♬ Don’t you think we’re better together ♬ ♬ Oh ♬ ♬ I think we are ♬ Good morning, guys! Ollie and I just came to A field, like a path in the woods, where we’re going to go take a little hike and, it’s been really windy today but it’s kind of sunny and Mary needs to do some hair cutting on Ollie so we figured we’d come out and take a little hike to get some energy out before we do a haircut. So, let’s go check this out. ♬ soft music ♬ (Footsteps and leaves crunching) ♬ soft music continues ♬ Good dog! ♬ ♬ Hey guys! I just got back home. I was actually at a viewing for a funeral that I’m actually doing the service for the funeral tomorrow and yeah, that’s part of my role as a pastor is helping walk people through the hard reality of death and I think it’s just a reminder, like, as I’m like, I’m like dressed up about to take off these clothes to help Mary groom Ollie, but it’s just a reminder that like there’s a lot in our lives that happens behind the scenes of the camera that we don’t show every piece of life, like me doing a lot of my role as a pastor, and so I am going to change my clothes so I can help Mary. (Peter) But she has been, look at this pile! We can make a whole lot of Halloween costumes out of that. We sure could. Yeah, and like I don’t know it’s kind of hard for us when we’re vlogging because we want to show, like, a glimpse, I mean in 10 or 15 minutes we can’t we can’t even show a minute from every hour. You know, we can’t possibly encapsulate our whole day or our whole life. But, um, sometimes we purposefully choose not to pick up the camera and just like have time for our family or like, you know, just some non-camera time like we were saying the other day but we really enjoy sharing the journey with you and but there are also some parts about the journey that we can’t share, that’s not appropriate, like Peter going and doing somebody else’s funeral or something like that. You know, there are some things that just can’t be filmed. But the parts that we are able to film we enjoy picking up the camera and bringing you guys along and today part of that is Ollie grooming. So, I’ve done, I’ve done the easy part. (Peter) The body’s pretty much the easy part, and then there’s, pretty much the legs are the hard part. Wouldn’t you say? Yeah, I think it’s pretty uncomfortable for him. (Peter) Yeah. (Mary) So it’s good to have a second person kind of scratching his head and keeping him happy. (Peter) Cuz he’s got skinny legs. Don’t you? (Mary) Did you see that tail? (Peter) Skinny legs. I’m gonna get ya! I’m gonna get ya! (Mary) I’m gonna get ya. Oh, thanks for the kiss! (smooching sounds) Haircut time! Ollie fell asleep, so we’re just finishing trimming his feet. (Mary) I kind of wish we could go to sleep when we were at the hair salon Sometimes I feel like I do. (Mary) Really? Oh, yeah, it’s like a head massage. (Mary) I guess I thought I was getting a cool angle, but I don’t know about that. ♬ (Peter) All right, here’s naked poodle! He is all trimmed and we took a shower, and he’s all bathed, and he just went better hurry. What more could you want, buddy? (Mary) And he had a special dental chew. (Peter) Yeah, he did Such a good boy. And Mary is being super resourceful, and she is making dinner. One, two, three, four, five, six. (Peter) That’s perfect. Six layer dip. (Peter) Nice! So, yeah, we don’t have a ton of groceries. How many times have we said that in the vlog? (Peter) Like, every week. (laughter) It’s just it’s, (Peter) It’s life, you know? It’s life. (Peter) So, thank you, honey! Of course! (Peter) And I felt like pretty, um, I felt like we conquered that haircut. (Mary) Yeah, we did like the, the works. (Peter) The works, yes. Some haircuts are like “get by” haircuts and some… (Mary) Like, we don’t spend a lot of time on the face or we don’t spend a lot of time on the legs but this one (Peter) We went to town and Ollie got the works because in, well, when you guys are watching this vlog tomorrow starts birthday month! You so excited for your birthday month? I actually like Oliver’s face kind of fluffy, but I like his body really close. (Peter) Mm hmm. And since we were on a roll, we went ahead and cut his face really close, which works because that means we don’t have to clip it for quite a while because it’ll grow out. (Peter) Yeah. Um, so it’s really nice to like get it all done (Peter) Yeah, I think it’s a cute change whenever he’s all like, all slimmed. He looks like a little lamb. Where’s your dog? Should we go find your doggie? Where is it? Where’s your doggie? Is it in there? No? Is it on? I’m doing a creative seventh layer, and I’m putting chips in. (Peter) You know what this reminds me of? Yes! We were married for like two months, and we had a Super Bowl party and we invited the family that Mary babysat for. Invited