  3. - Billy - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:13 am:

    Cute little dog!


  4. - Give Me A Break - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:13 am:

    Well at least Rich and Oscar have the same hair style.


  5. - Knome Sane - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:13 am:

    Can I change my blog name to “Rich’s Dog Oscar”?


  6. - Sgt Schultz - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:14 am:

    Ha! Perfect name. He just needs his picture taken in a little garbage can!


  7. - wordslinger - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:16 am:

    Rich, your baby picture is adorable.

    How about a shot of your new puppy?


  8. - Pelon - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:17 am:

    Very nice. There is nothing like a good dog to help you forget the troubles of the state. :)


  9. - justbabs - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:17 am:

    Awww. They grow up so fast. But the training seems to last forever.


  10. - sal-says - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:19 am:

    A cutie. A ‘puppy’ will keep you busy ! Good luck & enjoy !


  11. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:22 am:

    What breed is Oscar?

    Where is Oscar registered to vote?

    Cute dog!


  12. - Show me the money - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:25 am:

    He’s adorable. soft coated wheaten terriers are wonderful doggies!


  13. - siriusly - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:25 am:

    Welcome to your new home, also known as the mansion that impeachment built.


  14. - Bitterman - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:32 am:

    He’s a dandy.


  15. - Demoralized - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:33 am:

    Rich:

    You really need to trim your beard.

    In all seriousness, my kids would go nuts for that dog. Very nice. Welcome Oscar.


  16. - Pot calling kettle - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:34 am:

    Oscar, if you decide to start a blog on Illinois politics, you will need to promise us that your human will step down from his influential post.

    Note to legislative printing office: Mr. Miller is only allowed to take one paper schedule for each chamber per day. Those extras he wants to take “for a friend” will not be used for their originally intended purpose. (Although what Mr. Miller’s friend will use them for may be more appropriate.)


  17. - Grandson of Man - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:36 am:

    Very cute dog! I have a dog that is at least 12 years old and still healthy and active. I wish Rich many happy years with his new dog.


  18. - Wensicia - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:37 am:

    So cute! You’re trusting him on that nice rug?


  19. - Kane Gal - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:39 am:

    OMG! He’s so adorable. Rich, you should consider a caption contest…I would love to know what “could” be going on inside that cute little brain of his…


  20. - NIref - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:41 am:

    Still a better haircut than Rich has.


  21. - 3rd Generation Chicago Native - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:43 am:

    Cute puppy, but you may want to roll up that rug he is on for a while, looks like an expensive rug.


  22. - Arthur Andersen - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:44 am:

    The family resemblance is noteworthy.

    Oscar, warm welcome from AA and sidekick Louis the Wonder Dog.


  23. - Just a Citizen - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:48 am:

    Cute puppy, but have to agree with other commenters. That rug needs to be put away until Oscar becomes house broken.


  24. - phocion - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:48 am:

    Who’s going to watch him when you’re on vacation?


  25. - Dirty Red - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:48 am:

    :)

    When can we expect the photo of Oscar taking his first Jameson shot?


  26. - Wallendar - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:50 am:

    Adorable. We are puppy raising experts so if you need any advice - just ask. One tip - to really bond with him - play the good old fetching game. Get a nice soft toy and let her rip! All dogs love it but puppies especially.


  27. - Ozzie - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:53 am:

    As a Sox fan Rich you must have named him after Oscar Gamble.


  28. - Jim - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:53 am:

    who cares about the rugs? he’s a fine-looking beast.


  29. - just an ordinary lawyer - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 10:58 am:

    The love and unfailing devotion of a dog just can’t be beat. All the best to both of you


  30. - downstate - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:00 am:

    Great name for a pup ! Congrats RM ! Remember rule #1 TAKE THEM OUT right after they wake, play ,eat, drink ….


  31. - circularfiringsquad - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:02 am:

    Do you need the # for invisible fence or are you looking for more exercise via the chase?


  32. - champaigndweller - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:04 am:

    I’m a cat person but that is one cute puppy.


  33. - Dogs Rule! - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:05 am:

    I lost my Wheaton when he was 13 years, broke my heart. I still remember when he was that small. They are the BEST of dogs! Better get a lot of chewies, you’ll need them! Congrats on your new love! xoxox to Oscar


  34. - corvax - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:07 am:

    congratulations on the new best friend!


  35. - Skirmisher - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:10 am:

    Looks like a terrier, and one with attitude at that! Having 4 scottish terriers around the house, all I can tell you is that you will have your hands full for awhile. My wife would just go nuts over that pup.


