#TBT Pause for paws.

These photos of Oscar popped up in my Timehop today…

I’m guessing that Oscar must have got his haircut a year ago. And there was this one of Oscar using my hat and a TV remote as a pillow…

And this photo of Milan also popped up in my Timehop this morning…

His eyes were so green and so pretty. Always remembering the good times with the bud dog.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

This morning these adorable photos popped up in my Timehopย of Oscar looking out our bedroom window across at our next door neighbors roof…

He wasย on the lookout, always keeping a watchful eye out for squirrels…

Oscar’s so funny. And so dang cute. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฆ•โค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

When we sit out on our back patio and Genifer goes inside for something, Oscar and Mack both immediately sit down and stare at the door…

And then she comes back and they go about their business. They’re pretty silly.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Some photos of a very fuzzy Oscar popped up in my Timehop today…

He must have got his hair cut 2 years ago today.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Pause for paws.

Oscar had a vet appointment this morning. He got his next allergy shot. He was a very brave little guy. And then Genifer said he crashed out for the rest of the afternoon…

Pause for paws.

Oscar decided to stop and take a little break on our walk this evening…

Don’t mind me. I’m just enjoying the view and this little patch of shade.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿพโค๏ธ

Now that was a final.

We made our way over to Higher Gravity this morning to watch the 2018 World Cup final between France and Croatia. We were pulling for France, they were our pre-tournament pick to lift the World Cup but mostly we just wanted to see a really terrific final match regardless of who actually won. We were surprised with how much Higher Gravity really filled in as the match was about to begin…

And boy was it ever a good match! The perfect end to a truly incredible tournament. The match endedย 4-2 to France.ย SIX goals in a World Cup final, are you kidding me? Most of the World Cup finals are so conservative, defensive and boring. No one wants to make a mistake. This match was 90 minutes of end-to-end excitement. I didn’t want it to ever end. But all good thing have to come to an end… VIVA LA FRANCE!

And I finally got to get a photo with Jason from Higher Gravity’s Doggie the Dog

I’ve been following Doggie on Instagram since right after Higher Gravity opened about a year ago. But what an amazing month of soccer and an outstanding World Cup! It was one of the better ones in recent memory…

We’re already starting the four-year countdown to the next incredible World Cup. The next one will be in Qatar. And we can’t wait for more World Cup excitement.

Good morning from Northside.

It was a good Saturday morning in Northside.

Pause for paws.

Twelve days ago, I had my left hip completely replaced. Tonight, I took my dog on a walk around the block with just a little bit of help from my cane…

Modern medicine is truly awe-inspiring.ย ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿฅโค๏ธ
