In Memoriam: Oscar

Oscar (1)

January 27, 2016 – IN MEMORY: It is with a heavy heart that we report that, on November 9th, Cara and Jason lost their beloved OSCAR to kidney disease at the age of 13. Many of you probably remember Oscar as the Dalmatian/Basset “bassmatian” who took the Best Beg prize a few years in a row at the annual Calgary Basset Waddle.

Oscar was one of 11 puppies who were all famously named after the Muppets. While Oscar was called “the grouch” (who really likes to share? C’mon!), he was the most affectionate, happiest dog a person could ask for. Oscar lived for cuddles and snuggles and was best known for stealing the blankets while watching tv with his family. He was laid back, incredibly loyal, and never strayed too far from his mommy. Although, he was content enough with stealing his dad Jason’s pillow at night. Oscar’s favorite food was pizza and he loved wearing his jacket, even when it wasn’t cold (who wouldn’t!).

Friends of the family say that Oscar lived a life that any dog would have dreamed of – only ever having one owner, being spoiled rotten, and was very loved. Oscar is survived by his two “brothers” – Oakley, a purebred basset who knew Oscar since Oscar was 4 (and who was his best friend until the end) and his Great Dane brother Beans.

And while Oscar may have had the spots and the bark of a Dalmatian, all of his friends at the Calgary Basset Rescue know he was truly a basset hound at heart. Our condolences go out to his family for their loss. Please click this link to share your own best wishes.
