Camera Critters

Camera Critters
This is the story of Oskar. Say hello, Oskar.
Well Oskar seems to be sleeping lying-in-wait, but he says hello.
Photobucket
I've gotten some questions on why his name is spelled the way it is instead of Oscar. The answer is that my husband is 100% German & schnauzers are German dogs. My mother in law says Oskar is the authentic German spelling of the name.
When we met Oskar he was 2 days old.
Photobucket
8 weeks later we brought him home. To little Oskar the world was a very big place.
Photobucket
Oskar worked hard protecting Jack, his youngest boy.
Photobucket
God makes baby schnauzers very cute, so that their people don't kill give up on them, because baby schnauzers, or at least baby Oskars, are very naughty. See how cute?
Photobucket
Chloe! Get that look off of your face, this is a story about Oskar. Maybe you can be next week.
Photobucket
As you can see, Oskar grew to be a good camper,
Photobucket
sun bather,
Photobucket
and occasional hat model!
Photobucket
Oskars do not care for thunderstorms. Hey, even Superman had his kryptonite!
Photobucket
Oskar adapts easily to many situations. Notice how he transitions easily from everday napping...
Photobucket
to holiday napping, without even breaking a sweat?
Photobucket
Since we live in Michigan it can be very snowy.
Photobucket
Oskar works very hard to help clear the driveway, by bringing as much snow possible into the house.
Photobucket
As you can see, miniature schnauzers are very helpful pets. Say goodbye, Oskar.

Oh too cute! How precious! Pets are such good companions!

I think Chloe is upset. Then again,when is a cat not upset?!?! And I say that with the greatest love, because I love cats. But they sure are tempermental when they are not getting their way or all of the attention.

June said...

Wonderful storyboard...and quite a smile when Chloe popped in!

Reader Wil said...

Oskar is a lovely dog and boy, how he has grown! Your story is told with so much humour that I enjoyed it very much!

Oskar is precious. Everything you described about him was like you were describing Libby.
She is terrified of thunderstorms.

It's funny how they love cushy places to sleep. Libby loves pillows and would never lay on a bare floor. Cracks me up.
That last picture of Oskar on that rug. I have one that is almost identical to that.
Did you see my Libby post on my blog look at the labels marked Libby and I have the story how we got her.
Also, Allison at the blog Displaced Texan has Oskars sister. All black schnauzer named Addie. Go check out Addie.
Fun, Fun, thanks for posting all the Oskar pictures. His expressions are so cute. They have so much expression don't they. OK I'll stop I could go on and on.

It is a very special feeling when you can connect at such an early age with a pet. Those that do are very lucky from both the human and pet perspective. Thanks for sharing your story and pictures of Oskar. He is a cutie!

I don't think there is any explanation for why your dog is so adorable. Seriously.

Elena said...

I'm very sorry that you're green right now. But I have to say that I'd be the same shade if I hadn't been the winner. :) What a give away, eh?! I'm still in shock I think. And your adorable little Oskar could be great friends with my Johnny. He's a black shnauzer too. Are they not the cutest puppies ever?! Thanks for your comments on my blog.

Loved this post!
He is a cutie and I love that his name is spelled with a K - makes him extra special!

Toni said...

Oskar is a gorgeous guy. I think God makes all puppies cute for that reason. I still have days that I tell my 4 year old Springer that she is lucky she is a pretty girl.

Lynette said...

OK - he is toooo cute!!

Amy said...

Your doggie is an absolute angel. God made both children and puppies adorable for the very same reason. : )

Thanks for making me smile.
