This is Oscar. His ears are so soft that it makes babies and angels and chinchillas jealous. Seriously. If a 1500 thread-count sheet had babies with a velvet curtain, it would still not be as soft and silky as his ears. And the weird thing? His ears always smell nice. (Told you it was weird.)

Sometimes he’s kind of a princess…sitting in his throne basking in the sunshine. What you can’t see in this photo is that the other chair in the window is occupied by me, also basking in the sunshine.

He’s definitely a world-class sprawler. He is firmly convinced (given much past experience) that humans are here for his comfort and entertainment, and to use as cushions.

He thinks that if I can’t find him, I can’t make him go to bed. He tries to look innocent while doing a pretty poor job of hiding.

He also takes naps in the strangest positions. Just looking at this makes my neck hurt. (And look at his ears! Oh my goodness. So soft.)

But, in the three years that Oscar has been part of my family, there hasn’t been a single bad day that he couldn’t turn around with a snuggle and that freakin’ adorable face. And those ears.

I love this dog.

Peace, love, and canine friendship,
