I put some clips together of Oscar who was the dog i grew up with. The clips are pretty bad quality, but its enough to see what he was like. We adopted him from the RSPCA as a puppy, based on his personality, appearance and vets opinions we have always said he is a Border Collie X Springer Spaniel. He died at the age of 10-11 from cancer. Its nearly been 10 years since Oscar died.
The clips are in order of time, the first ones show him at around 6 months old, and the last one is about a month before he died. In the last clip you can see a bandage covering the tumour on his leg.
