Ollie is learning to become an obedience champ! But his cutest is High Five!

Arrival Story:
I got Ollie from a breeder when he was 6 months old, and he was the most timid dog I had ever met. He didn't know how to play with toys, and was afraid of everyone! When he was about 8 months old, he ran away while I was out of town, and survived in the Arizona desert for 8 days! When he was finally tracked down ( he wouldnt come to anyone) he had lost ten pounds and was full of cactus! Now he is so attached, he howls when I leave the house. He is obsessed with his toys, and is a love bug with his family (but still needs help with strangers)!

Everyone thinks that Ollie is a mental midget, but that is just how he comes off at first (his looks dont help him any!). He is actually a smart, playful boy who loves his family dearly. He loves to play any time of day, and he is pretty sure that he is one of the worlds biggest lap dogs. He loves to play with other dogs, which usually results in him driving my roomates basenji crazy. When I told people I wanted a Shar-pei I heard things like "they are vicious" "unhealthy" "Untrainable" and other such crud. But in reality, my dog is a very healthy sweet and totally trainable dog. We are even trying to get his CD (and he is doing great, he loves to please)! His only "problem" is his fear of strangers, but slowly (oh so slowly) that is getting better.

Snow is Crunchy and Wet

Last week here in Seattle it snowed. I had never seen this stuff before. When I first walked out to potty, I danced all over trying to keep my feet warm and dry. Turns out that is impossible. So I gave in and walked through the stuff. It was actually kind of fun! I like going through the deeper stuff. I like to stand in it and stare at mom and dad, but then my feet get cold, so I have to rotate lifting them in the air to keep them warm. And everything looks different (and sorta scarey) when there is snow on it. I was afraid of fire hyrdrants and bushes and stuff when there was snow on them. It was all pretty exciting!

Did I mention it is my birthday today?!


Not Gonna Do It

So it has started to rain here in Seattle which, to my mothers surprise, doesn't really bother me. Sure, I still hop over every puddle I can rather than walk in it, but I don't mind cruising through the wet streets or pushing my face into dripping wet bushes and running through wet grass. What I DO mind, is pooping on wet grass. It isn't going to happen. And I am surely not doing it right in the street. I figure if I just keep walking, I will find a patch of grass dry enough to do my business on. Eventually, mom gets sick of my quest for dry grass, and just takes me home. So then by my next walk I REALLY have to go and I can't be so choosy. Sneaky mom. Why can't she just walk until I find a suitable place?!


Seattle, Land of New Smells

Seattle. My new home. Firstly, it is great here. There are SO MANY plants to pee on. And because mom and dad live in an apartment with no yard, I get walks ALL THE TIME! It is great, because there is a park just down the road where I can run and play, I made a new pal yesterday who taught me how to play in tall grass (we didn't have that in Arizona). The weather has been really nice, and there hasn't been any rain, so I think this whole "Rainy Seattle" business is a lot of talk. We'll see I guess. Anyway, life here is pretty good, mom and dad have more time to devote to me (mom is only working part time, and dad's graduate school schedule is pretty flexible). Life is good.
