Corey and I got Oliver from a family that kept him locked in little bitty crate in a garage when he was 7 months old and now I can't imagine not having his long, lanky self snuggled up to me at night, panting his stinky trash breath in my face as if to say, "thank you for loving me...now can I lick the rest of dinner off your face??"

I'll allow that Oliver is the best dog I know of in New York, but my parent's dogs are pretty awesome so he can't have the overall title. :)

Energy Level: Will somehow manage to leap sideways on you while you run WITH him. :)

This is adorable. It almost reads as if he's written a personal ad seeking a lady friend... for companionship only, of course, no funny business.
