Oshie's World

Life Through A Golden Eye



Hat Model

Nancy thought it would be a good idea to take some pictures of Oshie in the different hats that he has. They could have been executed a bit better on my part but hey, dogs are like small children and they don’t like to cooperate for very long. With the help of a few treats we were able to get Oshie to sit still long enough to get through two different hats. He only has three and the third is a Santa hat so it is OK that we didn’t get them all.

The first hat was a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball cap that is too small for Oshie. Naturally being a native Angelino Nancy had to throw her Dodgers Jersey on him too. All was going well until he got bored with having his picture taken and decided to try rolling around in the grass in the perfect white Dodgers jersey ha-ha. See a few of the photos below.

The next ensemble that Oshie wore was a propeller hat with his bandanna. Right after Nancy secured the hat to Oshie’s head the wind began to blow and the propeller was spinning. Unfortunately I didn’t get any video or photos of that. Sorry. He didn’t seem to mind this hat as much as the baseball cap and this is probably because it only has a strap that goes under his chin vs. holes that his ears have to go through. Also the neighbor was walking their dog and Oshie was intently watching and waiting for them to get closer. As soon as they were in range he went charging over with the hat still on. It was pretty funny to watch. With that,the photo shoot was over. Here are some of the shots with the propeller hat.

The photos didn’t come out as great as I would have liked but they are pretty funny. Next time maybe we will do a little more preparation to ensure the best hat photo shoot possible ha-ha. Hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Oh and here is a short video. Sorry for the abrupt end. I am not much of a videographer.

Mexican Birthday Feast

So Nancy made it back stateside in time for my birthday which happened to fall on Easter Sunday this year. She had a small get together for me that included Oshie, me, my brother Ethan and his dog, his roommate Scott and of course Nancy. So yeah it was small but we aren’t really party people ha-ha.

Anyway she knows how much I love Mexican food so we had a little Mexican cookout. She made her awesome salsa verde and guacamole, rice and beans while I grilled the carne asada. Of course there was Mexican beer and Oshie and his cousin Boston (my brother’s dog) were taking full advantage of the jolly atmosphere and getting their fill of the steak.

Nancy bought me some cool birthday gifts while she was in Norway(sorry I didn’t take pictures of them). The first was Norwegian Absinthe and the second gift was a beer Stein from Iceland she bought on their way back to the states. It is sweet and I guess I have to start a stein collection now.

Anyway I just want to get a post up as I have been slacking off again. With spring finally here I will have plenty of new pictures of Oshie and spring adventures to share. Cheers!

Oh and Oshie says hi!
