The Gentle Giant that gave of himself.
Just to touch him would calm your soul, always gentle, always kind.
A true example of Gods creation and how to live your life.
Oscar was so gentle and had such a loving way about him. Even with the other dogs, he was patient and non threatning. There is a real emptiness here without him but a real presence of his peace.
to be a star- just different from my plan. At six months of age, I was
told by a veterinarian to put him to sleep as he had hip and elbow
dysplasia. He was crippled by the disease but happy as puppies are. My
comment was no! He may not be a champion but if he is happy and can get
around then, he has a home forever. Well, he was not a champion in the
show ring but he was a champion at listening to the hearts of children.
He was a therapy dog in the elementary schools for 8 years. On one
occasion, a child at school was so scared as she had been mistreated
and sexually abused at home by her father that she would not talk to
the teacher or counselor’s just coward in the corner of the room. She
was given the task of caring for Madison and it wasn’t long before she
confided in Madison telling him the story about what had happened at
home the night before. Madison listen, licked her little face and gave
her the courage to talk.That night, her daddy went to jail. You see
this little girl could have harbored those feelings for the rest of her
life but because a big-hearted fury friend listened, she was able to
get the help she needed. Madison died in April and there is such a void
at TimberKnoll because his body is not here but I know he lives on in
the lives of the others.I know he shared some wisdom about what it is like to
be a big dog and to love and care for those around you big and little.
Landon is from our first breeding with Tess and Hudson. On a snowy day in December came seven of the most beautiful and healthy pups anyone could dream of. They were born under the Christmas tree, as Tess would not use the whelping box. In that bunch with mom under the tree a little girl with a yellow ribbon stood out as if to say here I am. Landon started her show career at the SENC Regional Supported Entry taking First place in the 12-18 month class on Friday and Saturday. On Sunday, she took First, Winners and Best of Winners, which was a five point major. Landon became a Champion in June 2005.
Landon had her first litter on November 16, 2006 and was a fabulous mom from the start. She loved those babies and the time watching her love and teach them was very special. However, as they left for their new homes, I’m sure I cried more than she did. Landon is also Harrison's mom.
We are very proud of her; she loves life and fishing with Oscar. She will walk the shore endlessly looking for a fish and when she catches one, she enjoys eating it. Now, she has gone on to be with her friends. I'm sure Hudson, Tess and Oscar were glad to see her and now they are all fishing again together.
