Alligators and Olly

23 Sep

This past week has been so busy.  There have been two tests, a dentist appointment, volunteering, but most importantly….we adopted a dog!!

Say Hi to Oliver:

He is always exposing himself for the camera:

Olly was at the Humane Society as a transfer from another shelter, so we don’t know his story or how long he was without a home.  He is four and much of his fur is missing due to a flea allergy that got out of control.  Luckily we have him on some flea medication (such an easy fix, it makes me angry that he even had to suffer from it) and some good food.  We’ve even started to see new hair coming in just within the few days we’ve had him.  We can’t give him a bath for a few more weeks (so that the medication doesn’t come off), but I think by then his fur will grow in, he’ll gain some weight and little Olly will be as good as new.  Most importantly his heart is so big and he is the sweetest dog anyone can imagine.  He was just dying for someone to take him in and for some bodies to sleep against.

Also this week we saw the first gator in the pond in our backyard!
