Love at First Sniff

On a Sunday afternoon at the Washington Square dog park, I smelled him.

His scent permeated the dog park and it caught my attention.


He looked at me with his dark, soulful eyes.
And oh my dog - I love his hair!


I looked at him.
Do I look okay? Does this collar make me look fat?


We met.


We introduced ourselves.
I told him I was a Leo from California who loves beaches, digging, chasing squirrels, and eating human food.


We were both smitten.


Do you mind???
I'm spayed, he's neutered.


We're in love!
His name is Oscar and he's a red sable, longhair dachshund. He weighs about 11.5 lbs. He lives in New York and I live in California. How will this loooong distance relationship work?

Franny + Oscar = <3
Pair-O-Dox,
Franny


P.S. Check out Chloe's blog and read about her Oscar sighting!

Hi Franny,

You must be having a really good time. We miss you so much.

We borrowed a sleepying pic of you and Margot for my sleepy post tomorrow. When you get back come over and see all of us snoozing.
