Happy Birthday, Olly!!

Today, HarpoJacquet's MrOllivander CD RN CGC (known to his friends as Olly) is NINE years old!  Olly shares his birthday with littermates Hermione, Ally, Harry Potter, and Willow.  Sadly, Harry Potter and Ally are no longer with us so we celebrate their extraordinary lives, knowing they are forever in the hearts of many.

Olly went to Ivy's competition obedience class where we had a PARTY and he wants to share the event with you. ☺

Here is the birthday boy!

Getting ready!  Party hats, party favors and then, of course, there's champagne, cookies and nuts for the humans!

Getting Ivy to wear her party hat was a monumental task, but Debby bravely took on the challenge.  Olly and Jill are quite interested in the proceedings.

Finally!!  She IS more excited than she looks.

Olly is dressed and ready for the group photo!

Party-goers look pretty spiffy, don't they?  Ivy, Olly, Jill and Fred.

Now that the official party photo has been taken, Jill wants a treat ... or something!

Play time for Jack, Ivy and Fred!

Ivy fell in love with Jack and worked her little tail off trying to get his attention.  He, however, was not interested in her version of puppy love. 

Each dog got a party favor ... a moo tugger decorated in blue ribbon.  Jack and Jill show how to play with it!

While the dogs played, the humans toasted Olly with some champagne!

The birthday boy took a celebratory high jump in fine style.

And then he decided to do the retrieve over the high jump!  Good boy!

Fred and his mom gave Olly a nice present.

Wow!  A cool toy!!!

Ivy got a toy, too.

What a fun birthday party for a very special guy!

  8. Happy Birthday Olly. And congratulations Maryann. The moo tuggers - Timmy and Ben love theirs, and they are really wobbly and flexible, but so tough that they don't get damaged and can be played with safely long term. What a great find! Thanks for those Maryann.
