|Lance, now Oscar
Foster Home: Peggy
Update: Lance was adopted in March, 2005 and is now known as Oscar. Here he is in early 2010 with his new "sibling."
First Report on Oscar - post-adoption:
19" tall (floor to shoulder)
One baby tooth remaining
BORDER COLLIE TRAITS:
Ball drive? Yes!
Barks at anything out of place
SELF-APPOINTED HOUSEHOLD JOB:
Enthusiastically fetches newspaper every morning
Carrots, cucumbers, zucchinis
Stuffed monkey puppet, any empty plastic bottle or jug
that makes loud noises on hardwood floors
Herding bugs in the garden (honestly)
Barks first, friends later (but quickly)
FIRST CONQUERED FOE:
The whirling lawn sprinkler (one of the spoils of
victory: he gets to sit in the spray and cool off)
FOES STILL AT LARGE:
Vacuum cleaner, brooms, lawnmower, swifter
TERMS OF ENDEARMENT
Still wants to be a lap dog (despite being 25 lbs.)
Lamb leaps and mountain lion pounces
Tears up newspapers when we're out
Removes insoles from any and every shoe
Riding in the car with his head out the window
PHRASES HE PRETENDS NOT TO UNDERSTAND:
"This is MY dinner."
"That's not for doggies."
"What's in your mouth?"
Lance, along with his mother Charlotte and his seven siblings, made quite an entrance to GLBCR - they were born in the car on the way to their foster home!
