    Dogs rule!


  2. - GV - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:13 pm:

    Woof.


  3. - jim - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:14 pm:

    great looking dog. I can tell just by looking at him that he’s extremely self-confident.


  4. - Cindy Lou - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:16 pm:

    Little guy makes me smile every time.


  5. - Anon221 - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:17 pm:

    Afternoon AHHHH :)

    Thanks Rich!


  6. - Jake From Elwood - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:17 pm:

    Cute puppy.
    Please promise us there’ll be no pictures in a sailor suit, devil costume or the like…
    Don’t do Oscar like that.


  7. - Soccermom - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    This is a first - Rich may be more groomed than Oscar!


  8. - Amalia - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    ah, soothing puppy cam! that request yesterday was hilarious!


  9. - Archiesmom - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:18 pm:

    Happy holidays, Oscar!


  10. - Honeybear - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:19 pm:

    nice, really nice. That made my day.


  11. - Oswego Willy - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:24 pm:

    Always great seeing Oscsr here. He’s like an old friend already, bringing you back to your Zen.

    Love seeing him.


  12. - walker - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:25 pm:

    Yep. Smooths out all the wrinkles.

    Thanks Dog.


  13. - illini - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:26 pm:

    Always puts a smile on my face regardless of the other contentious discussions discussions and topics being discussed on this blog. Thanks


  14. - Skeptic - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:35 pm:

    Rich: I think it would have been funnier if you had committed to an Oscar picture each week until a budget is passed. But more Oscar is better Oscar. We’re the winners here.


  15. - Grass Bowl - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:35 pm:

    Great looking pooch


  16. - Formerly Known As... - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:39 pm:

    YES.


  17. - john doe - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:40 pm:

    Burglars beware!


  18. - RNUG - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:43 pm:

    Always need an Oscar break …


  19. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:44 pm:

    Oscar looks like he’s dying to know: who’s a good boy? Really, who is it? Who can it be?

    I think he’ll be happy when you tell him Rich.


  20. - cb - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:44 pm:

    great idea to have a weekly appearance by Oscar


  21. - Gone, but not forgotten - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:46 pm:

    Oh, Oscar! All I want for Christmas is you in a Santa hat next week!


  22. - burbanite - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:47 pm:

    Adorable!


  23. - L.A. - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 2:59 pm:

    Too cute!


  24. - VanillaMan - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:01 pm:

    “look into my eyes….treat….you want to give me a treeeeeeeat!”


  25. - nadia - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:05 pm:

    He must be a good dog I don’t see any yellow stains on the carpet!


  26. - Anon - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:20 pm:

    It’s 2015.


  27. - WhoKnew - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:21 pm:

    Reminds me that we too once had an Oscar.

    He truly was a friend of mine.

    Enjoy your little fellow & thanks for sharing!


  28. - ihpsdm - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:22 pm:

    So cute. I had to put my dog to sleep a month ago and it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do.


  29. - Streator Curmudgeon - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:26 pm:

    Rich, as a fellow dog owner, I can say they’re better than a room full of therapists!


  30. - Mollies Dad - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:26 pm:

    “The more I’m around people, the more I like my dog…”


  31. - @MisterJayEm - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:42 pm:

    I love my dog
    He’s my dog
    If you don’t love my dog
    That’s okay
    I don’t want you to
    He’s my dog

  32. - Barton Lorimor - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:56 pm:

    OSCAR!


  33. - View from the Cheap Seats - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 3:59 pm:

    Me thinks Miller planted this question so he could justify continued Oscar posts…


  34. - 32nd Ward Roscoe Village - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:14 pm:

    “He gives more than he could every receive, like all dogs.” –The Thief of Bagdad, 1940


  35. - AC - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:15 pm:

    “Rough!” was how Oscar described his hiatus from the blog during his Q&A session.


  36. - Fun with Numbers - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:17 pm:

    Give the people what they want :)


  37. - illini - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:19 pm:

    Cheap Seats - I don’t care if he planted it or not. Many of us here love Oscar. He helps some of us realize that there are equally important things to think about than “hostage taking” and the Turn Around Agenda. And sorry, I should have proofed an earlier post before sending it.


  38. - Rich Miller - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:19 pm:

    ===I don’t care if he planted it or not===

    lol

    Who would ever plant a question like that?

    Hilarious.

    Move along.


  39. - Just Askin' - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:23 pm:

    He blends in nicely, which begs the question: Does Oscar shed a lot or was your carpet always that color?


  40. - View from the Cheap Seats - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:28 pm:

    Keep in mind my post was a joke folks…A little humor is needed.


  41. - Wensicia - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:31 pm:

    Oscar’s very handsome. Next up, his own Twitter feed?


  42. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 4:31 pm:

    ===Who would ever plant a question like that?===

    Steve Brown?


  43. - Duncan Sheltie - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 5:13 pm:

    Where is the “like” button?


  44. - illini - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 5:22 pm:

    Thanks “Cheap Seats” we need a little “humor” on this site quite often. And thanks to Rich as well.


  45. - Mama - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 5:29 pm:

    Rich, Oscar told me he wants a ham bone for Christmas.


  46. - Clint W. Sabin - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 5:34 pm:

    For those of you wondering if it was a planted question, I am the one that asked it. Too often pictures of Oscar are the only cheerful thing on this blog.


  47. - Anonymous - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 6:30 pm:

    It’s been two dog years without a budget


  48. - illini - Thursday, Dec 17, 15 @ 9:07 pm:

    Clint W. Sabin - just got back home and online after a meeting - Thank you for asking the question. We all respect Rich, but we love Oscar. And you are so right - we all need a a cheerful break from the normal discourse on this site.


  49. - A Citizen - Friday, Dec 18, 15 @ 1:15 am:
