Birthday Bento for a Dog

oscar banquet

Today is Oscar’s 4th birthday. I still remember clear as a bell the first night we brought him home. By pure coincidence that day was also J’s birthday. From the pictures on the rescue’s website Oscar looked tiny so we brought a cardboard box to bring the new puppy home in. He was a lot bigger than we had anticipated. He was 3 1/2 months old and weighed 28 1/2 pounds (he now weighs 57). He was afraid to come upstairs, and was afraid of the kitchen (especially the fridge and a toy wolf mask we had hanging from a shelf). Oscar was an immediate snuggler and we fell in love with him instantly. In the early days he used to sleep in a crate in the living room. But one night when J was up late working, Oscar dragged the blanket out of his crate into the office and slept beside J all night while he worked. That was the last of the crate, and how he wormed his way into our bedroom.
