Sir Oliver

Hello, I'm Sir Oliver
We got a note from Sir Oliver, who lives up in Maine.  He wished me well, sympathised about Deacon, and is eager to have Sherman come live with us.  Sir Oliver is a Sable-Merle Collie, born on 6 April 2011 in Rumney, New Hampshire.  Sir Oliver is helping fill the huge hole left behind by Benjamin's Bridge Crossing.  You may remember us talking about the Great White Collie having crossed back in March.  Benjamin's Pawrents were still having a ruff time living without a Collie, so the Great Dane told Oliver to paw up and adopt them.

His pawrents are having a great time with him.  They are taking teaching him how to go for walks, housebreaking and just loving him.  He is a smart little guy and keeps his hoomans on their toes.  We are so glad that he adopted his hoomans.  We are looking forward to his family coming down to the Keys next winter and visiting Sherman and me.  Below are some more pictures of young Oliver



Today was the last launch of the space shuttle.  The shuttle Atlantis is now up in outer space.  Dog Dad remembers watching the launch of the Shuttle Columbia in Toledo, Ohio back on 12 April 1981.  He recall the two tragedies that occurred as well.  The Shuttle did a lot of good things, so we are sad to see it go.  We salute the astronauts, they are brave hoomans that we often forget unless things go wrong.

Dog Speed,

Essex

I am glad Sir Oliver adopted them - he will bring them so much joy. Just as Sherman is going to bring your family much joy too :)
