Diving for rose petals

Many many thanks for all your wonderful messages of sympathy on Oscar’s passing. It has meant a lot to me.

This week I went down to Oscar’s favourite place, the jetty on our lake,

And threw some rose petals into the water as a way of honouring my furry friend.

Ruby, who is Oscar’s great-granddaughter, and who we have been fostering for the past nine months,

Decided to honour Oscar in his favourite activity: diving into the lake.

She carefully retrieved one of the roses

And placed it on the jetty.

We sat for a while

Enjoying the autumn scenery and good memories of Oscar.

I’d say that a part of him lives on in Ruby, who is now our own dog.

Be warned: you might see more pictures of wet (and dry) dogs here on my blog after all!

Little note: I won’t be able to reply to your comments, but I do cherish each and every one of them!

Doing what he does best

No matter how cold it gets,

In frost or snow,

Oscar is always ready to dive into rainbows

And swim in waters of reflected skies of blue.

After all, there’s nothing more satisfying than

Doing what you love.
