Your weekly Oscar the Puppy pic

Friday, Mar 25, 2016

* As I told you the other day, I’m heading to Phoenix to watch some spring training baseball games and try to decompress. I’ll miss this little guy something fierce. When we’re not in session, I spend most of my day working out of my home, so he keeps me company and helpfully distracts me when I get too into work. I just don’t know what I’d do without him…

    “Governor, when are you going to give us a budget?,” Oscar

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

    Have a great trip!

    Safe Travels, Rich…

    An Oscar picture, just when I know I needed it most.

    Think about how happy you both will be upon your return. That will help.

    Have fun.

    “But why can’t I go, too, dad?”

    It is amazing the difference a dog can make in a persons life. Before I had one, I never thought I would worry about “getting home” to make sure the dog was alright.

    This is an exceptionally fine portrait of Oscar,
    fit for a Capitol building wall. Seems lacking
    a bow tie.

    Oscar: “Just tie a pink ribbon around my neck, put me in a big Easter basket and take me along. Everyone will think I’m an oversized, stuffed animal!”

    Happy Easter pal. This picture confirms that Oscar is the best groomed male member of the family. lol. Have a safe trip.

    Second cutest dog in the world (only a monster doesn’t think his own dog is the cutest and I may be a monster, but not in that way.

  14. - BBG - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 2:24 pm:

    Nothing like the pure love and companionship of a faithful canine! Enjoy your time off!

  19. - Juvenal - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 2:42 pm:

    Rich -

    Had to do a double take.

    Read it “Spent most of my morning working out at home.”

    Nevertheless: stay healthy, happy and wise!


  20. - illini - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 2:43 pm:

    Thanks for the post. Given what I have been going through these past 2 weeks, I needed this. Always puts a smile on my face.

    Enjoy your trip and be safe.


  21. - Nieva - Friday, Mar 25, 16 @ 2:49 pm:

    Man they can sure make you feel guilty when you have to leave for a few days. I would swear ours sheds tears.
