Today is Oscar's first birthday! Our little puppy is growing up! I know many people consider dogs to be adults when they're about a year old, but Oscar is still very much a puppy, temperament-wise. I wonder if I'll ever consider him to be an adult dog. Maybe if he ever calms down!
It's been a busy weekend so I didn't bake him a cake, but I bought him a birthday treat at the pet store - a Pup Pie by the Lazy Dog Cookie Co. It's pretty much like a dog biscuit, but softer and shaped like a pie. Very cute! Oscar seems to enjoy it. We gave him a piece last night, even though it wasn't his birthday until today. There are 10 pieces, so he'll have snacks to enjoy for a while.
The weather was beautiful on Saturday, so Oscar got to hang out with us in the backyard. He had fun sniffing things and running around, and then lay down in the grass to relax, which I rarely see him do!
It's a long weekend, so we've had time to relax with Oscar. We also had some friends over yesterday, and a couple of them brought their Lab over to play with Oscar. Oscar is not used to playing with big dogs, so he was a bit skittish, especially when the Lab tried to play a game of chase, but he had fun and was pretty tuckered out. We went for a good walk today, and now Oscar's napping. All in all, it's been a pretty good birthday weekend for our little pup!
