I bet you want to break that leash and hop free! You look like a pogo stick the way you hop along so gracefully (I mean you Oslo, definitely not your mom who can't keep up). Nice fur Oslo, but do I detect a pink snownose in your first video?

(Thank goodness your amputation was not one day later, or else we could not count you as part of the superstar July tripawd cohort, not that I'm biased or anything Winker )

SIX MONTHS ALREADY?!?!?!?  Wow, Oslo!  Time is just flying by, huh?  What a happy day Superstar  You look pretty cool lying in the snow (i kept adding thoughts to him like, "'s just snow.  dudes, chill out with the camera...I'm busy here") and I love your cammo jacket!  You French dogs are so fashionable 🙂  Grats, "little" buddy!

My dad says that every day we get to spend together is a day for celebration, but when you reach a real milestone then a PAWRTY is in order.  Believe me, reaching the six month ampuversary is definately a reason to PAWRTY. Dad and I took a trip out to the trailer this morning and start preparing for trips. While we often take rides on Sundays, I knew that this was something special. He and Mom will be celebrating vicarously with you and proposting a toast to many more such great milestones. Your mom does know how great each and every moment is and that is really what it is all about.

Oslo, you are such a graceful hopper!

And Oslo's mom, I have a question.  We live in California so eating snow is not an option.  Do the snow crystals help make your teeth cleaner?

Hoppy ampuversary!!
