Hello! My name is Olive and I am a six-year-old Japanese Chin. Some readers might remember my brother, Alfie, who appeared in the Topanga Messenger years ago. He was a former presidential candidate who ran against Hillary and that orange hair dude but he lost.
My mother adopted me from a broken family when I was a year old. She drove all the way to Stockton to get me and all the way back to Topanga. As soon as I got to her house and met my brother Alfie, I realized this adoption was a very good thing. My mom treats me like a queen. Well, I am. You might say Iâ€™m demanding but Japanese Chins are Royal. At one time only an emperor could own us. She feeds me raw organic kibble topped with mozzarella cheese, roast beef, and/or turkey. I do appreciate this since sheâ€™s a vegetarian.
Sometimes, I have a hard time communicating with her so I tilt my head from side to side (itâ€™s a Chin thing) trying really hard for her to understand what I desire. It doesnâ€™t always work but I forgive her.
I also live here with a Bengal feline named Kimba, who is extremely needy. He always wants affection. I have a huge backyard which I share with two beautiful labs, Blackie and Benny. Sometimes, when nobodyâ€™s looking we kiss and cuddle. I love people and whenever my mom has company, I usually smother them with kisses, especially this one guy who shall remain anonymous.
Life here is pretty perfect but I do have one complaint: Iâ€™m not allowed to chase the rabbits and squirrels that live in our back yard. Other than that I am a very happy Chin.
