Ollie is back home this evening.  Dr. Kolar said she is doing good and that her tummy is all better.  He thinks it was a reaction to being on heavy antibiotics for four and a half weeks.  I am so glad she is doing well.

Les picked Ollie up and brought her and Sweetheart to my work.  One of my co-workers is going to foster Ollie starting Saturday to see if he is interested in getting a grey.  Of course Ollie looked all sad and ratty.  Her hair is still pretty ugly and fuzzed out and some of it is different colors from laying in the dirt holes in my yard.  I assured him I would give her a bath and put a new collar on her prior to bringing her over Saturday.

Sweetheart had a blast at my job.  My co-workers all know her story after hearing me go on about her for months.  The last time she was at my work she was still pretty thin and her leg was still bandaged.  Today she was so happy and friendly, going up to everyone, wagging her tail and batting her pretty eyes.  I do so love watching her acting sweet and silly with everyone. They were all so surprised at how good she looks.  They said she looks like a different dog!  I must say that she does, especially with all the muscles she is building.

I will get some pics of Ollie once  I give her a bath.  Sweetheart is getting one Saturday morning too.  This should be interesting as I have never given her a bath since she had her very first on at Kolar's.  Instead of white she is sort of a yellowish, not the prettiest color.  Sweetheart will be accompanying me to a fundraising and outreach event in OKC from 1-4 Saturday so she does have to look her best.  I will have to break out one of her fancy collars too!

Hope all is well with everyone.  Ollie is FINALLY done with antibiotics and I hope this is her last visit to the vet for a long while.  Poor girl has had a rough two months.

Jess, Ollie and Sweetheart


  1. I'm glad to hear Ollie is feeling better, and it would be fantastic if she finds a new home! Of course Sweetheart has to look her best when greeting her public!

  2. haha sounds like they both enjoy being grotty! good luck with the batheing!

  3. So glad Ollie is going to your colleague. I reckon he'll fall in love with her and won't want to give her up.

    Looking forward to seeing photos of Ollie and Sweetheart.

    Getting worried since we haven't heard from you in quite awhile. Hope all is well! Peggy

  7. I agree with Peggy. I hope all is well with you and yours. We miss your blogs.
