“Oscar has such an expressive personality. He has mastered communicating just short of speaking. When he sees a doggy friend of his walking on the street or in our courtyard, he has a way of saying, ‘Dad, why am I in here, and my buddies are out there? Let's get going, pronto!’ An ideal afternoon for Oscar is sitting in the window, watching the downtown traffic go by, while keeping a tight time table on his outdoor schedule. He likes to go out every four hours and will make sure you know it.
I had one other dog in my life before Oscar named Smokey. I can't believe I was blessed twice to have what I believe is truly this man's best friend. From waiting by the door every time I go out, to giving me loads of kisses each morning when we get our day started, I couldn't imagine this time in my life without my precious furry friend.
Oscar's even inspired my brand and business. I'm working with Kristina Robertson of Barkley Square Pets (they groom and care for Oscar) on developing a new line of pet hair care products to keep pets fresh, comfortable, conditioned, and primed for hours of family cuddling.
