Gus and I met Oscar and Otis a while ago.  We even wrote about visiting with them where they lived and walking with them in a park.
Otis and Oscar and their Guardians

We haven't seen Oscar in a long time, but we did walk with Otis not too long ago. We were having such a good time, we didn't realize Oscar wasn't walking with us.

Then we found out why.

Guardian told us he got very, very, very sick one day.  He fell down and couldn't get up.  His body started jerking around and he never walked again.  Turns out he had something called PDE.  Guardian says it is a terrible, awful, dreadful disease that only pugs get.  There is no cure and really no medicine that helps for long.

Well, even though he's no longer with us, we want to remember him.

He was a huge--like 30 pounds. All muscle not fat. He loved to barrel into his buddy Otis, and then he thought Gus and I were just like Otis and he tried it on me. Well, I'm half his number of pounds, but I told him in no uncertain terms that he could NOT do that.  He was a very respectful pug and never again played rough with me.
Guess which one is Oscar? (Hint: BIG)
He loved fun and always looked for the fun side of life.  Maybe he was a bit goofy, but that's just what some pugs are like. He loved to take walks with Otis and us in a park.

Oscar's Ready for FUN!

We miss you Oscar. We want to remember you.  We want the world to remember you.
Please remember Oscar forever...He was a special friend.

Farewell good pug.
