Meet Oliver

April 3, 2013

After we returned Cassidy to her family, our home felt empty. Grisha started checking the local animal shelter. At 4:55 on Friday we saw Oliver’s picture, so I ran outside screaming at Grisha “We have to go right now!! Our perfect puppy is there!” So we went to the pound minutes before they stop visitations and met Oliver. We signed his adoption papers, and came back to pick him up the following Wednesday after his operation.

It got even better when we brought him home. He is house broken and loves to cuddle. All our neighbors came over to meet Oliver. The big topic of conversation is what kind of dog he is. The shelter said lab-doberman mix but many people jump straight to rottweiler. The vet said his legs were too short to be a doberman so she thought coon-hound. Check out the video of Oliver’s first few days in our home and let us know what you think he is. He’s five months old, so get your bets in soon because it should be a little easier to tell when he’s a year old.

Also notice his disinterest in the tennis ball and the football, but his ownership over the doggy-basketball. A puppy after Grisha’s own heart!

    He’s adorable – seems comfortable there – and I think maybe he is part Catahoula (LA) Hound. Whadda I know?? He’s a lucky dog. Aunt Alice

      Never heard of that breed – but they come from Louisiana, so they must be made from the best stuff 🙂

      He already looks so different then we first got him – he’s put on weight and his coat is much softer. It’ll be fun to see how he turns out!

    I don’t know about that Louisiana breed, I had a beer the other day and he didn’t even try to drink it. I will add Tabasco to his food tonight and get back to you with the results. Better yet, I think i have some Bon Caca and Super Bowl XLIV hot sauce. Science! 🙂
