Happy Adoptiversary, Oscar!

Today is Oscar’s Gotcha Day! 

Two years ago, we picked up a little 8 week old furry pile of cute from Nashville’s Metro Animal Care & Control – otherwise known as doggie jail.  His crime – running at large.  At only 8 weeks old, we can only assume he was born on the mean streets of Nashville. 

He was picked up on a Tuesday, we sprung him that Saturday, and he slept most the rest of that weekend.  Since he was so young, we like to think that by the time he woke up, he didn’t remember anything from his past life – that the first memory he has is at Home, loved…with his People.

Oscar, these last two years have been more amazing than we ever imagined, when we first walked into MACC two years go.  You’ve taught Dad and me so much – yes, about the ins and outs of owning a dog (training, etc), but also about loyalty, patience, resilience and unconditional love. 

We’ve had more fun with you than we ever thought possible.  We love watching you learn new things, and try to figure out what it is we’re asking you to do.  And being able to see your transition from a silly little fluff ball to the happy, confident grown up goofy guy you are today – dude, it’s a total blast.  And man, oh man, do we laugh!

You’re the reason we started fostering dogs in the first place.  Do you realize that every life we’ve saved by bringing an unwanted dog into our home, is because of you?  We love you so, so much, that we wanted to help as many dogs as we could find People of their very own, so they could love someone as much as you love us.  You’re a doggie hero! 

Oscar, thank you so much for being who you are.  To us, you’re the most perfect pup in the entire world, and we can’t imagine our lives without you.  We love you more every day.

Are you looking for your very own perfect pup to share your Furever with?  Adoptable Cooper and Molly Tamale are still searching for their People!  If you think that’s you, fill out an application with Agape Animal Rescue.

  5. Happiest of Gotcha Days to you Oscar!!!! I love the photo of you in the aftermath of your destruction. What was it that caught your eye? Pillow? Sofa cushion? Colossal plush toy? You and your family are very lucky you found each other. Much love – XXOO – Mazzie


    • You know, Mazzie, momma was so silly to leave me unattended while she had the nerve to fold the laundry – I was only an 8 month old pup, and that pillow was riiiiiiiiiiiiiight there…I mean, what was I supposed to do?? Luckily momma wasn’t too mad, she thought it was pretty funny stuff! But I sure learned my lesson, chewings are for toys only! XO Oscar
