Making a splash

Please indulge me as I carry on with Oscar’s birthday tribute:

He turned 11 at the weekend, which is a good age for a dog his size.

Whatever he does, he does wholeheartedly —

Seizing the moment

And filling it with joy.

A lesson we could all learn from.

  1. Oh, I just love to see Oscar in your posts! Eleven!! You are very blessed to have him in your life for such a long time. We’ve had two goldens; one lived to age 3 (heart defect) and the other, age 9 (cancer). Beautiful pics!


  2. I think Oscar deserves a daily celebration, so carry on with the birthday fun for as long as you want! 🙂 Love these action shots, great accompaniments to your lovely description of Himself.


  3. Indulge all year, birthdays should last month at the least…..but that’s a bias argument. Good shtuffs -great capture of spirit an soul. These make me laugh, as Elvira is an water dog as well, but dislikes it -bath okay, lakes and ponds NO go. Oh, well all have quarks.


  4. Big birthday hugs to Oscar. He’s a joy to watch, isn’t he? Always out making the most of each and every day. Although I can’t believe he’s still swimming in that freezing water – he must have a really fantastic body warming system!


  5. I could learn a lot from Oscar. He lives in the moment. I think you capture his brave spirit in your photos of him. And the photos show as much about your love for him as they show about Oscar! He’s stunning and he has a splendid life!


  6. I had a dog, Tarri, lived to 17 years, beauty. Liked like yours, I hope that Oscar will live to grand age. Happy birthday Oscar.


  7. 11 is such a good age for Oscar. But to me he looks as if he has a lot of life still left in him. Seeing some of the things he does and some of his mannerisms, he acts so youthfully.


  8. Happy Birthday to a very happy Oscar! What amazing shots your mum took of you, Oscar; and what an agile gentleman you are. Have a wonderful day. From the Hedges and menagerie in Tanzania: Jo, Ginger, Shadow, Ambrose, Jess and Blackie. xxx Purrs xxx


  9. Ready, steady…. Sit! I said Sit….Whilst I get my camera ready for a great shot… Oh, ok Jump in then!!! Great photos and well captured it’s not easy working with animals but your Oscar is obviously a star. My Crazy poodle is used to the routine by now also!