  36. - Cheswick - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:21 am:

    Such cuteness makes me happy.


  37. - Bluefish - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:23 am:

    More things for legislators to step in when they’re around Rich.


  38. - Esquire - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:25 am:

    Oscar is a much better name than Squeezy! Oscar’s beard is not nearly as gray as Rich’s!


  39. - Irish - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:34 am:

    Very cute!

    Now you have a good use for the Tribune!!

    What will new dog owners do when all news is electronic??????

    Grampa “And we used to put the paper down to train our dogs.” Little Kid, “Grampa, What’s a paper?”


  40. - JoeVerdeal - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:34 am:

    Shelter dog? I hope so….although that one looks like one that never needed to be rescued.

    I have one shelter dog and two that I found starving after being dumped near my farm. They are excellent buddies. I wish your new dog many years of happiness.


  41. - OneMan - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:36 am:

    Now there will more recycling of the press releases….


  42. - And I Approved This Message - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:39 am:

    You might want to resist the urge to say “Bite Me!” when he’s around.


  43. - Anyone Remember? - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:42 am:

    Oscar, remember Mr. Miller determines when “comments are closed” and its useless to argue.


  44. - Eddy - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:51 am:

    I have two words for you… Pooper Scooper


  45. - Cincinnatus - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 11:55 am:

    Whats that saying, “over time, dogs and their owners begin to look alike?”


  46. - Anon. - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 12:07 pm:

    Thanks in advance for not eating my pension reform bill!


  47. - Champaign - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 12:17 pm:

    Take the bone, leave the cannoli?


  48. - D.P. Gumby - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 12:21 pm:

    I predict a new forthright commentator: “Oscar says…”


  49. - Boone Logan Square - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 12:24 pm:

    Now the interns are banned from shaving? Rough workplace environment.

    Oscar is a great name for a dog.


  50. - cermak_rd - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 12:35 pm:

    Cute puppy. I bet my Spikey and he would have a hoot playing.

    Just remember Rich, Cujo was a cute puppy too.

  56. - Langhorne - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:19 pm:

    Get ready for shoes and socks to be redistributed all over the house. Crate training is the best way to go for housebreaking.

    Yankee candles has a new scent–puppy breath.


  57. - Cincinnatus - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:22 pm:

    Rich Miller’s Pongee?


  58. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:30 pm:

    ===Crate training is the best way to go for housebreaking. ===

    That’s what we’re doing. But, man, he no likey the crate.


  59. - Pink E. Kent - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:32 pm:

    and will we feeding Oscar a steady diet of barbecued orange python meat?


  60. - Modest proposal - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:38 pm:

    Bob Hope once at a White House correspondents dinner said that FDRs dog was the only one ever to be house broken on the Chicago tribune. Will Oscar be house broken on the tribune’s editorial page?


  61. - NIref - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:43 pm:

    ===Crate training is the best way to go for housebreaking. ===

    ===That’s what we’re doing. But, man, he no likey the crate. ===

    The crate has to be a happy place for the dog, not a place for punishment.


  62. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:45 pm:

    ===The crate has to be a happy place for the dog, not a place for punishment. ===

    Well aware of that. But he just doesn’t like to go inside of it.


  63. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:56 pm:

    *clears throat, takes a deep breath, jumps up and down*

    But Rich!!!…if you let me babysit for Oscar while you and Mrs. Rich go out..he won’t have to go in the crate…I promise to…one…water him!!!…and feed him!!!….


  64. - Cheryl44 - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 1:56 pm:

    It’s my understanding the liking the crate part of it takes a while. But what do I know, I have the most cats I’m allowed to have according to my lease.


  65. - soccermom - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 2:37 pm:

    Oscar, we welcome you in song!

  66. - Springfieldish - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 2:44 pm:

    That there is one damn cute dog.

    Did the crate training, but it morphed into the behind-my-knees training. Now I can’t sleep without my dog tucked behind my knees. When I hear the dog’s sigh after finally finding the most comfortable position, I know all is right with the world and we both sleep like babies. Enjoy!


  67. - Cheryl44 - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 2:44 pm:

    I thought it would be this song

    The purest love you’ll ever know.


  69. - cermak_rd - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:05 pm:

    After a while, the dog will think of the crate as a refuge, and you’ll know you’ve become insufferable when your dog would rather go to his crate rather than be with you!


  70. - Manti Te' O - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:09 pm:

    A cute puppy. Why didn’t I think of that!


  71. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:20 pm:

    ===After a while, the dog will think of the crate as a refuge===

    That’s what I’m told. He’s really quiet now. Chilling in his crate, which is on my desk near me. Man, he’s so cute. But, man, it was tough getting him in his crate after his early afternoon walk and play time.


