Hmm... I wonder how that blind got so twisted? Those dirty paw prints on the wall certainly aren't any clue. Nor is the puppy frozen in action - obviously he wasn't doing anything wrong :) (Please excuse the poor quality of this photo!)
If it's not too hot outside, Oliver sometimes gets to hang out on the screened-in front porch. When this happens, he loves to peer over the banister at his best friend Tana's house in hopes that she might be in her front yard. His other favorite porch pastimes include chewing things he's not supposed to, trying to dig up the carpet, running around in circles, and generally being so cute that you can't get mad at him.
Finally! Freedom! As soon as that porch door opens, he's off! Luckily, there's no need to worry as we know he's headed directly to Tana's front porch, where he will wait in front of her door until a human is around to let him in.
The long play session with Tana combined with the morning walk makes for one tired puppy. Oliver comes home from Tana's and fights sleep for as long as possible until he passes out on the beautiful brick linoleum floor (you know you're jealous). Just in case you're wondering, he does have a dog bed and a blanket he could sleep on, but sometimes exhausted puppies like the hard floor just the same.
By the way, if this is a typical weekend day, you've just seen Oliver's life from 5:30 am to 10 am. We're not even to lunchtime yet!
