Birthday Woos Blues

ThunderJust as we are reeling from the news about Benny, comes another wave of sadness for our beloved Thunder.  There are so many questions “why” right now, things just don’t seem to make sense.

Our internet is out at home.  We’ve had bad storms here in Michigan & our township flooded in one day.  We are all fine, our house is not in danger of flooding.  My mom person has been here most of her life & never remembers that happening before.  We’re not in an area that usually floods.  It’s supposed to keep storming until Tuesday, so who knows when we’ll have a regular internet connection & electricity that doesn’t keep going out.

I turned 8 yesterday (Friday), but I don’t feel like celebrating right now.  Once things get back to normal my mom person says I can have a comment-a-thon instead of getting presents with the proceeds going to Benny & to be split with Thunder’s family if they need help.

Keep your eye’s peeled so I can get tons of comments to help our friends. I’m holding out my paw to all of Blogville so we can hold hands & pray for our friends & their families.

Fight Like A Frenchie Benny!

I heard the news the other day that my pawsome friend Benny had cancer.

Oskar1I was so  mad I started shaking!


I’ve got one thing to say to you cancer…

Benny1Benny’s treatment is going to be expensive.  Please consider donating to help defray the costs of his treatment.

We love you Benny!  And Andrea & Lily too!

Can I Get Your Input?


Can I ask you to help me out?  No I don’t need help getting the leaf off of my face, my mom person already took care of that.  I really want to get your input on your feelings about The Daily Oskar.

I want to know what you want.  To that end my mom person has compiled a brief survey to find out more about you.

It’s real short, 10 questions, so it will only take a second.

We recently ran a survey like this on Pet blogs United, and that provided my mom person & I with so much great feedback that we want to do the same thing for my blog.  So if you wouldn’t mind filling out this survey, even if you already did the on on PBU, it would be pawsome!

If you would click over to our survey and give us your feedback I’ll send you tons of nubbin wiggles and schnauzer snuggles! Thanks so much for your help!

Pet Blogs United Is Down Again, What’s Up With Our Roses & A Blue Update

Okay, so the squirrels have gotten to Pet Blogs United again…we can’t access through Blogger.  AGAIN!

Please be patient with us.  Hopefully we will be able to move PBU to WordPress soon.

Now for our question of the day.

When my peeps bought this house 18 years ago, they planted peach colored roses in front.  This one is sad, but they were all this color.

DSC_0012Does anyone know why they would change colors after 18 years?

In good news, the new Blue’s my mom person ordered from Walmart online are available to be picked up at the store today!  Something about a pulled muscle & something called a muscle relaxer are keeping her from getting them for me today though.

If you’re on Twitter you may be familiar with #NipClub.  Today our friends at the PAWS Animal Shelter in Connecticut is the recipient of the #NipClub fund raiser.  PAWS is the shelter where our friend Kevin, MeowMeowMans, from Animal Shelter Volunteer Life works with his wife Tracey.

My mom person was lucky enough to meet Kevin & Tracey at BlogPaws this year & they were every bit as wonderful in person as they have always been as our online friends.

Oh The Humanity!!!

Do you see this innocent looking shed?  It’s in my back yard & has my cool schnauzer sign on it & our proudly waving American flag…

2013-06-05 17.01.56Wait until you see what this monster did.  I can’t even look, I’m staying back here.
