Oscar’s Barbecue Extravaganza

31 May

Oscar and I are back on the blogosphere following Mother Nature’s first hints of summer! The sunshine revitalized our spirits after a demanding work week and we hope our American blogging friends enjoyed a three-day weekend filled with family, friends and good food.

Camping out by the barbecue. Does Oscar look more slender? Yea or nay?

Waiting patiently (using the term very loosely) while the grill works its magic.

Grilling is taking much longer than he anticipated!

Although our weekend consisted of strolling through the park, bagging sales and gathering around the barbecue, I spent some time reflecting on Memorial Day’s purpose. Many thanks to the men, women and war dogs who served and who continue to serve their country. Your sacrifice hasn’t been forgotten.

    Our weekend was very much like yours, except we replaced shopping with planting and post-winter home exterior spruce-ups. Very satisfying, but cashing in on those sales would have been more fun… πŸ˜‰

    Ditto on your last paragraph. Well said.

    Hey Oscar,

    It looks like you did an excellent job of keeping guard of that BBQ buddy – I hope you were rewarded?! Yep, I know you’re on a diet, but maybe a little something healthy? πŸ™‚

    Your pal Snoopy πŸ™‚

      Oscar enjoyed itty bitty bites of chicken and watermelon for a guarding job well done. πŸ˜€

    The best part of summer is friends, food, and sun!

    Oscar did a great job of guarding the BBQ, and looking so comfy at the same time. πŸ™‚

      Oscar has a doggie bed designated for outside use when the concrete and grass isn’t to his liking. πŸ˜›

    Ooohh…grilling on a Weber is the only way to go in my opinion. Sadly, ours is all packed up, so I’ll live vicariously through your blog. Thank goodness you didn’t post food photos. I might have showed up at your doorstep. πŸ˜‰

    Oscar camped out at the perfect spot. He wanted to make sure nothing fell out of the grill!

      Oscar switched between keeping his eyes on the grill and pacing around barbecue. As you can imagine, it was a little hard maintaining his diet with all the begging, but we managed to stay on track!

    Oscar certainly has the perfect view of the grill. Smart doggie!
