Ohhh, my puppy has a first name...

Meet Oscar.

Or Oscard if you're Smella.

If you'll recall, Oscar was my sister's puppy. But the sister has to move, and where she's moving doesn't allow cute, snuggly, smooshyfaced puppies.

Which is a damn shame because this is the best puppy ever.

The sister dropped him off on Friday, and since then he's had one accident. He doesn't chew things he's not supposed to unless there happens to be one of the kids' stuffed animals lying around. He really enjoys gnawing on Boober's stuffed Mickey Mouse.

But other than that, the dog's a dream. He adores the kids, and they are over the moon about having a dog. And me too. He's the first dog I've ever had, and I've always wanted one. But for various reasons (mostly laziness) I never got one.

The opportunity to adopt Mr. Smooshyface was too good to pass up though.

Scout would beg to differ, and I'm pretty sure she's going hoarse from all the hissing and spitting she's been doing lately, but I'm sure she'll come around eventually.

Until then, I have a loyal study buddy. He loves to keep my lap warm while I try not to pass out reading sociology.

I think he's probably a keeper.

AWwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!! Lookit his soft little face and velvety little ears!!! I'd totally change my stance on "no small dogs" for him.

Congrats! It's like a new baby without all the pregnancy!

Keely, you're not joking about it being like a new baby. A new baby that you're potty training like a toddler though. And who occasionally humps the kids.

I'm so jealous! I want a dog SOO bad. When the youngest kid is ten, I'm getting one whether hubby likes it or not.

much nicer and cuter than the 120lb beast that we have. Welcome, Oscar!

Hi Oscar! You are a real cutie. When we finally get a dog, I want one as cute and good as you :-)
