Ollie’s Family Connections

None of the following photos are of Ollie, but you can see how much he looks like some of the other dogs of his breed.

This one could almost be Ollie!

  1. You are right, they are all alike, but the colouring does make quite a difference, and those eyes… I also felt like petting them all. They look so soft! Thanks for sharing, Pete!

    1. Thanks, Robbie. One of his brothers was the Blue colour, and very attractive. But we had set our hearts on Ollie because he was more affectionate as a pup.
      Best wishes, Pete.


      1. Oh, how interesting! Does the dog parent have to be blue, or can that come from a grandparent? How many pups were in Ollie’s litter? I know you talked about his siblings a while back. Ollie really is adorable. Best to you, Pete.

        1. The parent doesn’t have to be Blue, Jennie. Ollie’s brother Max was Blue, but his dad was Sand, and his mum Brown like Ollie. There were 7 pups in his litter, one died and six were sold to buyers. Only one stayed in Norfolk, his ‘identical’ sister, Milly. She was nearby in Dereham, but sadly died last year from kidney failure.
          Best wishes, Pete.

    1. He goes to a professional dog groomer, Arlene. She washes him and sorts out his wrinkles. But we have to watch out for seeds, thorns, and anything else that lodges in the wrinkles.
      Best wishes, Pete.


  2. Whenever ticks get on a Shar Pei, you can hear them sing as they march through the wrinkles:
    ♬ Over hill, over dale
    ♬ As we hit the furry trail,
    ♬ And we ticks just go rolling along!
    ♬ In and out, hear us shout,
    ♬ Counter march and right about,
    ♬ And us ticks just go rolling along!

  3. Unique dogs are always enjoyed by passersby on walks making them fabulous ‘social’ breeds. Great pics. Love the Blue one. Thanks for posting Pete.

    1. Thanks, Chris. There are so many Labradors and Retrievers around here, Ollie certainly stands out. His brother Max was Blue, but he moved away to Essex as a pup, and we haven’t seen him since.
      Best wishes, Pete.

      1. Haven’t seen or heard from him?
        Oh my. If he went to a farm, he could be in danger and could have become a victim involving fowl play.

        Terrie, my wife used to keep a flock of laying hens. . . We know how rough a mad pack of those creatures can be towards dogs. 😉
