Apologies for the long delay between posts. We’ve been preoccupied with taking care of Oliver (pictured). He had a little health problem but that’s all cleared up now and it’s time to get back to blogging! While he was recuperating, Oliver read some of the blog and was very disappointed in the lack of dog-centric content. So in an effort to correct that injustice, here are Oliver’s five favorite things in the world:
1) Exclusively Pet & Bark Avenue Treats
Based in Milwaukee, this Wisconsin company makes treats good enough for people to eat. Oliver’s favorite are the Bark Avenue Cookie Nibblers.
Is it wrong when your dog doesn’t want to come home from the kennel? Well that’s the case when he stays at Alisha’s in Dodgeville. When we arrived home late one night after our flight was delayed, Alisha let us still pick up Oliver (way past closing time) so he didn’t have to spend another night in the kennel. Of course, Oliver wished we would have left him there.
Oliver is, shall we say, picky when it comes to dog food. This is only food that he doesn’t get bored with. Fromm’s is an old Wisconsin company, based in Mequon. Apparently, among other things, they developed the first canine distemper vaccine. They produce a variety of flavors all made with high quality, human grade ingredients. At the moment Oliver is eating Salmon a la Veg (fresh wild Salmon, real Wisconsin Cheddar, broccoli, apples and more).
