This weekend I decided to take Oscar on an outing. There was a big event at the local fairgrounds, with pony rides, bounce houses, and lots of adoptable pets (dogs, cats, & horses!). I thought this would be a great place to take Oscar to because there would be plenty of time for him to rest in between us walking around.
We first went by to say hello to our friends at the Last Hope Rescue & Wakulla Shelter booths. Oscar had a great time saying hello to everyone, and he had lots of people “ooo’ing” & “aah’ing” over him!
Then it was off to the bounce houses! Kids were running around, screaming & having fun. Lots of dogs were going by, some interested in Oscar and some not. Oscar took it all in stride! He wagged his tail at every one, and had no fear. There were a few dogs that seemed over stimulated, and tried to take it out on Oscar. He just looked at them like “Dude, what’s your problem? You’re gonna mess up my sweater.” He didn’t bark, he didn’t growl, nothing. He was the perfect little pocket pittie!
Oscar got lots of pets, and everyone thought he was just as cute as can be. He was great while we waited in line for Jayden to get his face painted, just sat at my feet patiently waiting & watching everyone. He also sat patiently watching as Jayden went on a pony ride.
After this, we decided to call it a day. Apparently it was good timing, because Oscar laid down & refused to walk any further! I had to pick him up & carry him to the car. As I held him, he licked me and wagged his tail like crazy. I swear he was saying “Thank you mama! I had so much fun!”
He curled up on the couch as soon as we got home, and pretty much slept for the rest of the day!
This was just the first of many adventures we will have, and I am so proud of what a good boy he was. He is going to help show the world that his breed is not so bad after all!
