Life is Good
Tomorrow is the yard sale. How I wish I could do THIS in the morning instead........ Oscar has a great life. As you can see, he gets enough to eat and plenty of snooze time. He has actually trained my son and daughter-in-law to cook for him. He gets brown rice, eggs, meat, sometimes fruits and veggies. He gets all the good stuff that they have left over. He loves cookies.
Do people believe that they own dogs? I think it is the other way around. I can't see Oscar out there in the garage, wearing a little apron with change in the pocket, haggling over the price of a pair of old shoes. Sniffing them, yes but not selling them. He has his priorities straight.
