Miniature schnauzers were originally ratting dogs, but it turns out that Oscar's got a different skill - he also hunts and destroys spiders. He was sniffing madly in the corner this evening and I stopped him, thinking that he was chewing on the computer cords that were there. I then saw a spider run up the wall, and lo and behold, Oscar ate it! Yuck. I'm a total arachnophobe, so it's nice that he's hunting spiders for me, but it's gross that he tries to give me kisses afterwards. If Oscar keeps this up, he'll save my husband some energy, since I usually send him to do my spider hunting because I'm too much of a wimp to do it myself. Ha!
I wanted to take a minute to say thanks to Henry, Buster, Daisy and their mom over at The Teacher's Pets for featuring our charming little Oscar on their blog! Stop over and visit them, if you haven't already!
