Although he has yet to find his forever family, Oscar continues to win the hearts of all who meet him. Recently, he has been enjoying the life of a gracious ambassador, accepting ear scritches and cookies from young and old alike as we stroll through the local farmers’ market. With each sloppy kiss and nudge with his big wet nose, he reminds those around him that a dog’s quality of life is measured by the strength of heart, not simply by working parts.
Never one to complain, Oscar has been concerned that his regular hour-long strolls through the local dog park have been curtailed due to an overabundance of poison ivy and ticks. While the local spin around the neighborhood is alright for “necessary” tasks, it lacks the sense of bucolic ambiance he enjoyed along the wooded paths.
Since he was last featured on the Daily Corgi, Oscar has received an MRI (arranged by Corgi Connection and paid for by CorgiAid) which showed no evidence of spinal damage. While a clear MRI is really good news, it also pretty much seals the deal on the earlier diagnosis of Degenerative Myelopathy. He continues to swiffer about the house to chase his squeaky chicken or bark at the mailman. He is very comfortable puttering about in his cart, which is on loan from Corgi Aid.
He would like to give a shout out to his peeps at Wheelcorgis!
