Olive on the other hand is wild and carefree. She’s happy to see anyone who passes her way and would prefer to be held all day. She likes to pull towels off the bathroom rack and drag them into another room. She pays no attention to the TV because she’s always got her mind on something else. If she’s scolded, she just runs into another room and creates havoc there instead. Unlike Hazel, Olive can’t fall asleep unless her paw is touching some part of her dad Dennis’s body.
Hazel was the only female in a littler of 5 from a family on Long Island – where her parents Dennis and Joe took her home at 10 weeks old. Olive was a rescue from the Ramapo Bergen Animal Shelter in NJ. She was saved from an unhappy situation and acclimated to life in Manhattan quite well. It was a struggle at first but she rules the roost now.
Hazel and Olive are not your ordinary pet, in fact, these two pups are living the spoiled life. Their favorite day of the week is Wednesday – that’s the day Ivonne comes to do the housekeeping. The two pugs sit and stare at the door from about 7:15AM until she arrives. Needless to say, she brings them cheese danishes from the coffee cart on our corner. They get absolutely hysterical at the site of Ivonne entering the apartment and don’t let her out of their site for the next 4-5 hours. Besides watching Ivonne, their other favorite thing to do is go out for long walks in Central Park.
