The Life and Times of Olive the Pug...

Sometimes it's just not possible for a dog to have a better day.

  Yesterday was one of those days for Olive the pug.  On our way home from lunch, I noticed that the pond was very flat and reflective.  When I see that during the day, I just want to go down there and take pictures.  The weather was okay but it was pretty cold.  Still I asked Olive if she would like to wander down to the beach in the golf cart.  Well, if you have followed this blog for any length of time, you would know that the golf cart is Olive's Favorite Thing  (it might even trump cheese) and wandering down to the beach is her Favorite Thing.  So, in spite of the cool weather, she just couldn't say no. 


Once down at the beach, I saw some cool things and Olive smelled some cool things. 






Then we got back into the golf cart and came home.  At home, Olive's new bed was waiting for her on the couch.  That bed might just be her new Favorite Thing.  She loves it and she didn't even have to wait until Christmas to try it out.  Can a dog have a better day than that, I ask you?  I think not.  At least not until tomorrow....

Oh goodness, the life that Olive leads is to be envied even by this human. Beautiful "reflective" image. I want that bed, maybe I would sleep better in that.

And they say its a dogs life! some people would give their right arm to have a bed half as comfy as Olives.. Love your reflection shot aswell. beautiful

Nicki said...

Wow - what incredible reflection in that first water shot and yep, I'd say Olive is living the Pug's Life.

Funny, my kitty Ike got a new bed for Christmas but is sleeping in it as I type (only way to keep him out of my computer chair).

I hear you. When our cats were around there was always a cat on my lap when I was on the computer. I used to complain about it. Now I would love having one of them around. Oh , well...

Don't tell Disco, but pugs are my favorite kind of dogs - I am allergic to them though - their fur is different then Disco's. Have you evern looked at Tweedles That's Me Blog - she is a pug too.

Beautiful reflections on the lake. Olive is a cutie. It's great that she enjoys the golf cart ride. That would be a fun way to get around.

Glad that both you and Olive had a great outing, Barbara, and now Olive has more time to enjoy her present since it came early and looks comfy too. It was a grey and foggy day here too on Sunday so your fog shots in a previous post were descriptive of our weather.

barbara l. hale said...

We've had an inordinate number of foggy days here this late fall. Weird!

Eli OKeefe said...

That. Pug. Is adorable! Is it alright if I borrow her for a little bit? :) The first photo of her is the best; the shadows and the lighting are both excellent!
God bless,
Elisabeth

Myślę, ze piesek miał wspaniały spacer i przejażdżkę wózkiem golfowym. Ty przy okazji zrobiłaś śliczne zdjęcia . Pozdrawiam.
I think that the dog had a great walk and ride in a golf cart. The way you did beautiful pictures. Yours
