Nawww! Poor Ollie! I'm sorry but that last pic made me laugh! :rofl: he looks very 'comfortable' there :rofl: Poor boy!

He's being very well-behaved but the cone has to stay on for now because he's a shocking licker!

I could believe there is some husky in there ;)

Yes, sometimes he looks very huskyish to me :) Other times he just looks like a teddy bear

he is just gorgeous and you are doing such a great job, I love reading your blog posts.

You probably don't want to hear this but I bet Ollie will be snapped up soon!

*Edit. Just watched the video and it was fantastic. Ollie is so lucky that you came into his life.

tdierikx - he does indeed. He's still very young and has very puppy-ish ways :laugh:

Thanks Monique - we love him dearly. It's going to be extremely hard to let him go but I am hoping that if we get lots of applications for him, we'll maximise his chances of finding a good home. It will definitely have to be with someone who loves giving cuddles.

He mostly sleeps in our bedroom but we have been moving him to different rooms of the house in his crate to sleep just to get him used to sleeping in different places. He's always very quiet and well-behaved.

A bird pooping on Ollie's head will bring him good luck. Although he already has you so he's very lucky indeed :)

He has a meet and greet this Saturday! Although it all turns on whether he'll get along with the family's 9 year old ACD female!

Here be Ollie and the dog brick. He is sooooo cute and attentive

Kelpie x Teddy Bear - stocks are limited. Actually only one left :)

Nawww. It's great that Ollie is getting a potential new home, hope he is on his bestest behavior! :D

I am also sad because I do so enjoy following his progress and all the beautiful photos and stories you post about him.

What a smart boy! Was that his first time with the Brick?T.

Yes it was - he is soooooooo clever!! :) I am also finding this week quite hard because as the very real prospect of adoption looms, I am torn between being happy for him because the home would be awesome (if the meet and greet works out) and feeling very sad/guilty at the thought of giving him up. I know he's only been with us a month but we have already become very, very attached to him even though we always knew that his time with us was only temporary, he is not our dog and that our 'objective' was to socialise him, get him healthy and find him a wonderful forever home. :( In my heart, I know that will have a better life with another family (being a solo dog or part of a two dog family will be better for him than being part of a 3 dog family :) but it's very hard to hand him over aftre nursing him through kennel cough, training him and seeing him settle in so well here - he seems to THINK that he is part of our family and that THIS is his forever home. I keep telling myself that there's another dog out there that needs help, too ... I guess this seems laughable to people who have fostered heaps of dogs :p

I don't think it gets any easier each time for foster carers, you just get better at dealing with those emotions I think.

He's truly had the best brought out in him by you, well done. (we need a hats off emoticon here)

I agree, I don't think he could've got a better interim home :)

I can't imagine how hard it is, but maybe it will help to focus on how happy Elbie will be to have his house back :p

Guess who I just saw a petrescue profile for? :D Fantastic job KTB!

Thanks! He's also on the AWDRI facebook here. He's such a gorgeous boy. The meet and greet has been temporarily postponed because of an illness in the applicant's family - so Ollie will be with us for a bit longer. I'm very sorry for the family but I am happy to have the teddy bear with us just a little bit longer. I hadn't quite geared myself up to say goodbye yet :p
