We adopted a new dog!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :crazy: :crazy: I am beyond thrilled to introduce our new girl Olive. We picked her up today. She is a beautiful 10 year young brindle (and grey ;) ) boxer lady.
Long story short; She was found as a stray by the SPCA Ste Agathe during the summer and I was contacted to help place her. I fell in love with her but Uncle Monty was sick at the time and he really didn't like other dogs so there was no way we could adopt her ourselves. So we posted her for adoption. I was happy when her wonderful foster mom/volunteer with the SPCA Ste Agathe, decided to keep her. Recently and unfortunately, Olive new mom found herself in a situation where she has to move and cannot keep all of her many dogs. As fate would have it, we are ready to have a new oldie around and Olive is exactly what we've been waiting for. So here she is! More photos will follow, we are waiting for our new camera.

What a lovely old girl, you are a wonderful person for taking her in. Keep the pics comming.

She's sleeping beside me on the couch right now :) She was so good when she met Vegas-totally ignored his obnoxious behaviour. Oh did I mention she looks exactly like an old mini version of Vegas??? It's so cute. I can't wait to go to Bark n Fitz and buy her an overpriced collar tommorrow! And a sweater, she needs some insolation in the weather.

I was going to say, "buy her a big cookie for me" but then I realized, she'll be eating raw right? Lucky doggy. :)

Lol, ya she'll be switching to raw once she's settled in. But there's nothing wrong with a little cookie here and there right ;) ?

But there's nothing wrong with a HUGE MEATY cookie here and there right ;) ?
There I fixed it. And no, there's nothing wrong with that. :)

Uncle Monty really showed us how amazing the oldies are. I believe that was why he came to us, to show us that. Now there's no going back! Oldies forever!!!!!!! :crazy: :love:

Thanks guys! On Saturday we went to Bark n Fitz and got her a new pink polar fleece coat, pink plaid collar and matching leash! She looks so cute. She even wears her fleece in the house. It keeps her old, arthritic bones warm. My mom was with us and bought her new granddaughter ;) a fancy leather collar with a pink rhinestone paw print charm on it! It'll be her going out collar, lol. I can't wait to get some pics to post!!!

October 17th, 2005, 11:44 AM
OMG, that must be so adorable! I can't wait to see the pics of her all dolled up!

October 17th, 2005, 11:58 AM
What a cutie. She is lucky to have such a good mommy. Great of you to take in this older lady. Good luck and keep us posted

More photos will follow, we are waiting for our new camera. Do you have it yet or what? :D

October 17th, 2005, 01:10 PM
No! I am getting impatient! I'll take a pic with Chris' cell phone camera for now. It'll be fuzzy but it's better than nothing.

November 1st, 2005, 10:18 AM
Aww. I just love boxers... especially the old ones that just want a warm hug and a bunch of treats :love: . Give her wonderful smooshy face a kiss for me. :)

Give her wonderful smooshy face a kiss for me.
I just did! She's doing really well. Settling in more and more everyday. You can see she's coming out of her shell, she's happier and playing with her toys these days. The poor girl has a bit of pneumonia :sick: though, so she's on antibiotics :( Yuck. She is getting extra spoiled now though.

I was slacking off with the photos but here's what I have for now!

December 1st, 2005, 09:12 PM
awwwwwwwwwww, she's SOOOOO cute with her little coat.
Having met Crystal's poochies, I can honestly say that they have won the doggie lotery BIG TIME!!! Keep the pics coming -- and not just of Olive, Vegas too!!

Congratulations. It's great to hear of somebody adopting a 10-year-old dog. :thumbs up

She is adorable and if you can tell from the look of a dog...she looks like a sweetheart. .

December 1st, 2005, 11:02 PM
She's a cutie. I love her "frosty" face. :)

December 1st, 2005, 11:05 PM
Frosty! That suits her new coat!

Thanks twodogsandacat :) Oldies rock!

My Christmas-wish would be,that we would have another 10 million people like you and others on this Forum,then there would be no lonely,sad dogs/cats in shelters.
If I am allowed to be a bit mushy:D you warmed my heart this morning:)

December 2nd, 2005, 08:19 AM