them over and Mary made, now, where was the recipe? It was like on this this… Like the recipe was like Was it? I don’t remember. It was like on the side of the like, taco box. (Peter) Yeah! And it was like a taco dip. Yeah, it was basically taco dip. But do you remember the other thing? You took me when we were in Chicago as a date, as you gift, you took me to this place where you make recipes. (Peter) Yes! It was funny. I was thinking about that the other day, and I was thinking that’s the sort of thing like, that would like sponsor vlogs. (Peter) Oh, funny. It’s the sort of company that would want to, like, get the word out. (Peter) Yeah. But we didn’t have a vlog. We bought tickets and we went to it. (Peter) Yeah. It was like, they had the buffet of all of the ingredients. They walked you through how to make three meals that go in your freezer, and then you bring them out and bake them whatever you want them. (Peter) Yeah, I think was like self-led though. It was like this big kitchen and there were like multiple like people. And I think you could pick which meals you wanted to make. (Mary) Yep. (Peter) And like, um, (Mary) And I think there was one that was like a taco one. (Peter) Yeah, it was, I remember that and that is so fun! I found that on Groupon back when we were in college. (laughter) (Mary) He thought there was something exciting on the fridge. It’s a little thing of… (both) Dog treat snacks. Is this what you want? (Mary) You have to get a shot of this. Hold on. Okay, watch. Get really close to his little lips. (Peter) I think It’s focused on him. (Mary) Oh. He liked it the other time! (Peter) Get it! (Mary) Is that good? (Peter) Such a silly boy. (Peter) Alright, back to making dinner. (Mary) Alright, next beans. More beans. (Peter) More beans. (Peter) So, you did refried beans, and then some chips, and now we’re doing black beans? Is that what it is? (Mary) Yep! I think I’m gonna do salsa next, then black beans. (Peter) Okay. Make the chips a little salsa soggy. I like cold beans. (Peter) That’s weird. (Peter chuckling) (Peter) You’re so cute. Oh, you’re looking Christmasy in those pajama pants! (Mary) Ollie thought we were, like, going out somewhere because, I like, have different pants on. (laughter) (Peter) He’s so intuitive. I love how when he has his hair short, and we give him a bath you can see straight through to his skin. (Mary) Yeah. (Peter) His little pink skin. Oh, youre such a good boy, and you want to know something else I love? He has a mole on the top of his snout. Where is it? (Mary) Oh, right, right there, right? Or no? (Peter) It’s there somewhere. (Peter) Anyways. (Mary) That’s something about owning a poodle that they are very high maintenance for grooming so either you pay somebody pretty good money to groom them every four to eight weeks, or however often? Or you do it yourself, and it takes a couple hours. (Peter) Yeah. We choose to do it ourselves. ♬ (Mary) Now it’s baked and I’m going to put some sour cream on it. The chips actually got like crispy! They look good. I’m gonna put some jalapenos on Peter’s side. First impression? Woah! Feel that, crispy! That is not what I expected! Awesome! Let’s eat it! (laughing) And for dessert… pumpkin pie! I had that for breakfast too. (Mary snorts) All right, we ate our dinner, and it was really good but I have been coughing a ton and a lot of mucus, and the only thing I had to spit in that I could reach was one of these chips. So, I’ve literally used a couple of those as mucus cups now and that is so disgusting, but better for the environment, so, better for the environment than plastic cups, anyway! But, um, I need to go do my therapy. Actually, I need to go reaccess my port so, um, yeah. (Peter) Alright, time to get Mary’s evening meds out of the fridge. We’ve got cipro in here. Oh, c’mon. Oh, fail. We have lots of plastic bags. We like to reuse those and what is this one? Aztreonam? Yep, all right. Let’s take these in. And… (Mary singing) Life with a needle in your chest. Life with a needle in your chest. And good news… I can move my arm! (Peter) Yeah, last week’s needle must have been…I don’t know. We can’t figure out what the rhyme or reason behind needles not working, and how many, how many needles is that, the last three weeks? I lost count. Seven, maybe? (Peter) Woah. (Peter) But it’s working. It’s not hurting right now, so let’s hope it stays that way. Or six. Six or seven. (Peter) So, anyways, we’re gonna get ready for bed and (both) As always, we will see you tomorrow. Good night! ♬♬ Somebody wanted to sit in my spot, so… (Peter) Oh, you guys are having a little snuggle? (Peter) Ollie, you want to say goodnight to the people? (Mary) You have tired eyes. (Peter) Oh, you’re so tired. (Mary) Did you have fun today when you went on a walk with Peter? ♬♬

