September 4th 1998
sniffin' butts, going nuts, destroying magazines (preferably the flimsier kind a la TV Guide), running in the park, sleeping under the covers, embarrassing mom by nipping other dogs while she's stooped over picking up his poo.
NOISE. UPS trucks, door bells (in real life or on TV), food allergies. also, not a fan of humans dancing, no matter the level of competency.
ollie can't really handle toys. apparently, he has the jaws of a pitbull. any and all stuffed toys are shredded within 8 minutes.
any "no-no" foods. homemade duck-and-potato mash (for special occassions or when we're feeling particularly guilty about something).
absolutely anywhere but he seems to like to be the big boss man of the dog park most of all.
sit pretty, roll over, stand in the pantry until he gets a treat. we love that one the most.
a few years ago ollie had a really tough year. he came down with acute allergic chronic bonchitis as well as some very bad skin infections and suffered from seizures. after about 100 trips to the vet and lots of medication (and more money spent than i care to remember), skin biopsies and love and rest he fully recovered. he was very close to the edge and when he had his bad seizure i thought he was gone for sure. i NEVER want to come that close to losing my best friend again. he hardly coughs anymore and his skin has cleared up, though not all of the hair he lost will grow back. i think it just gives him more personality. if anyone out there has a dog that has gone though the same illnesses that ollie has or is going through it now please feel free to contact me. i was very afraid of putting him on prednisone but it was what ultimately saved his life. he's been tapered off the drug now and i don't have any regrets about using it to treat him but it was a very scary decision to make at the time.
sniff it, sniff it good.
