Description

Vancouver Islander Adrian Chamberlain always wanted a Porsche. When that turned out to be too expensive, he got a pug instead. Adventures with Ollie is a collection of vignettes describing his family’s exploits with a headstrong, playful pug named Ollie. Adrian describes the delights of housetraining, teaching a dog new tricks, smuggling Ollie into summer cabins and trying to dissuade him from rolling on dead sea creatures. Adventures with Ollie provides an insider’s view into dog culture that all pet owners will recognize.

About the Author
Adrian Chamberlain has always wanted to be a rock star. While holding down a day job as an entertainment writer for the Victoria Times Colonist, he indulges his fantasies (albeit on a reduced scale) by playing organ and piano for The Soul Shakers, a Victoria rhythm-and-blues band.

Adventures With Ollie

As Chamberlain (aka “the manservant”) says, there are only two types of people “pug lovers” (PLs) and “non pug lovers” (NPLs). Ollie’s adventures are ingeniously revealed in this delightful collection of 65 short stories including Puppy Play School, Rover Romper Room, Doggie Dancing and Doggie Boot Camp (K9 Fit Fur Fun) classes. Chamberlain’s self-deprecating humour will leave PL’s and NPL’s in stitches as he contemplates such life-altering situations, as what if dogs could tweet?, WWOD? (What would Ollie do?) and early dog dementia. His motto is “be nice to my super friendly dog or I won’t like you!” Here are the comical antics of Penny the Miracle Pug, Tripod (the 3-legged rescue dog), Bob the Wonder dog (who was abducted by a wolf and lived to prove it!), and Daisy the pug who scares herself when she farts.
