Oscar in a Buggy

What do you do when your elderly dog can’t walk too far any more but you don’t want to leave him at home? Put him in the buggy!

Oscar was at least 13 in this photo in 2014 and couldn’t walk very far at all by this time but we couldn’t bear to leave him at home so he even came on holidays with us!

We still miss him.

Sheep’s Head, June 2014.

As 2014 draws to a close in a matter of hours I had to post this photo of Oscar that represented his life in the last two years until his death just over a month ago. He was never a very active dog but he found it difficult to keep going when we were out so more often than not we also took a buggy with us. We walked the islands of Cape Clear and Sherkin with him, we walked around County Cork and Kilkenny and Waterford. We took holidays in pet friendly accommodation so he could be with us. He was a rescue dog who became a king.

The end of a year is the closing of a chapter in our lives, with new delights and adventures in the next year. Happy new year!

Oscar on the beach again!

2007-12-10-8667-m

This photo of Oscar was taken in 2007 at Garrettstown Beach where Oscar loved to chase tennis balls. We always thought he was middle aged back then and nowadays he doesn’t do much running around at all. It’s hard to believe that was seven years ago!

One Eye Oscar!

Shih Tzu dogs need a lot of grooming and Oscar is no exception. This is him in the snow on Christmas Day last year. Good thing he had all that fur as it was freezing!

The Snow Dog

Oscar our Shih Tzu is as comfortable in snow as he is in any other extreme weather. He’d rather be indoors in the warmth!

It snowed heavily and steadily today in Blarney. We took Adam out in it after wrapping him up warm and he played with the kids down the road, throwing snow around, messing with a bucket, and generally having fun.

Hi Mairead! Glad you follow my blog, you should comment some time! 🙂
