O is for Oskar

Kentucky Derby Pie Link 22? E-mail me. Your link doesn't work and I want to fix it for you!


Oskar the weiner dog's
stubby legs wobble.
As he runs through the house
looking for things to gobble.

He is not discerning.
He just doesn't care,
if it's kleenex or kids books
or mens underwear.

Green tomatoes from the garden,
Printer cartridges from the desk,
But getting to the garbage can
Is the thing that he likes best.

He's not too particular.
He's really not picky.
To Oskar the weiner dog
nothing is icky.

Oskar the fat, little weiner dog
is always ready to eat!
So if you come to visit me
you better watch your FEET! This post is brought to you by the Letter "O" and is linked to Jenny Matlock
PS. No weiner dogs were starved in the artistic creation of these photos.

I love Oskar! He and Daisy would become fast friends I am sure. You did exceptional on the poem as well. Who grades the teacher? I will give you an A+ for such a cute and endearing "O"

Deb said...

Nora Johnson said...

Dear Ms Matlock!

This week's assignment is too easy!! Couldn't decide between Oscars,Opposites,Opera, Olives,Ocean etc! (Love your Oskar!)

btw How about, when we reach 'Z' starting from scratch again - no prizes, just for fun! We've all had to leave out so many great letters so far along the way!

Have a great Alphabe-Thursday!

XOXO LOLA:)

Susan said...

Oh dear, we have the same problem at our house. What is it with dachshunds and kleenax and garbage.
I love all the them. They make me smile.

Nadeen said...

Oh good grief! Not the textbook-eating, dog that can't tell an open gate when he sees one! But ya gotta love 'em.

Jennifer said...

I wish my dogs would take cool pics like this.
I love Oskar. :D

Tina said...

Oscar should come play with Teddy. I'm taking care of my friends dog for a few days and we've had move all the trash cans up and out of his reach. What is it with the kleenex anyway??? Great poem, Jenny!

Dawn said...

LOL! Just imagine what he could get into if his little legs were taller! My lab once turned on the gas to one of the burners on my stove when I left a good smelling pan there. Luckliy I noticed right away!

Christy said...

Why do dogs love to eat trash anyways??? One of the mysteries of life!

Jules said...

Oh my goodness, how adorable. Great poem too.

Maggie B said...

Oskar looks so charming and intelligent I can't believe the outrageous things you're saying about him! He looks offended!

Tarun Mitra said...

He is a cute doggy :)

Debbie said...

Oskar! I love him I love his little legs and that cute face! He is certainly no dummie, he picked you as his wienie MOM!!~

Cheryl said...

Great O! I was so relieved to read that disclaimer at the end; I was worried because he looked SOOO malnourished.

easternsparkle said...

Oskar wasjust made for this post!

Sue said...

Oskar sounds like an Original Oddball!

Ms. Anthropy said...

I want to read the post about the unusual things removed from Oskar's intestines!

Jo said...

Oskar sounds like one heck of a little dog ... it's amazing what little dogs can do and get in to ... but does he eat homework??? he he he

mrs. c said...

Well I must say that Oskar is very talented, he can read and sit at the table! Love your poem, our Reuben love paper towels and will tear them into itty bitty pieces. Don't you just love our little dogs, what would life be without them!

beyondbaffled said...

I love your Oskar, he is so cute! My wienie dog's name is also Oscar and I think they would get along very well. He also thinks that anything left at his level is for him!

Red Couch Recipes said...

Jenny, you are a poet too. Very cute poem and dog! Joni

Tgoette said...

Brilliant! What a great poem and what an awesomely cute dog! Great job!

Carol said...

Oh, your poem of Oskar is outstanding...and I am so proud of you...you didn't mention a thing about his Odor!

Just Breathe said...

That is so cute.

Unprocessed1 said...

Too cute!

Theresa said...

OHHHHH Oskar is so darn cute! Love him:) Have a blessed day!

jeff campbell said...

Pretty funny there Jenny:-) Cool poem. I have to admit that the only dog EVER to bite me was a dachsund. FYI...I do not hold a grudge:-) Peace and blessings

Brenda said...

Cute,cute poem about Oskar. Our bug likes to grab tissue out of the the trash if the grands leave the bath door open. She grabs and runs under the couch. I always need to scold through laughter because she just cracks me up.

Sook said...

How cute!

Short and Sweet said...

Oskar is so cute! I really like your poem as it is the perfect ode to Oskar. Good job.

Bossy Betty said...

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! That face!

paige said...

Awe, Oskar. I love you. Can I squeeze you a little?

Mighty M said...

I'll be sure to pack my feet watching glasses if I ever come to visit!

sandandstarfish said...

He is adorable!! Thanks for stopping by :) It's always so nice to get connected with new people!

diney said...

we have had 4 dachs in the past - gorgeous dogs with beautiful faces. We have a cocker spaniel now, but happy memories of our little dachs.

Country Dreaming said...

Waaaaaaaaaay toooo funny!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

We used to have dachshunds growing up-- I swear I used to think that they would eat rocks! We had a basset hound we couldn't keep out of the waste paper baskets either -- must be a hound thing -- our terriers (my husband calls them terrorists) don't to that.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

What a cute dog! I guess people don't have to take their shoes when they enter your house.

