This is a pic of OSCAR during his first week with us.  He was 7 1/2 months old... He's come a LONG way from the terror he started out as!  He turns 1 1/2 this week and I couldn't be more proud of the brilliant, affectionate, adorable young man he's turned out to be.  He's completely housebroken, obeys (most) commands, walks great on a leash, and has finally accepted that NUGGET is the Alpha.  I had to learn the hard way that this dog thrives on structure and routine.  NUGGET is probably the most easy going dog ever.  He could eat now, or he could eat later.  He could go potty now, or hold it for a bit - but never would he go in the house!  I can leave him uncrated and trust that everything will be exactly as I left it when I return home (with the exception of the couch pillows or smoothed-out quilt on my bed... he likes to rearrange things, but he would never destroy anything anymore).  OSCAR, on the other hand, has to eat, pee, poo, nap, snack, etc. at precisely the same times every single day or all hell breaks loose and he suddenly loses every bit of domestication in his bloodline.  So perhaps it's more accurate to say, OSCAR  has done a great job of training me over the past 10 months...


  1. Can you make Big Carl completely housebroken please?


  2. Hey Oscar, can you pass over the tips on how to train your hoo-man? We haven't figured that one out yet!
