Oscar Update and Pic

Hello,

As some of you may recall, I was having some difficulty with Oscar socializing in puppy kindergarten, due mainly to a class full of labs. Well, I'm happy to report, Oscar successfully completed PK, and slowly got better with his interactions with the other dogs in the class. It helped that many of the labs dropped out after a few classes. Even though Oscar never got fully engaged with the labs rough play, we got our last laugh during the final class when we showed off our great down-stay (> 1 minute all the way across the room), and displayed the many tricks Oscar has learned along the way.

Anyway, here's a picture taken the day after class ended with Oscar wearing his new bandana that he received from the school. Amazingly, he wore it the whole day without shredding it. I took this picture in my living room with my studio lighting setup that was out for my children's portraits. I lured him into a down-stay , and got this great shot. Enjoy.

Wow, what a great pic. Looks like a professional studio did it! He looks so proud to be wearing his bandana.

Oops, just read that you have professional studio equipment. How great is that? I'm stuck with crummy iPhone pics!

Congrats to both of you and Yay for sticking with it. The beginner classes often have owners that are not on the ball, they are the ones that drop out, if you stick with it you will always forge a greater bond with your pal, have a well mannered pet and still have the last laugh. Oh, and everyone will wish they had your dog.
