Down the hatch …

Down the hatch …

My cats are pretty good mousers which I normally think is excellent, today not so much. I knew he had one cornered and he normally eats them. What made today different is he had in fact just eaten breakfast so wasn’t super hungry. I heard quite a bit of ruckus coming from the kitchen followed by the patter of feet’s running towards the living room. Now if I was more awake I would have realized what was coming I however…

This post comes from the desk of Olive, she wanted you all to know Gus’s true colors! Well fall has arrived here in New York very cold (did I mention I come from Georgia) and now it is also raining.  Any good southern girl can appreciate a good mud pile and I am no different.  Thursday it started raining and man did I love splashing in the puddles, but by midday Friday those puddles have turned muddy.  This is Saturday…

Eat Your Wheaties!

Eat Your Wheaties!

Gus and Olive start sheep camp again today at Cherry Hill Training Center.  When Jeff fed Gus his breakfast I heard him pronounce to Gus “Eat up you, got to perform well today!”  Without even thinking I walked into the room and spoke up for Gus “Dad I don’t perform sheep herding, it’s a way of life.”  After Gus and I straightened out Jeff’s line of thought I realized he didn’t say anything to Olive.  I have decided this means one…

The greatest place on earth…

The greatest place on earth…

The first dog I seriously trained was my labrador Sheba who makes a pretty high standard.  Olive however is quickly rising to the occasion by being excellent at everything (I may have a small case of my dog is amazing and does no wrong).  Next to sheep camp Olive is pretty sure puppy class is the greatest place on earth.  Today was our first puppy class together and she did great!  Olive was impressed with me hand feeding her treats…

Sheep Camp

Sheep Camp

We got to try Olive on the sheep and She loved it!  I can’t tell you how good for my soul going to the farm is.  It makes me so happy to see the sheep and my rabbits.  All the bunnies are doing well.  Gus and I worked on calmly walking up on the sheep and holding the pressure.  Had a wonderful day!

Swamp Monster

Swamp Monster

We lovingly call her squish and olive but mostly she is swamp monster. She finds all the dirt outside wallows like a pig in mud holes and eat everything. I am constantly yelling what are you eating most times it sticks and socks.  She is the most amazing little dog and is always happy. Olive is a very bright and seems to know when I’m upset as I suddenly find myself covered in squishy Olive.    

Snowy little bear cub

Our little adorable Australian Shepherd is completely unfazed by the freezing frigid and bitter cold that has arrived today here in upstate New York.  Olive will ask to go outside and then when I’m sure she is freezing to death she will refuse to come inside.  She will frolic and roll in the snow all by herself and it seems like she is having the time of her little puppy life.  When little Olive comes in she is so excited…

Best office assistant ever! 

Best office assistant ever! 

 I spent several hours today with Olive trying to make sense of our filing cabinet. Armed with my label maker, box for burn items, and stuffed Kong toy for Olive we dove in.  Olive as always was an angel and happily chewed while I spread papers all over the basement. Once everything was empty I started labeling. I began with bills we pay monthly followed by other things we need to file.  After I was done I felt so relieved…

     When we decided to get another dog, we decided to get a girl since Gus gets along better with girls.  I wanted to get her a special name tag, well really special everything (embroidered towels, collars and special toys) I didn’t go overboard at all.  I found a store on etsy that had the most adorable name tags!  I ordered one for Olive and will be ordering ones for Gus and sheba today as well.  The tag is…

She waltzed into my heart the second I saw her picture, I fell in love with her over pictures and texts.  When she walked towards me, I knew she was made for me. Olive is not just one more dog for us, she has already attached herself to both Jeff and I’s hearts (it took only seconds).  Olive, also know to me as Squish because she is so incredibly fluffy and squishy is an Australian Shepherd.  Gus and Olive hit…
