Oscar has taught me this:
Live life in the anticipation that
Is just around the corner.
(Even if it’s just a dip in the local lake…)

And if you expect something wonderful, somehow, the something wonderful shows up!

Our dogs can be great teachers, if we’re willing to take notice! It always amazes me how frequently I find those wonderful things just around the corner! Have a beautiful weekend — both of you!!

They say that our pets are the best mentors in life. What they give, they give freely – no hidden motives. Such a beautiful dog and very, very wise. What a lesson!

By the way, Fiona, I just love the orange light on Oscar’s neck against the blue background of the water.
August 25, 2012 at 18:43
I don’t think I’d be the person I am without my dog….Oscar is so handsome….
August 25, 2012 at 19:01
Oscar is beautiful! Dogs always have such a positive outlook.
August 25, 2012 at 19:19
I always think about how I’d love to be a dog during nap times.

Oscar is a handsome dog. I am sure he loves to swim. Great shot!

He’s just about to catch a fish, you wait and see!
Oscar is very photogenic and philosophical to boot. And his Mom is a wonderful photographer!
August 26, 2012 at 00:55
Oscar’s happiness could only be catching. Thank you for another wonderful post.
August 26, 2012 at 01:25
He’s so into life where we all need to be
August 26, 2012 at 02:06
That’s a great teaching. I agree with it.
August 26, 2012 at 02:31
I’m not sure that I would put a dip in the local lake as something wonderful but, hey, each to their own!
August 26, 2012 at 02:56
Oscar certainly has a great deal of enthusiasm about life– even more than other dogs. A great role model! Cheers! Danette

Hard not to listen to that, Lady Fi. He has the most beautiful face.

August 26, 2012 at 14:02
Sheba and Oscar have the same philosophy!
August 26, 2012 at 15:04
What a lovely dog! He looks like he is ready to jump in…and maybe catch some fish!
We had a dog who loved to fish.
August 26, 2012 at 19:43
I suppose that a lot of dogs have more joy in their lives than do a lot of people. That’s sure one wonderful photo.
August 26, 2012 at 21:07
It’s all about reveling in whatever life brings and enjoying the simple things (except your pictures always take it way above the “simple” category into exquisite!)

It’s all about reveling in whatever life brings and enjoying the simple things (except that your pictures always like life out of the “simple’ category and into the exquisite!).
August 27, 2012 at 02:01
Oh I do just love Oscar smiling photos!
August 27, 2012 at 02:24
Oscar appears to be smiling. I love it when dogs do that.
August 27, 2012 at 03:42
I agree Oscar is smiling..just thinking about leaping into the water for a swim:)

Splendid picture – I love the range of gold in his coat.
The relatives have left my house and order (as much as ever) slowly comes back!
