Oscar and I met when he was about nine months old. He came to me through a Rescue Agency. His previous owners had recently given birth to twin baby girls, and a precocious pup was too much to take. How could this little guy be a bother to anyone, I ask you?
On Oscar's first night, he crawled up on my chest, placed his nose in the crook of my neck, and immediately fell asleep. It was instant love for both of us. He has been with me ever since!
Oscar loves horses. For some reason, he sees himself as their protector. He wags his tiny tail, chasing them and barking playfully, which is very odd, because he rarely barks at home. When he sees his horse friends, you would swear that a smile comes across his snout!
As most doxies, Oscar has a slight Napolean complex when it comes to bigger dogs. He has to prove he is "king of the castle". But, it never takes long before he views them as just "another horse" and quickly becomes their greatest allie.
I have been truly blessed to have this little beast come into my life. He seemed to instantly know that I would always give him a home, and therefore, he, in turn, would always be by my side as a constant, loving companion.
