HERE IT IS! He does this all the time - I can't believe how hard it's been to get a photo of it! He sticks out his tongue when he sleeps. Oh, Oscar. You are so funny!
Then if we move around too much, in it goes.

Another funny Oscar thing is that he closes his eyes in nearly every picture! For all of these, he was fully awake! The little tongue sticking out is my favorite thing about Oscar. It makes me laugh every single time. :)

Just too hard to capture!

This is our outdoor kennel. It's nice for Oskie, especially, because when we are gone, he can come out here instead of being inside in the crate.
This is a close up of the reason I posted these pictures! The honeysuckle! It's just starting to bloom and is about to go crazy. Mind you, this is only it's 2nd year! It's taken over and it's so fragrant and wonderful. I think I might hang out in the kennel myself for a while! :)

My favortie thing about Oskie is too hard to capture! I have a picture on my cell phone - I wish I could figure out how to get that picture on to my computer! Until then, I thought I'd show you a picture of Osk that I love. This picture is so funny! He loves to tool around the yard and poke his nose in and around all of the plants.
Did I tell you that he got stung by a scorpion?! Just like poor Frankie last year - remember that? A clever blogger would link that post HERE (pretend it's highlighted), but you're stuck with me, so just try and think back. ;) Anyway, I was making coffee and heard a big YELP and looked over and he was rubbing his nose on the carpet and that scorpion was making a break for it! Of course Frankie was running behind my legs - she remembered and wasn't offering Osk any help at all! :)
I'm still going to try and capture Oskie's little habit. Now I felt I've built it up too much and you'll be disappointed, but I'm also up for the challenge! Almost had it this morning! :)

Here comes the sun!

Frankie looooves the sun. She knows where all of the good sun patches are in the living room and she knows what time they are at their warm and toastiest. Frankie follows me around everywhere, except mid morning when she can always be found in her favorite living room sun patch.

And I love this dog so much that when we were moving furniture around, I took into consideration that sun patch, and placed the furniture around it. What? Too indulgent?

Oskie (we rarely call him Oscar anymore) is sun patch neutral. He never seeks them out. When the dogs are outside, it's the same thing. He is on the hunt - checking out every leaf and bird and possible pee spot. Frankie does her business and flops over in the grass or on the pool deck. It's hilarious!

Next post, I'm going to write about my FAVORITE thing about Oskie. And oooh, is it a goodie! How's that for suspense? ;)
