Here’s the man you’ve been waiting to see.  Oscar Mora-Yates: Mexican street dog turned Los Angeles rockstar. Notice how his name doesn’t have the same ring to it as Ruca Bean Yates-Mora does.  He needs a middle name, and we need your help choosing one.  A little bit about Oscar: he likes to jump, groan, sleep, mount RBYM, wrestle, stumble over his ginormous paws, and eat kibbles.  He’s a sweet guy who enjoys the simple things in life, and he needs a name that reflects this.  Help us help Oscar.

    He certainly is handsome. How about Oscar Wilde Yates-Mora? I think he’s very dignified, so a British middle name would suit him! XO

    Oscar de la Yates-Mora maintains that Mexican heritage. Oscar Rice Yates-Mora compliments Ruca Bean pretty nicely.

    most amazing story! that’s the hardest part about traveling sometimes to foreign countries is all the street dogs and how poorly they are treated. quite a contrast to how the US views dogs as cherished pets/members of the family. kudos on the new addition to the family. i’m sure ruca is quite pleased to have new partner in crime

    Oscar de la Mora-Yates (play on Oscar de Lahoya)? He is a sweet boy – congrats on your new addition!

    Oooh, I like those too. I’ve been calling him Oscar Mania. Lou hates it.
    The vet said he thinks he’s somewhere between 6-9 months. We’ll see what he says in 6 months. :)
