie loves visiting his great grandma!  He's such a great therapy dog for her. he is really gentle with her, gives her kisses, and likes to play. he'll show her his tricks and takes treats from her.  She loves seeing him and he always gets a smile from her. :)

Nolan and I were approached by someone at the pet expo the other month asking if we ever considered having Ollie become a therapy dog. honestly, that would be my dream.  but Ollie can be very unpredictable. certain strangers sends him into barking fits, and we can never tell why.  this alone is a reason we wouldn't think he'd be a good everyone-therapy dog.

but from the first time he met my grandma he was so good with her. and I consider it very lucky for all of us...and especially for her. her own private therapy dog :)

New places to explore

my parents recently moved to their new house, and we thought Ollie would miss the old place with its large windows overlooking the road where so many dogs walked was the best "babysitter" as Ollie could just look out the window all day long.  now, at the new house, he has a new distraction, their fish pond:
I wanna go in there!

in addition to the pond, Ollie has seems to have rediscovered their bed...which is the same bed they had at their old house, that Ollie never really cared about before.  But now it's his favorite place to be in the new house.  maybe it's the new comforter? who knows.  but you can always find him there with one of his toys.

Nolan's parents claim ollie has a secret credit card he uses to order cakes:
i'm thinking the people at the bakery think our family is nuts. lol. but I love it. Ollie gets really excited for cake :)
