Oscar on the beach again!

This photo of Oscar was taken in 2007 at Garrettstown Beach where Oscar loved to chase tennis balls. We always thought he was middle aged back then and nowadays he doesn’t do much running around at all. It’s hard to believe that was seven years ago!

Loved that apple tart afterwards. Yum! This is our shih tzu, Oscar, who we took along for the drive. After the main course was over half the crowd piled out onto the adjoining terrace and so I got Oscar from the car.

The Happy Shih Tzu

The Happy Shih Tzu Our Shih Tzu, Oscar, received a long overdue grooming today. Here he is on the 10th of December 2007. Can you imagine how much more hair grew since then? Yes, this photo is very similar to this beach photo. They were taken moments apart. I’m running low on prepared images, it’s after 9pm and I have lots of other things to do tonight before I go to bed. *yawn*
