My New Sister!!

Mom disappeared last Saturday for several hours and returned with a scruffy little wisp of a dog. Olive, as Mom called her, padded quietly about the house for a few minutes while I watched from behind the baby gate in the bedroom.  Once introductions were made, Mom released me and I quickly set off to get a better sniff of this audacious house guest who made herself comfortable on MY window seat. Yes siree, Miss Olive went from tentative to entitled in a matter of moments. She walked around like she owned the place! I looked to Mom for help and was informed that Olive now did indeed have a stake in the holdings here. She was, in fact, my new sister! I was flabbergasted, mes chers.
But she's actually pretty cool--as long as I don't try to bother her in her crate or when she's napping. Gets a little testy, that one. She and Mom are working through it and I have been instructed to be more respectful of space (something I'm not too good at doing). Otherwise, she is cuddly and energetic, housebroken and loves to ride in the car. Mom can't understand why anyone would not look for her when she went missing and was picked up as a stray after the February blizzard. She loves to wrestle with me, which is my favorite thing about her:) Mom loves her crazy fur that sticks up on the top of her head and her very human-like eyes.

Olive about an hour after her arrival--collar, tags, and all!

While she hasn't learned to ring the bell, she does go to the door when she needs to go out.

  1. Congratulations on getting a new sister. She looks cool and we bet you're going to have lots of fun time together. Your window seat looks just like ours and is our favourite place too!

  2. She's so cute. You and Olive are going to have some great times together.

    XXXOOO Daisy, kendra & Bella

    Love the Easter Egg Cookies.

  3. We love a scruffy pup! I bet you and Olive will get to be like peas and carrots. Yep. It is awesome that she will play bitey-face with you, but maybe you could work out a 50/50 deal on the window seat?

  4. Welcome Olive...your a cutie pie...

  5. Your sister looks very cute and I'm sure you'll have lots of fun playing together.
    Don't be too nice to her though, new sisters soon get very comfortable and then they play with your toys and sleep in your comfy places even when you don't want them to. Make sure you let her know you're in charge. I didn't with Fly and now she bosses me around!

  6. Olive is a doll and what fun you'll have...Cheers!
