|Our backyard on Friday...|
|Our backyard on Saturday. Treacherous!|
Oscar is starting to explore a lot more these days, and I think it's because the smells are a lot stronger now that the snow is starting to melt.
|And more sniffing.|
We took Oscar on a walk yesterday. It was kind of nice that it was still cold enough for the snow and ice to remain frozen, because it was a lot less messy than it was when we walked him last week. The EasyWalk harness is making life much better for us. It was possibly the best walk we've ever been on with Oscar! He was very relaxed for once and kept the pulling to a minimum, though we still practiced the Leave It command a lot, as we usually do on our walks. I never noticed, before getting a dog, how much garbage there is just sitting on the edge of the road. In fairness, Oscar will eat just about anything, so it's not like our streets are covered in trash - there are just a lot of little tidbits that usually end up in his mouth if we're not watching him.

when usually his nose is stuck to the ground. Nice!
