Oscar is such a sweetie. Fetching tennis balls in the snow is even more fun! You can pounce on them and they disappear into the snow. He's in good spirits despite his continued itchiness. We've been trying all kinds of things to try to figure out his allergies and make him more comfortable. Nothing has been a great long term solution so far, so we just went to a holistic vet to get a second opinion and more ideas. We are waiting for results of some allergy testing and treating his new staph infection with antibiotics. Wearing a t-shirt seems to help stop the itching so Oscar has been sporting Packer shirts and old baseball uniforms. He's handsome no matter what.

Oscar arrived on Dec 19th and has been settling into his new foster home. He's a playful and we'll-mannered 1.5 year old. He loves playing fetch, running in the backyard and exploring. He had a fun trip through the woods, especially after about 15 minutes when he suddenly realized he was surrounded by sticks. So many sticks! He gets along with the resident Golden, cats and kids. He had a skin infection when he arrived that's been treated with antibiotics and now we are trying to get his allergies/itchiness under control. He is gaining confidence every day and is a sweet, sweet boy.