  14. willydawgs says:

    I've had Portuguese water dogs and the curls and grooming are REAL! It's much cheaper to groom at home, for sure, but time-consuming and the doggies get tired. Ollie is a wonderful and patient boy. You all make such a lovely family!

  16. Learning To Fly says:

    Why would you not want privacy? Is that not being normal? Most people don't really want to see someone's whole life on YouTube or TV. All persons involved would be very bored, real quick. Like honestly sometimes mindless chatter is annoying to everyone at times.

  17. Lyme is Lame says:

    Anyone that may see this, do you know what video editing software Peter and Mary use? I see the cameras linked often, but I don't think I've seen the software, and it looks like they can do more than you can do with iMovie alone. Thanks!

    sorry this comment is so long but I just want to let you guys know  I love you blogs they are very entering. some times I think you should have a reality TV show. I know I would watch. seeing  how Mary can stay so positive with all she goes through   battling cystic fibrosis. makes me think how  my problems in life are not so bad  and if I just have a positive attitude  I   can and will get thought them . cause sometimes you just  have to, as Mary would say  "do what you think you can't do".  May God bless you and keep you safe In his loving arms Mary Frey.  keep making videos they are great. God Bless  you too Peter Fry  you are a wonderful  husband and caretaker to marry   you guys are better together.  finding  your channel has been a bless to me in some odd way, with all the hate and negativity in this world it is nice to see positive , and loving people.

  28. Liesbeth Bruinekool says:

    I’m also on home ivs at the moment and also love to reuse those bags. Unfortunately my port stopped working so they placed a PICC line for now until they can replace my port (it’s my port that’s also infected so I have to stay on iv antibiotics until it’s replaced).

  29. Kat says:

    I think it’s safe to say we will love all the Ollie footage you can give us. 😊

    Hello, Mary, Peter, Ollie, and Frey Life Community! Can you please tell me the name of the instrumental song and band/musicians playing at the very beginning and then again at the 4:49 mark of this video? Ollie's haircut is very handsome, indeed. So happy that Mary's port is behaving today. You all are such a blessing in my life! Thanks so much!

  60. Terri's Thrifty Finds says:

  68. Sandy F says:

    Ollie is sooo cute! Since it is getting colder, do you still clip him as often?

  69. Sabrina Riley says:

    What kind of grooming tools do you use? I have a goldendoodle and have tried grooming her but nothing works with her hair…

  70. Yesica1993 says:

    I want to live where they live. It's like they're in the wilderness, while still being in civilization. I can't get over it!

  71. Yesica1993 says:

    Ollie is so gentle when he takes the treat. Aaaww!

