He took to family and hill life as just another step,trained easy and never on the lead in all his hill days.He loved the snow and without asking just lifted a leg so i could put his pack on
The pictures are from his home in the Lakes hill and the mountains of Scotland,he completed a round of the Wainwright's and at a guess a hundred or so Munros
"All his sweet and shaggy life,
always near me, never troubling me,
and asking nothing "
"A heart of gold stopped beating,
Two shinning eyes at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
"My sunshine doesn't come from the skies,
It comes from the love in my dogs eyes."
"You're only a dog, old fellow;
a dog, and you've had your day;
But never a friend of all my friends
has been truer than you always"
"Sleeping here, my chin
On your foot--no greater bliss"
"Tis sweet to hear the watch dogs honest bark
Bay deep-mouthed welcome as we draw near home.
'Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
Our coming and look brighter when we come "
"I lie belly up
In the sunshine, happier than
You will ever be "
"I choose, I choose the mountain
With all the stress and strain
Because only by climbing
Can i rise above the plain"
Oscar had been on Tramadol and other pills from Last September,but on Monday 3rd of December,he was in pain and he had to leave us.The hardest thing we've ever had to do,but we held him as he slipped away
Till we meet again good friend
"Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there,i do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.
