Labrador of the week :: Oliver
How old are you?
Where do you live?
Swimming, playing find the biscuit, tug of war on ropey with Mum & Dad
Who is your best animal friend?
Scrappy, a Pattendale Terrier who plays ropey with me and doesn’t give up!
Who is your best human friend?
My Mum & Dad
Please describe your perfect day:
Wake up, breakfast, car ride to beach, swimming in my lifejacket because I have poorly legs now, greeting and playing with Mum & Dad’s customers (they are dog groomers), getting my own way at all times, having loads of attention, another swim (I never want to come out the water), dinner, playing with ropey, find the biscuit game, being carried upstairs to bed and kissed goodnight.
Do you like cats?
I love chasing them but can’t seem to catch them!
Any bad habits:
I’ve got a lovely bark which I use when I can’t get my own way, I also find humping mum’s leg when I want attention is quite effective, I once did this in the middle of a show ring and got loads of attention!
What is your favorite website?
Please feel free to tell us anything else about yourself:
My vets told my Mum & Dad that I wasn’t going to be here in Xmas 2009 because of my arthritis. However, my clever Mum & Dad bought me a lifejacket which also acts as a float. I love it, I can swim for an hour, sometimes two a day now. I told my Mum that I would let her know when my time is up and I still have a long time to go yet!!! Mum has written our story which has been published in many places.