  72. Kathy Girlygirl says:

    Mary, I used to give my Cocker Spaniel haircuts and a lot of people don't know that the blade gets really hot. Do you have the spray to squirt on the blade to cool it off? It really works good. It's called Andis Cool Care. Doesn't Ollie have a coat for the cold days?

  73. Service Dog Colt says:

    😂😂😂❤️That’s so funny he fell asleep I just share a video of how my service dog Colt falls asleep when I pamper him too, he will sleep when I cut and dermal his nails and he also falls asleep in the shower when I bath him. He literally acts like a king, I have to wake him up to switch sides LOL 🤣 Ollie is super cute. Love you all❤️

  74. Sarah Ristine says:

    They have a few places like that in this area (central Massachusetts) called Dream Dinners.

    Can I order a shirt without using PayPal?

  76. desert hippy says:

    +I know from watching your vlogs all the time that you do Ollies grooming but I'm just going to say I think he was a little mad at you this time or not liking the cut…lol the way he just stood in the hall forever with that look of I'm not a happy camper!!!

  77. cobweb afternoon says:

    Ollie is so cute and so gentle! I grew up with a poodle and love them!
    I'm loving your food ideas lately. I bought and cooked a spaghetti squash the other day because you guys made me hungry!! It's hard to think about food and cooking when you are chronically ill (can anyone else relate?)

  78. michiganmom857 says:

    Mary, why do you keep his coat so short? Does he not need a bit heavier coat for winter? He is so so adorable!

  79. Lesley Cunningham says:

    I have a miniature poodle

  80. NJSMKMMS says:

    Do you have a rug or coat for Olly to wear when it's cold. His hair is always fairly short and it snows there right so it does get pretty cold? We are in Australia and it doesn't snow where we live but we put a rug on our dogs at night or if it's cold during the day in winter, they are inside outside dogs, they always sleep inside. They have normal hair so it's most likely thicker than Olly's cut short. I get you cutting it as short as possible when he is relaxed but dogs feel the cold too And a rug would help.

  81. hannah nur says:

    I was watching one of your vlogs and I believe you mentioned that because you have CF it caused you to develop diabetes. I myself have a genetic disorder that causes diabetes. I wasn’t born a diabetic but by the time I was 15 I was diagnosed. I dont know how to classify my diabetes because it doesn’t fit into either category type one or two. I don’t have an autoimmune disease so it’s not type one and I also I’m not “super overweight or extra sedentary” so my Diabetes wasn’t caused by my lifestyle but by my genetic disorder. So I was wondering how would you classify your diabetes? If your diabetes was caused by a genetic disorder but you still produce some insulin would that put you somewhere in between type one and two? I tend to get the symptoms more like a type 1, I want to try an omipod instead of injections, would you recommend it?

  82. Carolyn Heap says:

    It looks like Ollie exploded in the living room. Isn't it a special moment when our sweet pet companions fall asleep on us? That warm cuddly minutes! Oh, I've done that food/station thing. Soooo good!

  89. Zoe Gregg says:

    My sister fell asleep while she was getting her hair cut when we were kids. There was my mom on one side of the chair holding her up and the stylist on the other side, cutting.

  90. 2listening1 says:

    11:29 You guys, did you use MORE chips to scoop us the dip that had chips already in it?! I almost died of happiness looking at it!

  91. Darby Brewer says:

    Gosh, if I ate like you guys ate, I'd be back in palliative care. My airway closes if I don't eat a certain way. The underlying cause is not something that is treated in Canada. Had I not sorted things out for myself, they would have killed me in there. Many blessings, my dear. I wish you well. Your attitudes are very inspiring. Much love. <3

  92. 2listening1 says:

  98. Gary Bays says:

    Did anyone else see the random man go out the door when Mary was talking about re access her port in the kitchen??? In other news Ollie ❤️is absolutely adorable I just want snuggle him for day even though I know I can't 🙁 💕
