More on Oso
Here is another picture of Oso for you.
Thanks for the advice! We are using a kennel, and he sleeps there at night and stays there when it's cold out and we're gone. He doesn't necessarily like it though... I’m assuming that comes with time. It's key for me to feel okay about not being with him 24/7. And i know i should feel okay about that.
I think Oso's mother is some sort of Cattle Dog (she has short black hair with prick ears) and his father is probably a Chow. It appears the other dogs in the litter were fathered by a Rottweiler. But the vet told me that it’s possible for there to be multiple fathers in one litter, which appears to be the case here. The other 3 puppies look like Rottweilers, short brown and tan hair. Oso is obviously the odd one out. And there is a Chow that roams the neighborhood that I think is the father.
If you’re not a dog lover, don’t worry. I plan to write much on non-dog related topics. Things like cats and birds and the strange stick/rock like bug that I found on my shoe yesterday that made me jump and drop it on the ground.
Kidding… unless I feel inspired (Annie Dillard style) I will probably stick to humans as my topic of conversation on this blog. ☺
