Oscar the cairn terrier captures the essence of how we were all feeling at the time. We were traveling north to Kaikoura from Christchurch, New Zealand, for the weekend and stopped on the banks of the Hurunui River for a quick lunch and a bit of a sniff. It was a hot spring day and Oscar had a wild time romping around. Oscar is the happiest and most vocal dog we've owned. He loves everyone and everything. His nicknames include Oscar-otti and Osicar Simpson depending on his pitch and poise.
