#1 here. Last year, when Ollie celebrated his first birthday, I was on the other side of the world, in Japan. It was Mr. G and Ms. N who helped him celebrate that enormous milestone. This year, we had been planning to have a celebratory birthday dinner, but have had to cancel because of our new confinement, although Mr.G and Ms. N will sneak over this afternoon for tea and "bones"!
Ollie has come such a long way since the day he arrived at Poupounette Central:
He was lucky to have a mentor as wonderful as Fernant! Someone he could really look up to!
He was very snuggly right from the beginning!
Pretty soon, he and Genji became friends:
This is me and Ollie when he was 4 months old:
As Ollie grew, his tongue seemed to grow even more!
He got to meet Tommy's sister, Sophie!
And got to go the beach for the first time!
Here we are together when he was 11 months old:
Pretty soon, Ollie was a match for Fernant in size!
When I had my knee surgery in late January, Ollie stayed with Mr. G and family, and got to play with Paddy, who belongs to his sister!
During the spring confinement, Ollie helped a lot with gardening:
And here we are when Ollie was 18 months:
And Ollie grew ever more handsome!
He got to go on an adventure in Normandy in August:
And now he is 2 years old! This photo of the two of us was taken yesterday:
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OLLIE POO! You have grown into a wonderful boy, handsome, sweet and playful. You stepped into a pretty gigantic pair of shoes and you are filling them beautifully!
