As soon as he recognized Bob & Bonnie from their web page, Oscar shouted "Lets get started!" and bounded over, making himself right at home doing his favorite thing. He's a natural . . .
Oscar & I walked around the Fredericksburg RV Park noticing how pretty it is . . .
Oscar thought this dog was very well trained because every time we waked by him, he was always in the very same spot playing with the ball. Oscar was very impressed with "Rover's" obedience training discilpine. (Something Oscar could use a bit of, but that's a story for another time)
The park has a duck pond, with a huge bullfrog that sings at night and a pleasant sitting deck with a waterfall, complete with goldfish pond.
Oscar wanted to cool his paws in the waters until he saw the gator. I told him it was only a scarecrow to protect the fish, but he wasn't too sure. I told him that any dog who killed Sasquatch should be fearless.
After the ceramic monkeys laughed at him, Oscar quickly jumped in the pond and hopped out saying "I'm NOT a'scared of no gator." The monkeys showed him respect after that one.
Bob & Bonnie took us for a nice drive on the Willow-Loop where we saw spring cactus in bloom . . .
And a spring calf doing what spring calves do . . .
On our final day as I prepared for our departure, Oscar-the-Lap-Dog was supervising the packing operation from the vantage point of Bob's lap. I could hear Oscar telling them how much he liked their big rig and that he could really, really get used to it, and how comfortable their laps were, and he asked if they would teach him how to be a HAM operator . . .
Sensing this was heading in the wrong direction I told Oscar he had an appointment with Jessica, his groomer. He said "Jessica! She's my favorite fur stylist! " and he hopped off Bob's lap and into the Tacoma. During his appointment with Jessica, Oscar was telling her about his fearless brush with the 25 foot long, 300 pound alligator (yeah . . . right) and saying how he looked forward to seeing Bob & Bonnie again when they returned in November.
