Happy Birthday

Oliver Twist Fraser (Ollie) turns one today.  We brought him home to join our clan last fall, Thanksgiving weekend in the US, on November 27.  

I located Lindcoly Kennels online, where they've been breeding Cairns for about 40 years.  We drove up the weekend before Thanksgiving to the little hamlet of Freckenham, northeast of Cambridge, to have a look-see at the pups on offer.  We took the 5th grade daughter, so it was assumed we wouldn't be coming home empty handed.  

Ollie is a great little dog, a nice companion for me that gets along with everyone, both human and canine.  He goes to doggie daycare three times per week because we want him to be well socialized.  The door-to-door service they offer is amazing.  If I'm not home at pick up or drop off time, the doggie daycare owner lets herself into the house and either gets him out of or puts him into his kennel.  It doesn't get much better than that.

Above is a pic of Ollie at the doggie center back in the spring. He has a great time running around with his doggie friends every week.  Plus the owner boards him when we travel, so it's a great set-up.

There are days when I wish I could sleep late, that I didn't have to roll out to take him for walks and potty breaks in the cold and rain.  But look at that face... impossible to resist his scruffy terrier charm.
