Yes, that’s my secret – I have a new brother!!! And he looks a lot like me!! And his story is a lot like mine. He had a very special home all his life but then his mama could no longer look after him through no fault of her own. That’s what happened to me too. But I will let my Mama Jean tell you all about him. Right now I have to go keep him company! Belle
Oliver is a 13 year old sheltie who has come to join Life With The Critters after finding himself desperately in need of a home. Thanks, Bev of Second Chances , for helping him find a safe place to land.
Oliver is a wee bit hard of hearing (well, maybe more than a wee bit as he didn't react to the cat meowing loudly right behind him!), a wee bit visually impaired, a wee bit arthritic, and right now a wee bit confused. However, he is as regal and charming and sweet as Belle and I’m sure he will fit in very well.
After a long trip to get here (including sitting in a traffic jam for positively ages!), he checked out every corner of the yard and house, met the piggies and the cat and all the dogs with great dignity, showed me that he is as much a scrounge as Belle is when it comes to food, and then flaked out by my feet. Later on, I'll post more pictures of his first day here.
Welcome, Oliver. Find yourself a comfy bed, have a sleep, and all will look so much better tomorrow when we take you on your first early morning walk in the pasture.
Your other mama loved you, Oliver, and always will. I know she told you that a zillion times these last few days. And I will love you now. Welcome home, sweet boy. I am so very happy to share my life with you.
