{Life with Oliver}

Oliver isn't quite so mellow anymore. His energy levels definitely went up as the week wore on. He also got a lot bigger. I guess he is a growing boy. Adjusting to a dog has been interesting. I know he is not a child, but sometimes it feels like one. We get up 3 times in the night to take him out to the bathroom and he eats 4 times a day. It is a big change to be so responsible for something, but a good change. Oliver loves to bite things and never having had a pet before, I'm still a little scared of his sharp puppy teeth. I just always have a chew toy handy that I stick in his mouth (as you can see from the pictures). He comes, (selectively, when we have a treat), sits and goes down. He is a little bit of a wimp. Today he was freaked out by the faucet outside. He barked at it, tried to paw it, and finally ran away. Regardless, we think he is the smartest, bestest, cutest, funnest dog around. Yay Oliver!

He is so cute Lindsey! What kind of dog is he? He even has a cute little boys name, (so it's fitting he acts like your little boy!)

Love the wink on that last one! :)
P.S. How do you know Caitlin? She and I were in the same ward together growing up! Small world! :)

Okay, I had to come back a second time to look at Ollie. Sooo cute. My favorite image is where Ollie not only has a toy in his mouth, but one in his little paw (it looks like a doggie dumbell). Cute. Cute. Cute.

Lyndsey, go to www.dooce.com and read about their puppy's latest adventure...you don't wear many hats(literally) do you?

Oh my adorable. He is such a cute puppy...it sounds like he is adjusting well to life in the Stewart home. Seriously, could there be a better picture than "the wink"-that should win a contest. Love you!

WOW! Cutest dog I have ever seen. Lindsey, it is getting warm out and I believe we need to head out for an afternoon/evening of photography bliss. Let me know when you are up for it!

Your puppy is SO cute! I just love him. Rylee is allergic to dogs so I'm glad you post so many adorable photos. I'll just have a dog vicariously through you!
