Oscar Buxton 1995 - 2006


After a brief cancer battle, Oscar Buxton, brown pooch of indeterminate lineage and unfathomable cuteness, was relieved of his suffering on 11 March. For the rest of the family, our pain remains and he will be sorely missed like no other.

From his beginnings as a tiny pup with huge feet, he grew into them and then outgrew them. He was a favourite at all of his haunts around Sydney, getting the attention of everyone he came across and outsizing most other dogs around him.

May he continue to bound around in doggy heaven, chasing bigger sticks than we have here.

Dear Ben

We will miss OB too - a gentle giant of a lad - was fun to watch him with little Freddie.

Hope to see you soon.

Lots of love

Susie, Michael & Steffie

PAWS FOR REFLECTION

Consider him who’s passed this way.
Though of doubtful pedigree,
In Cameron Street, he held full sway
As one and all agree.

Like Argus, he loyally patrolled
The precincts of One O Four
He greeted all both young and old
With a bark and friendly paw.

Head to one side - mock innocent,
That expression of “pourquoi”?
(“Why-the-hell-not” more his intent),
With that touch of je n’sais quoi.

He now cavorts in Elysian fields,
Not the earthly parks of yore
The stick that his new master wields
He’ll chase for evermore

So mourn you not for him who’s quit us,
But we who are left behind,
To ponder this dog ubiquitous
True wonder of caniskind.
