Frosted dog

The cooler weather has given Oscar a new lease of life.

He’s always ready to play a game of ball…

Play with me copy

Look at those ears flapping in the autumn sunshine —

“We have lift off!” they seem to be saying.

Frosty dog copy

Another fun game is hiding in the leaves

And hoping I won’t be able to find him.

(We’ll be out in the autumn sun, so please excuse me if I don’t get around to visiting you all this weekend.)

  6. That is one happy dog. Great shots. I especially like the one where Oscar is camouflaged among the leaves. Oh, that reminds me, I need to go outside and rake up the fallen leaves – Dang it!!!

  12. Oscar knows how the game is played and you do no need to apologize for playing outside when it is so tempting. Enjoy yourselves and have fun:-)

  13. Oscar always reminds me of our two Goldens, both deceased. The sweetest dogs ever.

    October 19, 2013 at 19:06

    Oscar needs to come here where the leaves are knee deep – he’d be in heaven. Lovely to see him looking so fit, well and enjoying life.

  21. And a golden retriever has such an advantage hiding in autumn leaves…!

    October 19, 2013 at 21:29

  22. Gorgeous shots of Oscar! He’s a very happy dog.

    October 19, 2013 at 22:24

  23. Aah …. the simple pleasures of life! Our four-legged friends have a way of reminding us of these, don’t they? …. and they bring such joy to our lives. (I’m with Oscar – the cooler weather brings me out of “hibernation” and encourages activity!) Happy weekend Lady Fi.

    October 19, 2013 at 22:30

  24. Your dog seems extremely happy.

    Oscar must be slowing down a little- we didn’t see as many gleeful pictures of him jumping into water this year but here he is in all his glory! Good to see! Cheers, Danette

  32. Sweet! Sophie feels the same way as Oscar!

    October 20, 2013 at 03:19

  33. So cute how he hides in the leaves! We’ll be outdoors this weekend too. I felt cheated last weekend because it rained.

    October 20, 2013 at 04:46

  34. That dog has heart and soul. He is my hero. He is up there with Hilary’s Bennie in my book. I wish you would make an Oscar calendar so I could buy multiple copies and spread the joy that is this dog–everywhere!

    October 20, 2013 at 05:32

  35. What a sweetheart. It’s pretty amazing how retrievers can hold the whole ball in their mouths like that. Love it.

    Oscar is adorable – I can imagine he’s not as lively in the summer with that thick fur coat.

    October 20, 2013 at 19:20

  46. We haven’t had frost yet, so I am envious!!! I love that image of Oscar taking off!!!

    October 20, 2013 at 20:58

    October 21, 2013 at 15:05

  58. Oscar is looking a bit more frosted himself, he is getting older. Chance likes the cooler weather brings out the pup in an older dog. I enjoyed all your photos of Oscar..what a boy:)

    October 25, 2013 at 15:48
