   Leave a bone for Ollie (in memoriam)

Oll, Oller-Boller, Oll-Boy

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

sleeping; eating; lying in the sun in late spring

he whines if another dog is taking up too much room on HIS couch, but doesn't mind sharing

Favorite Toy:
due to hind end problems, he doesn't play much anymore, but when he did, he loved a soft Frisbee, tennis balls, and any large, floppy stuffed animal

Favorite Food:
anything we are eating..even things like olives, tomatoes, salad, apples... almost anything

Favorite Walk:
He doesn't walk very far these days, but thankfully due to medication, he can still get around on his own..just short walks around the yard

Arrival Story:
Ollie is a retired racing Greyhound who came from Greyhound Friends in Hopkinton, MA. He was adopted out to someone up in Boston for a short while. That didn't work out because of his large size in a small apartment, so after finding a notice in the paper that he was available for adoption, and with the approval of Greyhound Friends, we were able to adopt him in 1994.

He was four years old when he was rescued, older than most Greyhound rescues. He apparently was a very good racer, and was kept racing longer than most.

In memoriam: On June 9, 2004, after a few weeks of increasing infirmity, and pain, Ollie had to be put down. He was a wonderful dog, who loved everyone, and everything. We were lucky to have ten great years with him. He will be missed terribly.
