It's time for me to stop being so coy. Meet OSCAR. This Ethel Impersonator was left at the SPCA by an owner who lost his home. Oscar was up for adoption. We don't know what happened to his previous owner.

Our rescue friend took him home to briefly foster him but he had a full house and couldn't keep him. Oscar fit with our pre-existing color scheme, though he does need some highlights like ours, don't you think? Maybe a little white on the chest and on the toes?

Oscar is around 11 months old and is a totally gnarly teenager. He thinks everything rawks. He didn't know how to do a lot of stuff like play with toys or how to go for walkies or how to eat chews so we've been busy teaching him how to do stuff like eat bully sticks:

And bug sissy:

And play keep away:

You see why I have been too busy/too tired to post.

Tomorrow Oscar is going to the v-e-t for a bit of the old neutering. My ma ape tells me I have to quit calling it the nut cut but he has an undescended testicle so I am just calling it as I am seeing it. Everyone wish Oscar some good luck. My ma ape is wondering how he is going to be able to handle the rest time because this dude has some energy.

I am taking suggestions for things to add to the list of things I need to teach Oscar (he already knows to be scared of The Wally. And he is). Also, someone suggested that I hump some sense into this dude and I have most def done that. I have pictures to prove it. So tomorrow during the nut cut. Er, the SURGERY I will post some pics and tell you more about Oscar and The Grouch.

If I had a sibling I would teach him to eat only half of his food and politely leave the rest for me. Also to stay the heck away from the bed and to stand nearby and take the blame anytime I get into the trash. Not sure exactly how you teach these things (since I sure as hell wouldn´t do it by example), but there must be something on the web.

Welcome Oscar! We'll be sending lots of good "find the peenut" vibes to the vet tomorrow, and lots of "whoa, enjoy the wacko juice and giggle gas" vibes to Oscar.
Are you sure he's not yours and Ethel's long lost love pup?

Just think of the free time you will have while Ethel and Oscar are occupied to finally get some serious work done. While those of the pointy, upright ears are ripping up the yard, you can create works of great genius, eat all the cookies, and have excellent naps!

Oh and Wally ... teach him nothing! You don't want those two organizing or anything.

Hey Wally, how long is Oscar sticking around?
I put up the picture of Gracie the Corgador on my blog - I referenced and linked your blog in the post, for purposes of corgador comparison, if that's okay. If not, let me know and I'll take it down.

Your friend, Lenny

sorry, we are a bit behind. Or we would have warned Ma Ape that the pain killers they gave Teka after she had her "operation" failed to slow her down a bit. Muzzer recommends heavy doses of alcohol applied directly to the human.

Of course, I'm sending healing goober smooches for the Oscar Boy. Hope the cut goes well.

So..... is he a permanent addition to Wally World? What have you done so far to train him? I think it's always best to be unpredictable... that way you'll keep him a little off balance.

Goob love & smoocharoonies to you, man,
