Special Blessings to Oscar for being such a wonderful Mama!! These kids are lucky to have her!

Question: Why did they name a female dog "Oscar?" LOL

Animals are so loving and special - if only everyone cared for them the way we all do. Oscar, you are an amazing beautiful dog - may you stay forever safe.

Wonderful!! That is one of the most unique stories I've heard.
Unbelievable and that was just incredible.
That dog is literally thinking and doing something that feels necessary. So human or rather better than humans. I can't say enough.

I deeply appreciate this post. TY!!!
