Oscar: The Scientific Study

19 Apr

I’ve been tracking the domestic canine in the hopes of gathering more information about his migration patterns and everyday rituals.

The journey has been demanding. The roads, perilous. Despite the obstacles I’ve faced—one of which include starvation because my subject is particularly fond of devouring everything in sight—I’ve managed to capture these portraits of Canis lupus familiaris right after his morning meal.

After filling his belly with the proper nutrients to sustain his body, the domestic canine settles down to rest.

I’ve been spotted! I remained motionless to avoid agitating him. Let’s see what his next move may be…

Phew. Disaster avoided!

    Shh careful now, you don’t want to wake up his insatiable appetite.

    I’m glad you were able to avoid disaster. I was worried when you were spotted. Such a ferocious (though very cute) creature!

    Lol. “The roads, perilous”…love that! So glad you made it out alive!!

    P.S. Oscar reminds me so much of Gus the way he’s laying on his side…giving you the stink eye. 😉

      I love doggie stink eyes! They’re more cute than stinky. 😀
