halloween 2014

two months late, but still cute!  Ollie's first costume is a minion!  he was gifted this from Nolan's brother's girlfriend sarah.  isn't it so ridiculously cute?!?!?!  He also had a vampire cape from my parents (found it in japan)...we took it a step further and said he was a hybrid...half wolf, half vampire...he was Klaus mikelson from the CW show, The Originals. 

my mommy's favorite tv character!

why you do this to me?

Ollie hates costumes/clothes that involve hoods that go on his head....but my dad insisted on buying this for him on their recent trip to japan. even though Ollie hates's still pretty stinkin' cute!
I refuse to move.

Ollie loves his ewok friend.  we've named him wicket, like on star's easier, since just calling him "ewok" confuses Ollie. he hears "walk" and gets a little too excited. 
let's go play, wicket!

some say we look alike!

dapper fella

strike a pose
Ollie looks all sorts of handsome in his new bow tie. it was a gift from his friends keira and Kelsey in California!  The bow slides right onto his collar!

enough pictures, mommy!

what's a little rain?

pet walk 2014

our yearly tradition, the annual pet walk!  this year we had to blaze through the 1/2 mile course, as Nolan had to go to work.  Ollie usually tires himself out before the walk even begins, but I think he did a good job!  there was a little agility course set up but he wasn't having any of it. he refused to jump over the hurdles, even though he totally can. stubborn guy.
let's go mommy!

nope, I'm not jumping over this. not gonna do it!

Go bows!

we found this super cute football jersey at the H-zone (formerly rainbowtique).  now, I'm personally a huge basketball fan, not so much a UH football fan...but I figured this was too cute to pass up! Ollie will definitely be wearing it this basketball season to show his support!

do I get to start?

Salted lemon

wow, I've dropped the ball on this blog. i'll try my best to play catch up for the rest of the year!

did you know Salted Lemon (located in liliha) allows dogs?  and they have one of the best acai bowls ever! Ollie enjoyed being able to dine in!  (they also have really great fresh pressed juices and smoothies!)

where's the food?

can I have some?

ollie on duty

not even hurricane winds will keep Ollie from standing guard over his neighborhood...

scaredy cat

lately, Ollie has been scared of the noises coming from the apartment unit directly above us. there is one particular noise that he doesn't like. it sounds like a ball falling onto the floor and rolling. every time it happens, he hides. he'll either hide by the toilet, or in a closet: 

"take cover! the sky is falling!"

"I feel safe next to my daddy's stinky clothes"

safe place

ever since the day I met Ollie, he loves his bag.  it's his safe place.  every afternoon, he'll go into his bag instead of his bed...and wait for the end of the work day when we can go home.

dorkie mommy

I am a crazy dog lady. I LOVE finding cute yorkie shirts!  This cute one is a pajama top from Nordstrom that I saw a fellow yorkie-mama sporting on IG. she led me straight to the shirt, and the rest is history! another yorkie shirt to my collection.

wake up daddy!

Ollie the alarm clock strikes again!  He thinks it's his duty to wake Nolan up every morning (some mornings are more difficult than others). Ollie doesn't rest until he's successful. once Nolan wakes up, Ollie goes back to sleep. Ha!
"time to wake up daddy!"
"I'm getting very frustrated! he's not waking up!"
"oh well, I need a break."

feed them!!!

see? always excited to feed the fish...

Thursday, August 28, 2014

ollie pollie, the fish feeder

even more pics of Ollie on his bridge...the yellow container has the fish food in it, and Ollie will run straight to the container and bark until you throw food into the pond...if he actually lived at my parent's house, those fish would become overweight!!!

Monday, August 25, 2014


Ollie's happy place...he could (and does) spend hours out on the bridge looking at the fish...

Dumb and dumber

Ollie decided to give himself a new 'do...I think he styled it after jim carey's character in dumb and dumber....probably not one of Ollie's best looks. lol!

"what do you think?"
"you don't like it?"
"oh well"

time for a bath!

it's so easy to give Ollie a bath in my parent's shower!  I don't think Ollie minds much at all!

Are you prepared?

In case of emergencies, don't forget about your pets!

Here is Ollie with his emergency supplies as we awaited hurricane iselle...

"don't forget treats!"
"water is important too!"
