Hi there. My name is Ozzie. I came to live with this lady in Eugene and she’s got me on such a busy schedule, I have to nap a lot. We get up each morning and go to work. I find this very boring. We sit in a little room, where I get to play with toys while my mom works on a big machine with a big screen on it. She pays attention to that screen, and sometimes I feel neglected, so I pick my toys up and run down the hall to the big office. There are two ladies who work there who give me lots of love, plus lots of people come in the door, so I get to meet all sorts of new friends. Some of them have shoelaces, and I love to bite and pull on those. Mom always comes looking for me and, when she gets to take a break, we go for a walk out on the quad, walk around the sidewalks on campus (you should see all the people I meet there! they think I’m the cutest). Mom also throws the ball for me in the hallway and I am learning to fetch. I don’t like to play fetch outside, because there are too many sticks, bees, acorns, cigarette butts, and smells to research. I have no time to pay attention to the ball! Anyway, Aunt Ronda wrote to Mom today and said Max and Sophie want to see some pictures of my face, so we’ll post some here. I’ve also asked Mom to include some action shots of me doing a good fetch.
Mom says this new camera is just the best. Once she figures out how to use all the fancy things it does, we’ll have even fancier pictures. Of course, it would be nice if we took them in nicer settings. Mom works in a nasty old building. Thank goodness it’s a holiday weekend and we get to stay home!
