Meet the pup.


We found Ollie though, living in foster care.  We contacted the shelter, arranged a visit, and decided he was the pup for us.

He is about 5 months old, mostly German Shepard mutt.  He’s going to be a big dog. He adores Jess and loves his new home.

If they ever learn to combine their forces, I’m in trouble.

Jess chose the name Ollie. Ida’s husband, Chester, loved Laurel and Hardy. We thought the name was just perfect.

We’re in town for a few days for a funeral. One of Jess’ "honorary" Grandpa’s passed.  He was my SIL’s father but to Jess he has always been Grandpa.  He’ll be missed.

    I’m sorry to hear of the loss of “Honorary Grandpa”.
    Ollie is very cute. I love big dogs! And he should take good care of Jess.
    Much luck with him. He’s a lucky dog.

    Ollie is a good name for a dog.
    Sorry about Jess’ grandpa. I hope she will be okay.
