hummm how to explain about oscar in words ??
oscar the labradane or just silly big dog to me :)
he came to me from the dogs trust in august 2008, he was 10 months old , he had been in their for 2 months and all they new was that he was a stray , we went to "look" after my old lab cross taz passed away at the age of 15 (he also came from dogs trust when he was 1 year old) and oscar was suggested to me by the nice (i think :) )lady their , we took him for a walkies and he behaved extreemly well and played with me and was good on the lead for my youngest son and my girlfriend , we took him back in and the guy behind the counter was desperate for me to take him so after thinking about it overnight (more to do with god he is big will he fit in the car etc)we were back their at opening time the next day to say yes we want him :) , a week later we went to pick him up and yes he did fit in the car , my lad didnt have much room on the back seat though :)
night time was erm fun !!! for 6 weeks , they gave us dog parents an adoption talk before we could collect said dogs and in that talk we were told yes they will whine and perhaps bark for the first few nights but that will pass quickly when they are settled and they will be fine with being shut downstairs ,ha yer right !!! 6 weeks of howling whining scratching at the door oooh and barking not to mention bad toilet habits later so i left the dining /kitchen door open and not another whine bark or scratch or puddle on the floor !!!!
damn dog doesnt like being left alone , he now sleeps on the top landing of the stairs and is most happy .
that also means he gets to lick me when my alarm goes off along with big waggy tail banging into my blinds (which makes a loverly noise first thing in the morning)then he likes to either jump on the bed and more licking or he just snuggles up with me for cuddles and wont get off the bed !!!
