Surgery can be ruff, but not for this brave and happy dog!

Oscar, a Golden Retriever from Australia, underwent a successful surgery to remove tumors. His owner Sarah told BuzzFeed that she took a picture of Oscar all blissed out on sedatives, apparently so much so that he smiled.

“He always had a tendency to smile, so that plus the sedatives ends up with this photo," Sarah told BuzzFeed.

Since Sarah tweeted the picture, it has been retweeted more than 100,000 times and has nearly 400,000 likes.

"He deserves to be Twitter famous he had 7 fatty tumours taken out," she tweeted back to a user.

She also gave updates on Oscar’s recovery, tweeting a picture of him and his feline friend relaxing together.

So, how’s Oscar handling his newfound fame? Well, pictures show he has some "security" looking out for him.

The photo not only makes everyone smile, it also prompted fellow dog owners to share pictures of their furry friends.
