it’s friday, and oscar is ready to show you a few of his tricks. he is nine months old, weighs 78 lbs., and can sit, go down, shake, and stay. he even smiles for the camera. notice the second from the last photo where he is clearly mugging it up behind my back. oscar loves to tag along with us to the coffee shop, local market, post office, or just about anywhere we go. sometimes, when we near one of his favorite hangouts he gets a bit excited and pulls on his leash or cries. we got a lot of looks from passer-bys…german shepherds are quite expressive, and love to talk. they are also very affectionate, and like to please. we’re so thankful oscar has joined our family. did you know that owning a dog helps relieve stress? keeps us active, and social? combats loneliness, especially as we age? i’ve always had a dog in my life, even as a child growing up in nebraska. i’m a big fan of the species, and never tire of their unconditional love complete with licks on the face. so it is with great pleasure that oscar and i wish each of you a very happy weekend, indeed!
