…to the life and times of Oliver. Just kidding…. sort of. Photography, family and friends… that’s been the tag line of this blog since I started sharing a couple of years ago, although most recently everything seems to have been focused on Oliver, the new family dog. Truth be told, I am getting the itch to get out with the camera again to photograph the beautiful Maine winter landscape, but until that itch grows strong enough to make me forget about the frigid pre-dawn temperatures, I’m going to settle for more of the “family” aspect of the original blog tagline. I’m hoping that those of you who follow this blog in anticipation of my landscape photographs of Maine will indulge me?
As you can probably tell… he’s a happy little soul. He walks politely on the leash when there are two people with him, although he also just recently started to enjoy walking solo with only one of us. Although we live a mere half mile or so from the golf course, Oliver doesn’t seem quite ready to make the walk there, especially since while we’re there we expend so much energy. We’ll eventually get to the point where we don’t need a ride there, but in the meantime, he does love to visit, and I swear if I even mention the golf course, he charges straight for the car as soon as we go outside. After walking a couple of hundred yards onto the property, we feel pretty comfortable letting him off the leash. He’ll venture maybe twenty yards away at most before stealing a glance back over his shoulder to make sure we’re still there and close by. Combined with his recent recall training – and a bag full of yummy treats – he always comes back when called, and while there, he has a grand time running, smiling, chasing, fetching, exploring, and finding sticks to chew on!
