Ollie, my loyal canine companion, is six today. He was born on the 12th of February, 2012. Never have I owned such a trouble-free pet, and one that takes loyalty and good behaviour to the next level too. Not only did he fast become one of the family, he also gave me reason to walk outside every day, and to meet many of the people in this area that I would otherwise never have encountered.
His adventures became the mainstay of my blog, and he has attracted fans from all over the world. I rarely go anywhere without him, and he has accompanied me on all of the recent holidays I have taken too.
He is notoriously camera shy, so I have had to use old photos for this post. On his birthday walk today, he was able to spend it all with his friend Toby, the Jack Russell Terrier. He went for a dip in the river, and enjoyed all his favourite spots and smells.
Later on, he will get a new toy, and something special to eat. He is middle-aged now, having reached half of the years usually lived by his breed. But he hasn’t changed at all, and is still just as much fun as when he was a pup. Happy Birthday, Ollie. X
