Ollie is great (Oliver as a more formal name??)!! Congrats on finding a great name! Now does that mean he's staying with you as a forever dog?

We're open to the idea. If he has a formal name it could either be 'Oliver' (like Twist) or the French 'Olivier', like Sir Laurence. I'll have to ask him which he prefers LOL

Thank you. He responds to it well. Quite the lap dog. In fact, he's in my lap right now.

We probably won't make a decision for a few weeks until he's 100% and we're sure Andy's leg is 100% OK and the infection doesn't return. Ollie won't be going anywhere for awhile in either event.

We need to see how Katie feels about it over time, how Andy's leg fares, and consider whether or not Ollie would have a happier life as an only dog or a 2nd dog. Making sure all the fur kids are as happy as they can be is paramount in the end.

I never thought a poodle could be this laid back. A far cry from the French poodles I had to confront on my paper route who wanted to bite my ankles off! LOL I don't know anything about toy poodles, but this guy is a little snuggler who's happy to curl up on your lap or lay his head on your shoulder when you hold him. I woke up this morning to him leaping on my chest and kissing my face. He's an affectionate little bug

Jane and I are enjoying his company. He's very easy to have around. Never demanding, usually curled up in a comfy place near or on someone. IMO, if he can get a wonderful forever home where he'd be the only boy or only the 2nd dog that would be the ideal situation. Three dogs is a different dynamic than two. Just want to make sure he can get all the love and attention he wants the next 14 or 15 years of life ahead of him. We'll see what happens as time goes on. He has some recuperating to do yet.

Ollie is a great name. He sounds like such a sweetheart.

Did Andy have a chance to get out into some snow yesterday? We just had a dusting, today it melted.

Back now after being away up north for a few days. Ollie is a great name for the little guy. He looks so sweet and so happy...perfect name. It's nice to see ALL the puppies including shy little Katie. (She's so cute when she runs away from the camera). Looks like fun was had by all especially at dinnertime

My goodness - I've missed a huge adventure!!! I'm thrilled to see that everything is going well with little Ollie, Katie and Andy No doubt Christmas was extra special for all the "beings" in your household.

And Karen, your pictures are wonderful!!

Sounds like you guys are having great days as well. Looking forward to pics when you have time. LOVED the one especially where he's 'getting a pass' for being on the furniture with you and your sister. So sweet. What a beautiful little boy you have. The pictures are adorable. Of course, as Buddy's Dogfather I think every single one is LOL

Here are a couple quick vids of Andy joining in the Christmas spirit. I am helpless against 'the look' LOL The slightest sound of a tinkling fork or other signs food is moving gets Andy's instant attention. Aw. He had a dinner of turkey breast meat, a little green bean casserole, a spoonful of jello, and one Hawaiian roll. Got his pills and bedtime Denamarin in little slices of turkey and went to bed with a smile on his face.

Andy arrives and takes his place next to me, then an eyewitness view of him hitting pay dirt at dinner :

Ollie really is a great name, and it does suit him I hope you decide to keep him, but if you feel it's best to find him another forever home I'm sure he will be forever grateful to you for saving him

Love your videos of Andy at Christmas dinner. Reminded me so much of Daisy as she used to do exactly that, just casually sit wherever the food was with her big brown eyes fixated lol.
