every once in awhile when i notice lots of new blog readers, i stroll down memory lane and share photos from the blog’s humble beginnings. today’s the perfect day to recap when oscar and ollie joined our family and how oscar got his fridays with oscar gig that’s a become a weekly favorite.
many of you might not know oscar started life as a rescue pup after his mother suddenly died. the litter was scooped up by milo’s foundation and scattered to foster homes around the bay. christmas 2014 oscar was looking for a human who would give him a home and some love. good thing as mr. style and i were looking for a pup after our beloved english bulldog’s heart gave out. some thought we were crazy to share our two bedroom apartment with a large breed dog. but that was our humble abode in san francisco.
can you believe i could carry this guy in my arms?
from the beginning, oscar would tag along on photo shoots. mr. style snapped his pic to chronicle his growth. look at those ears. he’s never quite grown into them. but i wouldn’t have it any other way.
then one day i floated a photo of oscar on instagram. it was an instant hit! the next week everyone asked where that cute puppy was? and a blog series was born – fridays with oscar.
this is one of my favorite photos. oscar hamming it up big time.
loved those days on the streets of san francisco! but then mr. style and i moved cross country to our new home in georgia. let me be the first to tell you oscar loves to patrol his yard and let those pesky deer know who’s the boss. he even roots for the georgia bulldogs now and then. go dawgs!
and from time-to-time, he’ll get into the holiday spirit (or try to).
but i was convinced oscar needed a friend. and so the search began. cat or dog?
well, a cat won hands down. oscar meet ollie, a maine coon kitten.
now i have two helpers come the holidays.
the word helper is used loosely around here. kind of like when my kiddos were little.
as you can see these two are quite the buds. ollie is a great addition to our family and keeps oscar on his toes! isn’t that what friends are supposed to do? thanks so much for strolling down memory lane with us today. it’s friday, gang, let the good times roll. but before we go oscar, ollie, and i wish each of you a lovely weekend.
