Health Report

Last Saturday we took Oshie in for one of his bi-annual checkups. We generally don’t have any concerns and have been fortunate to have such a healthy pup.

He went through the gamut of vaccinations and blood drawings and we also had a small bump under his skin checked (too small to cut off and test so we are keeping an eye on it). We also asked the vet about his panting which he seems to do often. She said it could be related to a thyroid issue and they could run a test for us.

Of course we had that done and we received good news. Everything is normal on the thyroid front and Oshie just gets excited and hot easily (he does have a thick coat lol).

So we left the Vets office with an almost clean bill of health, Oshie is up a few pounds from his last visit so we need to cut back on his food. He also got some pretty purple bandages where they drew blood ha ha ha!

Happy even with purple bracelets.

Tuesday With Oshie

Just a little portrait of Oshie to share on this Tuesday that seems to be dragging on forever. There is a bow-tie somewhere beneath all of that golden hair.

Shot with my Canon 7D Mark 2 and Tamron 70-300 f/4-5.6 lens. Processed in Adobe Lightroom.

Oshie loves doughnuts!

Being the spoiled dog that he is, Oshie has developed a taste for the finer things in life like fresh (well maybe not really fresh) doughnuts. On the weekends we usually take a morning drive with a mandatory stop for coffee to fuel the rest of the day. Of course Oshie tags along on the rides because he loves being in the car with the windows down where he can catch all the scents! This means that he usually gets a treat in the form of whipped cream or the occasional plain doughnut. Don’t worry we know they aren’t good for him and he doesn’t get them everyday, but a treat every once in a while isn’t going to hurt right? And it is impossible to say no to that face!

Anyway here is a short video of Oshie, who had already eaten his treat, practically begging for the doughnut that I had saved for myself. You also get to see his newest trick at the end! He has learned speak. Probably the hardest trick to teach so far as he is not much of a barker. Enjoy!

Birthday Boy!

Yesterday Oshie turned 3 years old which, depending on the source, is anywhere from 24-29 in dog years. Despite getting older he still has that happy and rambunctious puppy attitude about him.

As usual he was completely spoiled and received a delicious steak and vegetable dinner (fear not the steak was not seasoned it any way).

Only the best for Oshie

And after dinner Oshie received a special cupcake because how can you have a birthday without a cake? Nancy made the cupcakes which had peanut butter and carrots in them along with peanut butter for frosting. I will be sure to post the recipe later.

Oshie absolutely devoured both the steak and the cupcake. See for yourselves in the videos below.

Hopefully he doesn’t think that now he will be eating like this every night.

Happy Birthday Oshie!
