on your new fluffy :fluff: addition, Alyce!  And KUDOS :thumbsup: for adopting.
Ollie :fluff: is adorable! :wub:  Can't imagine anyone giving him up (their loss, your gain :original:).

As Sandie & others have pointed out, you'll hit some bumps :sweatdrop: along the way.
Not because Ollie :fluff: is hard to train, but because his previous owners did poorly by him.

But with love and perseverance, you'll both come out tops. :thumbup:

Let us know how the vet visit went (& continue to post photos :pictures:)

Sending Bichon hugs :hug: & kisses :kiss1: to Ollie :fluff: (all the way from Singapore :siflag:)

 :thankyou: I'm really so appreciated of all the support I've received here! Seeing Ollie sick has been no fun. Today I took him to the vet. The antibiotics seem to be doing the trick. He is a lot more energetic, and eating more  :swing: ! The vet said he needs to gain four pounds, it seems he wasn't fed enough at his previous home :-( So we will work on that. I will go back in two weeks to see the rescue league vet so he can check on him.

On the very positive side, I had to leave Ollie alone for the first time since I got him (only one hour, not fun!) he was able to get out of the room that I left him in. So when we came home he came barreling out the front door. My friend tried to hold him but he freed himself, and ran straight for me. He didn't try to run anywhere, just wanted to jump and lick my face!! This was probably the best moment of my life; seeing this little white fluff ball barreling towards me excited as could be :loveword: :fluff: 

Thanks everyone,

Alyce & Ollie

Yes Bichons are little escape artists, they will do anything to be with their people!  I'm glad he is doing well.  :bouquet:

Thank you Alison!

 :yahoo:  How wonderful!  You will have this in your memories FOR EVER!!!

Just be careful, one day he will realize Mommy always comes home, and he CAN take an adventure.  So you do need to work on a better entrance.   :laughing:  Well, that didn't come out right, NO entrance could be better than that one!  But you gt what I mean, I'm sure, ha haa.

No worries  :original: I understand! I do NOT want him getting out and getting hit by a car, stolen, or lost. I think those are my worst fears. I expedited the order a doggie play pen for him, because his previous owners abused the use of a crate I don't think crate training will be a good idea  :no2:  . Here's what I ordered: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D5P846Y/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1  There were lots of good reviews for it, so I'm hoping it works out well for us!  :original:

That is a lovely pen you have ordered.  Well done.  I agree Ollie will gain weight with your TLC.

 :thanks: Ollie is doing well :) his kennel cough is getting *much* better! He really needs groomed, but until the kennel cough goes away, there isn't much we can do (except daily brushing). I just love him to pieces  :loveword: . Every day I come home he does the "bichon blitz" which is adorable (I have videos already).  SO FAR he has been great home alone! He is never home alone for more than five hours. No potty issues so far  :thumbsup: (knock on wood!), but I have him on a strict, timed out, feeding schedule so I believe this helps a bunch. Looking forward to being part of this wonderful community, and sharing more about Ollie  :fluff:
