So long Opus, may your heaven be filled with cheese.

Posted by:

Most of you know of my elderly old basset Opus, amigo to cafe owners all across Barcelona and all round ace hound. Well, I’m sad to say he passed away earlier this evening, age 15. He went peacefully, his head in my lap, belly filled with his favourite food, Andrew scratching the top of his head.  He was a  brilliant companion, wiggly-waggy friend of cats, and devoted gourmond of cheese, the stinkier the better. We loved him dearly and will miss him terribly.

So long old friend.

Opus, Oct 13, 1996 – Oct 26th, 2011.

    Awww, I’m sorry for your loss, but happy to hear he went in good company of his own will. Sounds like he lived a great life. Rest easy, old boy.

    Thank you Dom, like Ozzie or Herbie he was a huge part of the family for so long, so the wrench is really tough.
