Oscar 2023

Something you may not know about me, is that as I was writing the book, I had my own difficult dog too. His name was Oscar, and I rescued him when he was 7 years old. He looks a bit like a Maremma, but was apparently a golden retriever X samoyed. He was skin and bone when I got him, condition score 1 as we would say in the vet world. I fed him up and low and behold he stole my heart and I could never give him up. He was initially aggressive towards me when I accidentally frightened him, but it didn't take long for him to trust me. He developed severe separation anxiety, thunderstorm phobias and aggression to unfamliar dogs within the first 2 months of having him. Every time I raised my hand to scratch my head or get something off a shelf, he cowered and slunk away. Clearly an abused dog, I had my work cut out for me! I like to think that I gave him a happy life, and that the second half of his life was far happier than the first half. He made it to a ripe old age of 14 and a half, passing away earlier this year (2023). Oscar was one of the dogs I dedicated this book to, I loved him completely, despite the endless work it took to keep him happy!
