Oliver Eating Style

We noticed ever since he was a puppy that Oliver is a picky eater. Not only he cannot tolerate certain types of food (some dog foods will give him severe diarrhea or vomiting), but sometimes he just doesn't want to eat. He was skinny when we got him from the puppy store, so I did all kinds of effort to feed him and make sure he ate his portion of food every day. I used to sit down with his bowl of dry food and sometimes feed kernel by kernel to him until he started eating on his own. We said that he needed to be 'primed' to eat :)

Fall is Coming

Woke up this morning and saw this...


The leaves are turning yellow... fall is coming!! Seems that it just happened overnight, nature is amazing :)

Oliver is probably done swimming in the lake for the season :)

Bought a house!

Whew, it's been a while since we posted here and there is a good reason for that! We just bought a house!! We were busy house hunting for a while and finally we found the one that we were looking for and we closed about a month ago and completely moved a couple of weeks ago! Very exciting!!

Doodle Romp

It's been a long, hard winter here in IL. The weather is nice for a change this weekend, so we were excited to go to our first Doodle Romp in Northern IL!! This event is held at Lakewood Dog Park in Wauconda, about 15 minutes from where we live, and there was supposed to be many doodles come to this event.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Our first Christmas in IL. It's not that easy to find a place to cut your own Christmas tree in the Chicagoland, surprisingly. Snowy day in McHenry county and the place didn't have a very good selection of trees, but we found the one for the year: a colorado blue spruce.

Moved to a House

After spending about 6 months in a one bedroom apartment, we finally decided that we needed more space for Eddie and Oliver. The apartment we lived in was ok, but not very pet friendly. They have dedicated building that allows pets but hardly any grassy area to walk them. We initially chose this place because we needed something fast and this place has availability and allows large dogs. Now we decided that the place is not enough for us and we needed to find a bigger place.
