Dog Blog: Ollie’s progress

Posted by indigodream on 18 November, 2013

Monday 18th November

I’m just using this simple post as a way of linking to photos of Ollie but I hope that regular readers will forgive me!

Ollie’s been with us for 18 months now and he’s looking sleek and fit – the best reward for the work involved in bringing him back to health after being rescued from neglect. Ollie bonds deeply, and for the first few months he looked so sad and wistful it would bring tears to my eyes – but just look at him now! He’s in fine health for his age, though, unlike most greyhounds, he’s not interested in food and has to be coaxed to eat in order to maintain his weight. We’ve had many discussions with the vet and we think it’s a behavioural rather than a physical problem but we’re keeping a close eye on him (as you might expect!)…..

He’s not actually meant to do zoomies – it puts a strain on the muscles that he’s slowly built up since he’s lived with us – but who can deny him the odd mad moment? 🙂

Ollie's forgotten that he's ten and a half - who am I to remind him!

Zoooooooomies!

Zoooooooomies!

Ollie looks a bit bony in this photo but he IS a healthy weight!
