The Diary of Oliver >>
Posted: 8th January 2009

Hiya everyone it's Oliver here, just to say hello and let all you kind people who ask after me know how I am getting on.I am not as sick now and putting on weight and getting bigger every day.I am a cheeky wee monkey and just love to get out to play when visitors come to see me.
Love Oliver x

Update 2nd December:

This picture was just taken on Saturday past, don't you think I've grown, I'm getting a big boy now. Go to see the doc on Thursday only thing is I have to stay in overnight and will be having an x-ray video taken to see how I am progressing. Just hope the girls remember to take my dinners with them.
Love Oliver xx

Update 4th December:
Whoohoo went to see my aunties & uncles at the Dick Veterinary college and guess what I now weigh a whopping 8.9 k..yipee!! The vets were very pleased with my progress and say I don't need the x-ray and don't need to go back unless the girls are worried about me in anyway. I think the only worry they will have is will they still be able to lift me. Ena & Mhairi were so excited and pleased that I was doing so well they took me to Pets at Home and bought me a new indestructible toy. I need toys that I can't chew bits off, you see.
lots of love
Oliver xx

Update 13th Dec: Well our Oliver is doing well, he has now graduated to dried puppy food and he has some tuna through it, albeit we soften it for him. We improvise for him by putting loads of dishes on to a high stand and as you can see he manages fine.

21st Dec: Hiya it's me Oliver with a wee update, I am doing really well down to three feeds a day which I eat all by myself. Guess what I was so excited, I got to go out into the yard in the front of the kennels and had great fun played with two wee boys. And wait for it I must be getting a big boy now 'cause I lifted my leg for the first time. Then it was time for me to go in for a rest, not likely it took ages for them to catch me hehehe. Well, I am going away for a nap just now speak to you all later. Lots of love Oliver xxx

Ps: don't you think I'm getting big !! The girl's say there is devilment staring out of my eyes, as if !

Update 8th January:
Hi everyone well I had a really exciting day today. I went for my first walk sporting a lovely yellow harness, and I met a thing called a tractor it was really big and made a lot of noise, but I wasn't too scared at all, there were lots of lovely smells and I thoroughly enjoyed it.I only went for a wee walk as it as my first time out after my op.I have lots of things to get used to as I have been in here for about four months now and it was just great to get out and about. I ate all my tea when I came in. Gavin is coming to take me for a walk tomorrow I think, so that will be another walk with someone different. Although I know Gavin and his wife Irene really well.

Update 9th January:

And here they are at least my dad, mum will get her photo taken tomorrow with me. Irene & Gavin have been visiting the kennels for ages and take all the dogs for walks. At last the girls have let me go although it was very sad for them as we have been through a lot together, but they know I will be well looked after, and will visit often with my folks. Lots of love Oliver xxx.

Me getting ready to go home with my dad, just need to wait till Ena & Mhairi get their hankies xx
