The “Other” Olivia


Hello everyone, CEO Olivia here. Being in the public eye, I’m always on my best behavior. But I also have my personal side, which might surprise some of you. I’ll explain.

For starters, I generally don’t get along with other dogs. My huMom believes I was isolated at an early age or was too young when I was taken from my litter. I can’t remember, but it seems I was never taught how to play or how to be social with other dogs.

I do hang out with other dogs, I have my Husky furriends, Kiko & Yoshi, but the initial introductions need to be closely supervised. I’m very reactive & can confuse play with aggression. I was also very close to my late fur bro, Micky Moo & I also had a dog furiend called Zee who I got along with. I seem to like boy dogs more than girl dogs.

My fursister  Suzie Q, had a rough time in her life & she too is reactive with strange dogs. We actually didn’t like each other at first. But after being slowly introduced over a month or two we became close furiends. We even share the dog bed now.

I also have a habit of barking at humans. And barking. And barking. My huMom took me to Toronto once, I really wanted to say hello to everyone & tried my very best to accomplish that, but at the same time I was very nervous. So many humans!

My huMom says I’m pretty clever. She also says I have a good sense of humor. I like to think that I’m the “good dog” in Knotty Toys for Good Dogs. I hope that shows online.

What about you, my fellow epi-warriors? What are you like behind the scene?