  72. - Boone's is Back - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:25 pm:

    Oscar- watch out for cigarette buds and beer caps. PS- you’ll have a blast chasing geese in his back yard.


  73. - unspun - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:34 pm:

    He appears to be leaning to the left…clearly you haven’t trained him yet.


  74. - Just The Way It Is One - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:34 pm:

    Yikes! Best ‘o luck with him–just do keep those old Newspapers and Magazines handy, ‘cuz in that look he’s giving in the picture, I keep hearing the line of an old, I think it’s a Doobie Brothers’ song, “He’ll keep you RUNnin’, YEAH he’ll keep you runnIN’…!!!”


  75. - Ken_in_Aurora - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:37 pm:

    What a cutie! We only adopt adults (Greyhounds) but I miss having an occasional puppy.

    You know why puppies are so adorable, right? To keep them out of the stewpot when they’re naughty?

    Have fun!


  76. - Irish - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:41 pm:

    You probably know this, but I have found that a wind up alarm clock near their bed at night does calm them down when they are in a new setting. It really does work.


  77. - Irish - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:44 pm:

    Boone’s is Back @3:25 - Yeah but when he starts eating what the gesse have left it ain’t funny. Been there, seen the green whiskers.


  78. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:51 pm:

    ===wind up alarm clock near their bed===

    Yeah. Just don’t set the alarm. Freaks ‘em out. lol


  79. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 3:54 pm:

    - cheryl44 - and - soccermom -,

    Thanks for the laughs. Awesome.

    Rich, all joking aside, congratualtions, Oscar is awesome and I wish Oscar a hearty welcome!


  80. - collar observer - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 4:07 pm:

    Welcome Oascar! too cute!


  81. - myoldpostcards - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 4:22 pm:

    Congratulations! Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers are great dogs. We brought home our first Wheaten in 1991 and have had two or three around our house ever since. Sweet, sweet temperament. Our Jelly Bean and Bella Grace welcome Oscar to Springfield.

    How nice to name your dog after that famous Chicago Cubs reliever from the 70s, Oscar Zamora.


  84. - RNUG - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 5:45 pm:

    Cute pup … and the crate will grow on him.

    Only see one problem Rich. Now, instead of “Oh look, a kitty” … it will be “Oscar just went that-a-way!”


  85. - Belle - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 5:49 pm:

    Is there a bed for him to lay on in the crate? If you’re home, they generally like to be outside the crate and exploring but it is so chaotic watching them. When we’ve had pups that didn’t want to go in, we just offered a cookie bribe that we held inside the crate and they usually scoot right in.
    Congrats!!! He looks like a super star! Best wishes to Oscar from my dogs.


  86. - WazUp - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:26 pm:

    Cute dog Rich but Budweiser is not an appropriate dog food!


  87. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:32 pm:

    *gets up afer lying on the floor, quietly scheming for hours to take a closer look at the scruffy-faced being that just walked into the thread. Eyes widen as she wonders, “Could Oscar possibly have grown that big in just a couple of days?” Thinks about what she read on Wikipedia about puppies for a few seconds, remembering that almost all puppies walk on four legs and then leaps for joy as she realizes it is not Oscar, but…Rich Miller! Skips with joy toward the big guy and then tugs on his jacket to get his attention and asks:*

    Mr. Rich, how did YOU convince your family to let you bring an Oscar home?


  88. - downstate commissioner - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:34 pm:

    Rich, you’re in trouble-as of 7:33, Oscar has more comments than Lisa…


  89. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:41 pm:

    Phew. It worked! (Not that I wanted to get Rich in any kind of trouble, or that I really didn’t want Lisa to win to the photo caption contest today…but Oscar is terribly, terribly cute. And, it is, after all, his debut.)


  90. - Formerly Known As... - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:48 pm:

    Where’s my intern?
    - Oscar


  91. - Du Jour - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:49 pm:

    Buck Laughlin: And to think that in some countries these dogs are eaten.

    From Best in Show


  92. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:50 pm:

    I hope Lisa understands.


  93. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:51 pm:

    (Think that seals a wide enough margin for Oscar, commissioner?)


  94. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:55 pm:

    I’m sure this requires no explanation, but my 7:50 is an add-on to my 7:41 and has nothing to do with Du Jour’s comment.


  95. - Anonymous - Thursday, Jan 24, 13 @ 7:59 pm:

    And yes, Du Jour, it is awful. Absolutely heartbreaking.
