Melissa tells the tale of her neighbor’s 14-year-old dog Oliver. She says he’s extremely independent and is often found wandering the neighborhood to bring special gifts to his human friends. He is also pretty intrusive and enters Melissa’s house when she’s not looking.


Oliver also expects all his doggy friends to be happy to see him. The more the dogs jump around in excitement, the happier Oliver is. Melissa says that Oliver has impeccable timing. He either comes early in the morning when she’s enjoying her coffee or walks in when they’re in the middle of a family party. Oliver feels he’s part of the family, and Melissa is perfectly okay with that!
