two years ago this christmas, oscar joined our family. for those of you new to the blog i thought you might be interested in watching oscar grow from a puppy to full-grown canine. all of the photos were taken in san francisco as that’s where he spent the first year of his life. i think he’s secretly a city dog just like i’m a city girl. ‘cuz he grew up walking the streets, stopping for coffee, and jetting off to the beach or golden gate park. oscar even hopped on the muni from time-to-time and learned how to get along with his fellow bus-riders. and he was part of a weekly dog walking group to keep him socialized with his compatriots. hands-down that was his favorite day of the week and it was a joy to watch how he interacted with the pack.

but oscar lives in georgia now. and i would be remiss if i didn’t mention how much he loves his new home. there are deer to bark at, and squirrels to chase. when it’s hot he gets to tag along to the yogurt shop and slurp down a tasty treat. and he even claims our guest room as his own… including the bed!

are you caught up with your christmas shopping? i’m about half-way through, but think i’ll start to wrap as i go. if i wait until the last minute i just might get crabby- who wants to wrap a dozen gifts in one sitting?

oscar and i wish each of you a lovely weekend! happy shopping, happy wrapping.

thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to stop by Style at a Certain Age! if you don’t want to miss a post, you can sign up to receive a daily email, and you will never miss a thing. i’m also on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram

  2. I loved seeing Oscar “grow” through pictures – seems like he’s such a well behaved dog. Mine are totally out of control 🙂

    • ha, ha! oscar has his moments. especially if he’s spied a deer and wants out of the house. but overall he is so dang smart and wants to please so he listens.

    You and your sidekick are gorgeous here. Between you and my relative who also has a German Shepard, I have a new-found fondness for that breed! So sweet. Hope the two of you have a wonderful weekend. Happy wrapping. I’ve had to send off a bunch of gifts all over creation–evidently my family needs to get its act together so I can hand gifts out in person! Lots of celebrating this time of year–I may do some holiday baking–our tradition each year is the making of the toffee and biscotti and gingersnap cookies to mail off to folks. Someone has to do it, right?

    • have you had time for a baking session, sue? i’m caught up with everything christmas so now i just have to squeeze in some time for those cookies. although i did buy two tins of danish spritz cookies as a back up plan!

    Thanks for sharing Oscar’s “baby book”! He is a very handsome fella and so well-mannered. I’m sure he loves the squirrels. My Chis Jacob and Riley go nuts if they sense one is in the backyard. They go tearing through the dog door on the screened porch, sure they are going to catch him this time. Have a good weekend. Very cold here and a bit of snow…good weekend for books and chicken soup. xoxo

    • oscar was a cutie, that’s for certain. i don’t think he quite grew into his ears. but that’s what makes him oscar!

    Such a cutie! Love those big ears! Dogs are great photo models (when they want to be). Thank for sharing wiht us that lovely photo gallery!

    • thanks, maria! i think oscar’s big ears are his trademark. he never quite grew into them. but isn’t he a ham when he wants to be? he knows when the camera is aimed at him.
