Telling Tuesday: Olivia Edition

Well we have been away for a few days because we got a new foster sister. Her name is Olivia and she is a maltese. Momma got an email from her previous owner, Saturday night, stating that she started working again and couldn't handle her. So of course we couldn't resist taking in this little sweetie. All we knew of her past was she had two litters of puppies and was 3 years old. Although some handy detective work on momma's part led to alot more information. Such as her date of birth 5-9-2008 which means her previous owner lied about her age. We also found out that she didn't have any of her shots since March of 09....Can you believe that?!?!?! Anyhoo...

Here is her first picture. BOL She was trying to see the camera. BOL

When she came here she had her topknot put up in a little rubber band and all the hair under it was matted. Grandma spent an hour almost brushing it out. After it stood straight up!

Olivia is very thin and when we bathed her you can see just how thin she really is. You can feel every bone in her tiny body.

Uncle Puppy doesn't understand why he can't play with her.

Once she got her hair dried she looked very pretty!

Yesterday we took her to see Dr. Flanary.

We see she has gotten lots more donations for the Furry Furiends Food Drive.

Dr. Flanary put up the turkeys we got for donating the green papers

Here is Bobo's Turkey

and my Turkey!

Would you look at that tree! Its quite stunning!

Alright now we came here to get Olivia checked out and up to date on her vaccinations. I came along to make sure everything was handled properly.

She didn't like having her fecel done and having her bloods stolen...but it had to be done. We are happy to report not intestinal wormies and no heartwormies!

Dr. Flanary did make note that she is underweight, has a horrible ear infection and has stage 2 periodontal disease. So once she gains about 1/2 a pound she will go in for her spay and much needed dental. With the way this girl eats that should be no problem. She acts like she wasn't getting enough to eat..but being 3.8 pounds and she should be about 5 pounds I guess she didn't get enough to eat.

The reason we have been away so long is the previous owner contacted us 12 hours after surrendering her and told momma that she wanted her back cause she loved her and made a mistake. Well momma and grandma feel that she was just saying that to get her back cause she got an offer of money or something. She is a purebred dog that is unspayed and in these here parts they can fetch quite a pretty penny. So we had been putting her off and working up a neglect case and once we presented the Dr. Flanary's findings to her she backed off quite quick. So anyhoo now that that is over and she is officially a Mollie's Foundation doggie she will get everything she needs.

Pee Ess: I heard grandma and momma talking about her becoming an official country dog...Hmmm...instead of foster sister she would be my adopted sister. Hmmm...


  1. Yay! I'm so glad Olivia is with you now instead of with her previous owners. It's heart-warming to know there are some hard-working advocates out there like you making the world a better place, one dog at a time.

    Olivia is simply gorgeous once she's all clean and dolled up. It looks like she is loving her new life.

  2. Oooh! I like the idea of her becoming your adopted sister - then it wouldn't just be you against the boys - you'd have another girl to gossip with and gang up with against the boys. I'm just saying... I think it would be very cool if she became an official country dog!!!

  3. Olivia is just beautiful!!!!

    I think her fits in just wonderfully with da rest of you! heeeheeee

    and I am so happy that her has no serious health issues.......a dental and some TLC will have her good as new in no time! YAY!!!


  4. Hi Mollie Jo! What a beautiful girl Olivia is! We are so sad that her previous owner was so crummy (mom used a bad word about her, but we won't repeat that!) We are so glad that you stalled and that the owner decided not to take her back - because now she will get the love and care she deserves! And boy, if she becomes your full sister she will be even more lucky! She is just too cute - and it was so sweet of you to go with her to the vets - we bet that helped her to be less scared (since it sounds like she probably was not at a vet before).

  5. Olivia is lucky to have found you. What a pretty girl. You are her Christmas miracle!

  6. Olivia is an adorable sweet girl. We can't think of anywhere better for her to call home that Bobo and Mollie Jo's place.

    So we are all most especially glad to know she will be yer sissy and not go back to the bad lady.
