Pooches of the Week: Bear & Ollie

By | March 22nd, 2015|Categories: Pooch of the Week|Tags: |

As shared by Carmellia, one of our drivers of the Playtime Express.

BEAR is a two year-old black Pomeranian and her brother, OLLIE is also two years old, but he’s cream in color.

BEAR may be small, but she’s feisty and can hold her own. She lets dogs know that she don’t play. OLLIE on the other hand, is a little more laid back. Carmellia loves them so much.

She lets them ride shot gun on the Pooch van when she picks them up and drops them off. Even though they can walk, Carmellia carries them everywhere. She spoils them badly.

She gives them lots of love and treats when they get home. They simply can do no wrong in her eyes. 🙂 They are very special to her and that’s why she had chosen them as POTW.

Congratulations to BEAR, OLLIE and their Mom, Jessica – they each get 4 hours of daycare on us!
(Not Mom, just the pooches – he he)
