Vivian Walsh's best selling book, "Olive, the Other Reindeer," is based on her Jack Russell Terrier. Olive is a relentlessly active, determined, well-loved, and sometimes confused lap dog. Olive is flattered that in the animated version of the book she was portrayed by the fabulous Drew Barrymore. The TV special was put together by Matt Groening, creator of the Simpsons.
