So, so sorry to hear of the passing of poor Oscar. :( :( :( Reading back over his thread, though, all in DID and you, his forever family improved the quality of his life NO END and, for that, you can all be very proud and gratified. He knew true love and happiness (albeit shortlived :( :( :( ) and I am sure his last months were very happy for him. So sad.

So sorry to hear Oscar has gone to the rainbow bridge.... Ill never forget him when he came into the pound... god love him he was in such an awful state..one of the worst cases I have seen. Then he got the chance he needed when he ended up in DID's care, it was great to see him blossom and become the dog he was meant to be...free of pain and so happy.... Even though that time was too short he was very lucky to get such a great home.

Run free little man xxxx

Oh no!!! I'm so so sorry to hear this!!!!!! It was only when his story came up on the main page that I remembered I actually saw his story from the start! I didn't realise he was a DID doggie, I would be quite new here.. I can't believe he is on this!!!! That first picture of him has always stuck in my mind!! I was living in Galway at the time and was following his story for a little bit..I'm so happy to have found out he got a forever family, but deeply saddened by the other bad news! :cry: he is such a beautiful looking dog!!! Someone said it earlier, a big teddy bear!!!! Oh this is so so sad, the poor little monkey!! Lots of love to his wonderful forever family, nothing can describe the pain you must be feeling right now!! Love to everyone who helped this great dog achieve the life he so deserved!!! Poor Oscar :cry: :cry: :cry: xxxxxxxxxxxx

I too remember the day Oscar came into the Pound. He was a very sorry sight but always a gentleman.

You gave him a wonderful loving home and he will always be with you.

Oscar - at rest, never forgotton.

Thank you all so much for your kind words which mean so much to us. We've shed so many tears over the past 10 days but there's been great comfort in knowing that there are 'Doggie-people' who understand what we're feeling.

Right now our lives feel so empty but we keep reminding ourselves that our lives were enriched by Oscar. The 19 months he was with us were wonderful and the memories are very precious. Oscar brought out the playful puppy in our dog Max (age 7) who had thought he was human until Oscar moved into his patch and taught him how to charge around the house, launch himself off the back of the sofa, drag cushions around the house... I could go on and on... Poor Max.

Oscar had inherited a 'gene' that meant he was predisposed to seizures which could have started anytime from birth to the age of 5. It just seems so unfair that our 'little tatty teddy' had such a terrible start to what was going to be a short life. Thankfully he found Dogs in Distress and they turned things around for him.

I'm attaching a photo of Oscar that my daughter took with her phone as she was heading off to school that morning - 2 hours before Oscar became ill. He loved to sneak up to her bedroom just before she left and he'd lie on her bed for most of the morning.

Thank you all for your kindness to us but above all to our beloved Oscar xx
