Dearest Oscar, you are gorgeous! What a stunning Poodle-mix doggie you are! It is easy to see you as the professional model you are, in all those great photos. And what a delightful personality you have! You are very affectionate with everyone you meet, especially children. You love snuggling and spooning with your dear parents in bed! Your antics and energy make them smile, and you and they love each other very much, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Oscar, on being chosen today's Dog of the Day! We hope you and your dear parents and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
