oscar is off to the vet today for his annual check-up and shots. overall, his health is quite good. he suffers from allergies from time-to-time, but other than that there’s nothing to report. he’s still a bit of a string bean as he tends to graze his food instead of devouring it in one sitting. lately, he has been liking salmon and potato grain free food. he’s always up for a walk, or playing fetch, and he loves hanging out with other dogs. when he was a puppy we rarely took him for a car ride as he suffered from car sickness. but the past few months it looks as if we’ve outgrown that phase (thank God). he’s been on the muni (san francisco’s public transportation), to the beach, and on an airplane. not bad for a 15 month-old german shepherd. his current weight is 75 lbs, but i imagine once filled-out he’ll be around 85 – 90 lbs. he gets a kick out of ‘fridays with oscar’ and definitely knows it’s his weekly gig. most days he shows up ready to ham for the camera. today he was in quasi-form as he was far more interested in going for a car ride than posing for photos. he really does like visiting our vet. when he was younger he would cry and pull on his leash as we approached the front door. thankfully, he’s also outgrown that phase as people would stop and stare to see if we were being unkind to our puppy…(it was mostly social anxiety, but disappeared with leash training and puppy socialization).
on that happy note, oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend!