Emmy said...

Those pictures are awesome!!

Quilting in My Pyjamas said...

This is a classic! Love Oskar and love this post.


That dog is wayyyyyy too cute for his own good!

Sami said...

Aww, Oskar is adorable and so is his poem!!! :)

Cassie said...

Wow, is it Thursday again? That means Tuesday is right around the corner!
Sweet Oskar!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

This could be the beginning of a series of dog poetry...who knew? Lucky for us...the beagle princess sticks to paper products and an occasional sock if she is lucky.

Nezzy said...

I think I love Oskar! He looks like he's singin' in the last pic.....a little Motown maybe???? Heeehehehe!!!

You have yourself the best day sweetie!!!

Catherine said...

Oh he's so cute, that Oskar!
I could use him at my house ... he could just eat all the food that the kids drop on the floor, he wouldn't need to dig in the garbage can. I bet he'd take care of the toys they leave lying around, too! Send him on to Texas Jenny :) .
Great poem, too!

Sarah said...

OK, this is the best one yet! Love your Oskar inspired poetry.

Dee said...

Does your talents never end? love oscar even though I am a cat lady. :)

Kathleen said...

Obviously Oskar is One Obstinate dog!

Meri Wiley said...

Hi Jenny,

I love your wiener dog.....so cute! I've already got four of your boxes done, I think you're going to like them.

Have a great weekend!
Meri

Christy said...

What a cute post! How perfect you chose Oskar for your O post. Our little weiner dog loves to eat too and gets into everything. Yesterday I caught her actually in my purse, rooting around for a breath mint!

this is such a fun meme...thank you for starting it!

Brenda said...

He's too cute!

Lourie said...

What a sweet pup. A bit of a garbage disposal (lol) but sweet and super cute.

DaShannon said...

thanks for visiting my blog! Oskar is absolutely adorable and must run the urban farm :)

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

I'd sure like to know how you got the weiner dog to stand still long enough to snap the picture.

Very cute poem. Be glad you don't have a cat with a kitty litter box. Trust me on this.

Julienne said...

Thanks for the mark and your visit! I am reading Stieg Larsson's 'the girl with the dragon tattoo' can't put it down! If you haven't already read it you should give it a go except that there are 3 books altogether and I have to go buy the other 2 as I can't wait to borrow them!!!!! Very addictive.

Beedeebabee said...

You're hysterical! Smiling from ear to ear over that one! ... Oscar is adorable, even if he eats men's underwear. xo Paulette

Sares said...

He sounds like a real character! My little pomeranian loves to sneak under the cupboard when you pull out the garbage can to empty it, looking for fallen scraps. Once she got locked in there. I heard her yipping and could NOT figure out where it was coming from. I finally discovered her trapped under the sink with the garbage can! Served her right.

Vicki said...

O...I just knew you would do OSKAR!

He needs his 15 minutes too (o:

GardenofDaisies said...

Oskar you are just so adorable! Jenny, he looks just like our old dog Tupi. She was just the sweetest, cuddliest dog ever.

I'm a full-time mummy said...

Hey, I tagged you in a photo meme. Come on over and hope you can join in the fun!

Bonnie said...

Jenny, Thanks for visiting my blog. I am laughing as I read yours. Love the mobcap in the previous post! So very attractive and school-marmish.

Julie Schuler said...

a ha ha ha! That was so charming! I love wiener dogs, but I never had one! They feel so sleek and look so cute.

"Kentucky Derby Pie Link 22? E-mail me. Your link doesn't work and I want to fix it for you!"


?????????????????

Don't know what the above, refers to but... We want "Dublin" to win the Derby. Not that we bet. We just love a story with a horse.

And "Dublin" is trained by an old trainer. Anthony feels he has a chance to win this Derby, with this horse. That's all we need, to rooooooooot for "Dublin." :-)

Pondside said...

Oskar is a sweetie! You can come to visit Rosie any time - she'll save you some of her favorite chewy sticks and chestnuts.

Flat Creek Farm said...

Oskar is precious! And so is the poem! -Tammy

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

Sassy, I can tell by the second picture, and too innocent looking to blame, by the looks of the first one. However, after reading your funny poem, I hear that Oskar the fat little wiener dog rules the roost at your house. Thanks for the laugh to start my day!

Lindsay said...

hehe love it!! Our dog is currently addicted to dirty diapers!! gag!

Linda said...

Dogs are like that, yes they are!! Cute rhyme Miss Jenny!

Amanda said...

Cute poem. Aren't dogs fun? We have to keep our cat box away from our dog, because cat poo is his favorite thing ever. Although, he used to really love dirty socks. Our kids once got quite a big surprise when they saw him poop a tube sock. They were much more careful after that to use the laundry hamper!

Melinda Cornish said...

I love oskar the fat little weiner dog....

Bits-n-Pieces said...

oskar s too cute. My maggie just loves to grab things and take off running with them! just to get me to chase her!

Steph said...

Oskar is our poodle's hero. He is such a cute, hungry weiner dog and your poem is hilarious. You are a wonderful word crafter.
