Diving for rose petals

For all you dog lovers, a short, moving post here from Lady Fi.

Lady Fi

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!
