New Blogging Adventures

Hello, everyone! Everyone who may still be reading, that is....

I'm sorry I've been absent for so long. It was getting to a point where I found I had less and less to blog about when it came to little Oscar, and I didn't want to post things just for the sake of posting things. So blogging kind of fell by the wayside.

Oscar is still happy and well, and while he is calmer, he still has his moments where he counter surfs and his habit of stealing gloves, tissues and such and running off to chew them has not slowed down one bit. He's still charming and cute as ever though!

While I haven't really updated Oscar the Pooch, I have started a new blog with wider subject matter, like my cooking and gardening adventures - and of course, Oscar still makes an appearance here and there. The new blog is called The Captivating Life, so if you want to stop by and visit, that would be lovely. Any Oscar adventures would be found there, rather than on Oscar the Pooch.

I hope to see you at my new blog, and thanks so much for reading!
