  1. Oscar

    Our beautiful, loving, incorrigible Oscar crossed the bridge yesterday at 8:30am. He was loved and hugged and spoilt in his last days but was beginning to suffer from the effect of his spreading disease. We decided we would not let him suffer and the pain meds were not holding him any longer. He died with dignity in our arms. He was a Labrador loved by many, the destroyer of balls, shedder of fur, and champion licker. Run free beautiful boy xxxxx

    It’s been a long time since I visited this forum. I am MAO, mum of Oscar who is now 8 years old. Last week Oscar developed a large mass on his left hip that my vet thought was a haematoma. On Friday he developed swelling in his left hind leg and on Saturday my vet said it was fluid draining from his “organising” haematoma. On Sunday I took him to Pet Emergency and an ultrasound revealed something more sinister and he was kept in overnight and handed over to a specialist vet on Monday. Following a CT scan yesterday I have been told he has an inoperable cancer on his left hip with metasteses in his lungs and multiple enlarged lymph nodes. He had 2 biopsies taken to determin the type of cancer. I am devastated, heartbroken. He is at home now and I don’t know what will come next. My beautiful boy is dying

    I sympathize, for once Perth is not stinking hot, ots only about 32 here today, we have been having 40+ most days last week I finally bit the bullet and entered Mason in his first official obedience trial, the Western Classic, 4 March. Aircon struggling here too, but Oscar went for a swim yesterday in the blow up pool :-) I hope you are OK in the fires - stay safe. Mason will be a star

    I like old fashioned names, my niece must do also - she named her second child Cordelia... How about Arthur or Artier or Gavin, Thomas I like, Nathan, Luke isnt too bad, Gavin is most likely going to be the middle name :D It was my late Pop's name and we were very close. So I'd really love to have my son have a part of him. If not Gavin it will be another family name. Picking names is so hard when you have worked with children for so long :D Babies last name (and mine when I finally get around to changing it) is 3 syllables and ends in son On my list so far are the following Caleb Joshua (I'm not one who usually likes J names as for the reason Lilli star said but I don't mind and have had pleasant experiences with "Joshua's") Samuel Marcus Liam Nathaniel (OH is worried that it is to long with the last name) Connor I like Caleb best from your list I have always liked Liam. It will sound nice with your surname BM although Liam Gavin has got both names ending in the same kind of sound. Ooh it must be hard ! I like Joshua, Jeremy, James and Jack :D ;) ETfix terrible attempt at formatting :0(

    Hi lilli star, she is not broken, Oscar will only run through his clam shell (and drink out of it :D ) - if we put toys in it he dives his head in to get them but will not get in. He will not lie down in it - he probably thinks it is a bath (and he does not particularly like having a bath!!) - they can't both be broken :D
