It was my little puppy-baby Oliver’s 1st birthday yesterday! I had my eye set on Oliver from the minute that the breeder’s posted his picture on their website.
I started thinking that we needed another puppy last Christmas, but when Tony told me that I had to choose between a present and the puppy I decided a present was more important (Sorry Ollie!). My birthday came at the end of January and I got the same response from Tony, “Present or Puppy.” I still wanted presents! Valentines Day came rolling around and by that time I was ready for our newest addition. It just so happened that Oliver was half price and came with ALL of his shots!
This time, unlike the time we picked up Shlubby, I had already chosen Oliver’s name. A lot of people ask how we settled on the name Shlubby. We kind of bought Shlubby on a whim and I was thinking of names/words I liked on the way to pick him up. Shlubble happened to be one of the words I made up. Since Tony’s Italian, we settled on Rocco Shlubble, but since then he has just become Shlubby.
In honour of Oliver’s 1st birthday I made him a special puppy birthday cupcake. The dogs seemed to really enjoy the cupcakes and gobbled them up quickly.
