Something new we decided to start this year is a Dog of the Month! Each month we will randomly choose a dog that has been active at the club in the previous month. They will be featured on our Facebook and Instagram and we will ask the owners to write something up about their pup.
Our first ever dog of the month is Olive! Olive is a sweet Border Terrier that has been coming to the Country Club since October 2020 and has been back once a week for a swim ever since! We always enjoy when Olive comes swimming. She loves to swim and fetch and is always excited to arrive at the Country Club! She starts to get excited as soon as they pull onto Lorain Road!
We asked Olive's owners Dan and Gini Kolar to write about Miss Olive and this is what they said:
"Olive became a member of our household in March of 2019. She was a three year older Border Terrier whose parents were looking to find a new home. Our dog, Marshall, had recently died, and we were ready to welcome another dog into our lives. Dan went to tell Jason (Marshall's groomer) that our dog had died and we wanted to adopt a new dog. Jason immediately told us about a dog that needed a forever home who was also a client at Paws and Effect. Jason arranged for us to meet Olive and her owners at this shop. It was love at first sight!
Olive fit right into her new surroundings. She is a rock in the neighborhood, with the kids all coming out to pet her and play with her when she is on her walk. She is a tenacious hunter and some day will get the squirrel who taunts her from the tree in the backyard.
She loves traveling with us, especially to North Carolina where we discovered that she is a very good swimmer. We had heard about The Canine Country Club from our neighbors and we love the fact that she is able to swim all year long!
Jude and all the staff treat Olive like she is special, and in our eyes she is!
