Oshie's World

Life Through A Golden Eye

The Face That Gets All The Girls

One of the great joys of owning a dog is seeing their personality as it develops. Their faces can be so expressive, especially their eyes. Oshie’s many different faces are a constant source of entertainment in our house. He makes strange faces when he hears noises from another room or when his ears are getting rubbed. He even makes faces when you say certain words or phrases to him like “do you want” ha-ha. I do my best to try and capture these faces so we can look back on them later an laugh.

Here is one of the faces he does often and it always makes us laugh. I think it is his inquisitive used when he is trying to figure something out like “why is dad sticking his camera in my face again”. Don’t you think this is a face that would drive all the girls crazy?

Oshie’s Day With The Marines!

Here is the follow up video to the last blog post about Oshie’s trip to work with Nancy. Oshie loves hanging out with the Marines and they love having him. His visit might not be completely within the rules (ha-ha) but it is definitely good for morale. I know I would have loved to have a dog hang out at my shop back when I was in.

I remember living in the barracks you couldn’t keep pets of any kind and you could go long periods of time without interacting with a  4 legged friend. For animal lovers and Marines that grew up with pets that can really suck. You also don’t realize how long it has been since you last played with a dog until you finally get to again.

It is pretty cool that Nancy brings Oshie to work every so often. I know he loves it and I know the Marines appreciate it too, especially when Oshie helps them take out the trash ha-ha.

Enjoy!

So Excited!

Every so often Oshie goes to work with Nancy and hangs out with the Marines. He loves going and they love having him. About two weeks ago she decided she would take him in on a Friday. I had gotten all of his things ready and when he saw them on the counter he knew he was going on a trip. Sometimes he is too smart. He knows when the harness/leash are out that he is probably going to be doing something fun. Below is the video of him in all his excited glory.

Flight Of The Oshie

Friday is finally here and if you are like me you couldn’t be more happy. It has been a long slow week and I am looking forward to the weekend. Thanks to the holiday on Monday (Presidents Day) it is a long one. I also get Tuesday off due to some electrical work being done to the building I work in. This video of Oshie below (with Wagner’s Flight Of The Valkyries as the soundtrack) shows how much he enjoys going for rides. The joy you see on his face is exactly the same feeling I have about this much needed long weekend.

Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!

 

Oshie on MSN – Dog Celebrity

The video I took of Oshie greeting Nancy when she returned from Norway is on MSN.com (I guess it has been there for a little while but we forgot to mention it)

The video on our YouTube channel has 700,000 views. I think it is safe to say that Oshie has gone semi-viral. He better not let this go to his head and start acting like some pompous celebrity. Besides, Nancy and I already treat him like royalty. How much more can he really expect?
