What can I say?

Oscar loves water – even if there are still some ice floes in it!

When you feel the impulse to soar, why content yourself with walking?

  3. What a great capture! Oscar is an amazing dog!

  4. Fiona, what a brilliant shot! I have to say that Oscar always cracks me up – he’s just wonderful. My dog is supposed to have been bred to fetch ducks from the water, but she didn’t get that memo. She LOATHES water and gets distressed even if her delicate paws step in a puddle. Hopeless!

  5. Oscar sure knows how to appreciate life and we are lucky you share his knowledge with us. Thank you, Ladyfi:-)

    You sure Oscar isn’t Scottish? I’ve never seen people more able to swim and frolic in waters so cold that most people wouldn’t even dip their toes into.

    • He might well be Scottish as his forefather came from the UK.

  7. Dogs and water go together like strawberries and cream.

  26. What an awesome picture!

    April 24, 2011 at 21:11

  27. I love this pic. Oscar is setting a great example for all of us. For me though, the water looks so cold that I could probably jump in and get out so fast that I wouldn’t even get wet.

    April 24, 2011 at 22:56

    April 25, 2011 at 15:32

  34. That’s a lovely, active shot, Oscar at full stretch, gleaming golden in the sunshine. And an ice floe to remind us that it’s not high summer yet!

    April 25, 2011 at 15:43

  35. Amy

    Wonderful shot Fi!!! I wish my dogs would jump in the water like that…they just kinda stumble out into it…BORING!!!!

    April 25, 2011 at 15:51

  36. Yeah yeah — I agree it’s a great action shot and Oscar is a role model for us all.

    But I am amazed to see your beautiful daughter in shorts! Girl, there’s an ice floe in that water. (I know…cold is relative…and it does look beautiful and bright blue out there.. and she is young….I get it. But it still looks to me like she’d freeze to death .

    April 29, 2011 at 06:37

    • No in the water next to it!

      April 29, 2011 at 08:50
