Happiness IS A Warm Puppy!

I was going to do a serious post today. Really. But then it was quite a nice morning, it's my birthday and I decided to have some fun. Yard work could wait. Certainly blogging could wait. So what to do. Call a friend for lunch? Nope. Go see my favorite puppy. It has been a couple of weeks and I was anxious to see how much he had grown. You can judge for yourselves!

Olli's Mom assured me it was a good time to come since a lot of staff were on duty and she could visit a bit too. So here I am in my usual spot on the floor with a bundle of fluff in my lap.

A family came in and everyone descended on the pup. I had to take the pictures. Kids and puppies. A combination that can't be beat. What a great way to have your dog socialized! Take him to you place of work every day.

It reminds me of when we were first married and had our first Saint. We lived near Princeton at the time and used to walk the Delaware canal path between Washington's Crossing and New Hope. Hub once commented had he known how many girls a Saint puppy attracted he'd have foregone matrimony for some time to come. Ha! Probably true!

As you can see, even when staff had a free moment they couldn't resist scratching an ear! I do believe Ollie is going to be even more spoiled than Bacchus!

I was on the receiving end of something the others didn't get, however. Kisses. All over my hand and face. I've been given the best gift possible for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and now my birthday. My Bacchus.

Being Auntie Mari to Ollie isn't a bad second!

Maybe tomorrow I'll get back to something more serious. Then again maybe not. I haven't told you about the goose that came in!

Clearly Ollie and I are on the same diet. On him, it looks good!

Happy Birthday...CU

The expression on Ollie's face in the top photo is priceless.

I'd like to hear about the goose.
