How we're paying for Nat's nursing school

From Overheard:

Little boy
: Hey, can I pet your dog?

Man with puppy: You got a dollar?

sleeepy smoooooshy, originally uploaded by Olive the pug.

I entered this photo into the flickr group Smooshy Faced Dogs, but we didn't get chosen. Hurumph!

The theme was "Best Friends." I love my Jess-ter and loooove sleeping in her tum. Okay, gotta get back to my morning nap.

busy busy bee!

Hi everydoggy!

Things around here have been so jam-packed busy, I haven't had a chance to blog ONCE since I have been home from my trip to the mountains.

Guess what?!? I'm a TRUE mountain doggy now. I learned how to swim and hike off-leash and generally learn new non-New York dog ways from my other dog cousins, Sophie and Apollo. (Their Dad is my Mom Jess-ter's twin brother.)

My mommies took me on a car trip to West Virgina for the 4th of July, so we were away for quite some time, but now we are back to normal life in Brooklyn...still settling into the "new" apartment.

I tell you, I loooooove the vacation life. I was so into relaxing at the cabin, I didn't want to leave and go back home. Many naps and float trips down the river....ahhhhh....what a life!

I don't know if you doggies know this, but my Aunt Bri is going to have a baby boy in August and I am helping Mommy plan the par-tee to celebrate, which is actually this weekend...Planning the
"shower" has been hard, but fun. I don't know why they need to bathe to celebrate the new baby, or even why they can't take a bath instead, but it is quite the big deal for some hoomans. I get to help Mommy pick out things that look like toys for me for "party favors." Whatever those are. I don't know if I will be able to go to see all my hard work, but I'm sure Mom will take lots of pictures in case I'm not allowed in the bar where it is being held. Yeah, I said bar. Mom's cool like that. I'm getting to be such a grown up doggy, maybe soon she'll let me have some of her beer that tastes so good and cold....oops! Don't tell her I've tried it!

And now, for the PICTURES!!!! Yay, my favorite part!

Here I am with Mommy in the car. I think she was bored. It took us 7 hours to get there, but I was a good sport and only made grimacing faces like this one a couple times during the many, many photoshoots.

Look how happy I am in the mountains! (Mom messed with the colors, what do you guys think?)

Waiting to get the inner tubes ready for the float trip.

On the float.

The Cacapon river!



Going over a really big rapid!

(Mom's note: It really wasn't that big, Olive. A gentle ride, really. We just had to hold onto you tight.)

Thinking about swimming.

I think the outdoors do me well, don't you?

Keep that head up!

Just call me Captain Olive.

Ahhh, how I miss vacation...
