Good Golly Little Ollie - WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

 Poor Ollie - he had been sick as a dog, so off  he went to the V-E-T.  After a thorough examination,  the diagnosis was that  he had urethral prolapse.
        The following day (Tuesday),  he had surgery. His doctor recommended that neutering would help to alleviate the problem before it escalated to the really serious stage.
Tuesday was a LONG day for me.  My pawrents gave me extra treats, walks, hugs and reassurance and I was anxiously looking forward to having him back home.

However . . . I certainly wasn't prepared for this.  When I saw him stagger (from medication)  into the house, his cute face surrounded by a *lampshade*,  I was petrified and lost my composure.  
 For me, this was a natural reaction because I am afflicted  with fear aggression and that sight made my fur turn even more white.  Who was this strange dog ???
Ollie has been on bed rest, is still on medication and even has a soft blue collar for bedtime.  He's almost back to his normal (annoying) self.
I finally got accustomed to seeing his face in a collar.   We're all just grateful that he's mending nicely and we will have another reason for which to be thankful on Thursday.

Ollie's Birthday Pictures

FINALLY -- 3 days later - Ollie had his official Barkday celebration on Sunday.   Mom made the cake -- it was delicious, but a cardiologist's worst nightmare.   (Mom's cooking role model is Paula Deen.)  There were 3 candles and one musical one to grow on.

I gave him his very own squirrel and he received a HUGE box of Jerky Favorites (Chicken, Beef, Duck and Lamb) from 
and the White Dog Army.  

THANK YOU and a BIG salute to Everyone !

Ollie was his most gracious (???) self.

. . .and where was I in the middle of 
the festivities ?
I just couldn't stand the excitement.

Happy 3rd Barkday Oliver

Happy Barkday to my brother Oliver.  He's still very annoying - takes my toys, gobbles my food, steals my treats and thinks that life revolves around him.  Silly boy - it's all about ME !

Also . . .
Happy Barkday to Lorenza
