The Tiny Heart: Happy 2nd Birthday, Oliver!

7.16.2012

Happy 2nd Birthday, Oliver!

Today is Oll's second birthday! I can't believe my little puppy is already all grown up. 

When I saw this photo of you on Petfinder, I fell in love. I just  knew I had to adopt you. But first, I had to change your name from Frankie (you didn't look anything like a Frankie, don't ya think?)

This wrinkly face stopped traffic when I walked you! (and still does to this day).

You quickly became attached to your big brother Jinx

You look so much like his mini-me that everyone still asks if you're related!


Your love for bones quickly developed, but you've now moved on to tennis balls

 
You let me dress you up as shark for your first Halloween (fitting, since you were biting everything)


You might destroy the garbage when I'm not looking, break out of the doggy gate like Houdini, and howl your little part-beagle head offbut you're a good boy. I promise we'll go to the dog park, play fetch with your tennis ball, and go to Petsmart to pick out the best toy they have.


Happy birthday my mini monster!

    1. He's better than he used to be, but he loves chewing things (even if it's not his toys). He took a bite out of my Juicy Couture wallet and ate my cell phone cover awhile back. I was pretty mad about those!
