Hi Sarah & Paul
Hope you are well, just thought I would drop you a line to say hello on Oliver’s 8th birthday. I’m sure you’ve seen lots of dogs since Ollie but you’ll remember that when he arrived with you, he was in many ways a typical 2 year old collie, all energy and no focus. He had come from a strange background and we still can’t believe that no one wanted him.
I can’t believe that he is 8 already as the last 6 years since we got him have just flown by. I attach a whole bunch of photos from the last year or two to show you how much he’s grown up and how he’s turned from a ball of energy into a settled and sometimes grumpy (especially in the evenings) middle aged dog. He can still chase deer and squirrels with the best of them but at heart he’s just a one man dog who wants to do his own thing.
His life is set now for more adventure as his adopted Dad has just had a mid life crisis/career change and we are off to Switzerland in November. I expect that he’ll be very happy now that he’s going to have marmotts, Swiss dogs and lots of strange new Swiss smells.
Anyway, keep up the good work – it’s a good thing you are doing.
