Oscar died in Australia today. He was 11 years old and was taken by a tick. I'm going back to Aus in a few weeks and hadn't realised how much I was looking forward to seeing Os again. He'll be terribly missed.

Os we all loved you dearly. RIP.

I feel your pain. The loss of a pet is devastating.

I read 2 great dog books over Christmas - one by Aussie/Kiwi journalist Frank Robson called "Lucky for Me: Adventures with a seafaring, cat-hating, tree-climbing dog" and "Marley and Me: Life & Love with the World's Worst Dog" by American John Grogan.

At my feet as I write this is a bigger version of Oscar in the form of a Labradoodle called Genevieve. She belongs to a work colleague but has decided that I am part of her pack.

Nothing beats the love and loyalty of a dog - it's unwavering and constant.

RIP Oscar.
