Over the past couple of weeks our dachshund Oscar had began to feel his age. His little legs no longer took him far, his eye sight began to go, in fact no longer the young man he once was. At 16, Oscar’s quality of life had become almost nil very quickly – a matter of days.
Late on Sunday evening – we knew that he no longer had any fight left within and had to call out the vet.
It’s a sad time for us all, especially my mum – we often described Oscar as her shadow – where ever she was – he would not be far away.
For the younger members of our family, it’s the first time they have been touched by death, that too is sad to see.
We are comforted in the thoughts that he had a long and happy life and is no longer tormented by his ‘old age’.
Thanks to those who have written a PM to ask how he was and for your support xx
