And the Oscar goes to…

Please indulge me as I celebrate Oscar’s tenth birthday with some … well … Oscars (and very bad puns).

Oscar for best smile…

(Muzzle tof!)

Oscar for best yoga position …

(It’s ruff, but he can do it.)

And, of course, Oscar for best swimmer.

Paws for thought…

Perhaps that should be an Olympic Gold for swimming instead?

This is the end of my birthday tail —

You kennel stop growling at my bad puns now.

Your-key to getting away from all this is to visit: Camera Critters.

      Please excuse Elvira’s spelling. From the human side of this two sum. I to wish Oscar all the best. It is obvious he is a crucial part of your life let alone a perfect subject in your photos, His presence adds another of element of life an purpose within the frame -he often is the key to the feelings which the images evoke. The lens loves Oscar.
