Pajama Party

Auntie Kara gave Oliver these adorable pajamas for Christmas. They're a bit short on him in length but he looks so cute in them. He doesn't mind wearing them at all :)

All dogs love to give kisses. Do you think that they kiss us because they love us and want to be all affectionate and cute or because they like the way we taste?

Take the picture on the right -- I just love Matt's scrunched up face as Oliver showers him with kisses. I was grinning ear to ear as I snapped it. Such a happy moment!

The picture was taken while Matt took a break from some yardwork. The grown up in me says that Oliver was just licking the sweat off Matt. But the kid in me likes the frosting... OK the kid in me thinks that Oliver was so impressed with the yard work that he just had to shower his daddy with some kisses. That, my friends, is my story, and I'm sticking to it!

Life in Black & White

I took a photography course at RISD this summer and Oliver was more than happy to be one of my "subjects". This is one of my favorite pictures :)

Yesterday, Oliver got his first "summer haircut". He's much smaller now without all his hair! The groomers left most of his face long, so he looks a bit silly but so freakin' adorable!

His hair is down to his undercoat, so it's so soft and silky -- almost like mink fur. I can't stop petting him.. he's like a cuddly stuffed animal!

He must be cooler because last night was the first night he slept on the bed with us all night. With the long hair, he got hot and didn't like to sleep on the comforter.

Oliver's first birthday!

Oliver has his first birthday on March 14, 2009.
He celebrated with his auntie Kara and Uncle Howie as well as cousins Wakefield and Angus. The kitties did not come out for the festivities.

From Olivers 1st Birthday Mar 14 09

I baked some 'doggy friendly' cupcakes for the dogs (complete with Paul Newman organic heart shaped dog biscuit on top) and they really loved them! Oliver even managed to grab two unfrosted cupcakes off the counter while we weren't looking.

On Trial

So we finally enrolled Oliver in Doggy day care at Metropet.
Before being accepted to doggy day care, he had to do a 1/2 day trial to be sure he would get along with other dogs. This is what he looked like before and after his half day trial:



Looks like Oliver had a great time!

Big Biscuit!

While visiting North Conway on our ski trip, we picked up a big treat for Oliver at his favorite pet store in the white mountains, For Your Paws Only. He got a huge black & white bone shaped cookie!

Oliver stared at it a bit before devouring it!
