A Day In The Life Of Ollie

Meet Ollie. A spunky, adorable Pomeranian who loves adventure, and lucky for him (and us), we got to go along on a few this month. We’re going to take readers on a tour through a day around town visiting hotspots for our pets. Ollie is De going to give us the inside scoop on all things dogs, pets and even some tips for pet parents! Let’s get our morning started in A Day in the Life of Ollie!

Meet Ollie

a day in the life of ollie 1

Our client relations manager, introduced her pup to our readers this month. Here are some facts about him, and make sure to check out his Instagram account ollie_fargo_pom to see what he’s up to around town!

  • I love setting up camp under my sister’s high chair to catch the food she throws.
  • I don’t know my birthday, but I joined my new family in June of 2014 when I was around 2 years old.
  • I love going to new places with my mom like Drekker, Moorhead Freeze and my grandma’s house.

1. Morning Walk

GNodland Morning walk final 0346

Why Here?

This park features lots of activities and different landscapes for me to explore. From watching friends on the basketball court and different events at the picnic spots to visiting the waterfall area and even seeing some cool tricks at the skatepark, it’s never a dull day at Rendezvous Park!

GNodland Morning walk final 0286

Park also includes:

  • Baseball/softball fields, disc golf, hiking and biking path, playground, soccer fields and volleyball court.
  • During winter months, an ice rink with a warming house and sledding.
  • Public and rental shelters with charcoal grills.
  • A waterfall area for rental—this space commonly hosts wedding or recommitment ceremonies!

2. Groomer

Every so often, I spend a little time with my favorite groomer, Rhiana Gallagher from All Fur Paws! In a relaxed environment, I can not only feel fresh, but look the part for all of the photos I take with mom! At the salon, I am taken care of from start to finish, including some deserved playtime! Rhiana works with her clients to find the best way to care for us during our appointments, giving us what she calls the “petsonalized” experience!

3. Doggy Daycare

While my family is busy with work or activities, I get to hang out over at Fetchers. At this all-in-one doggy daycare, I get everything a dog could want indoor and outdoor playtime, which includes not only a place to be active, but a place where I am supported and stimulated when I’m not just running around! Another plus, while I love my other dog pals, I get to spot some of my feline friends when they visit too!

6. Dog-Friendly Places

The best part of the day is the part I get to spend with my family. Lucky for us, there are a ton of places around town where we can spend time together! We’ll end our days together at any one of these places, maybe we’ll see you and your pets out sometime! Just make sure you’re on a leash and on your best behavior when you visit these great places.
