Osmosis Roy Blackshire, known as Oz or Ozzie, was born on Halloween and celebrated his 21st birthday last week (aged three in dog years).

The pooch, who lives with his owner Jason Blackshire, supports West Ham and enjoys watching women’s beach volleyball, according to Jason.

Jason said: “His favourite food is food.

“He’s very friendly but he doesn’t like Henry the black pug who lives out the back.

“He loves walks down the woods as he loves to chase the squirrels but he never catches them.

“Oz likes the horses but we don’t let him gamble anymore after he bet two boxes of Bonios on a dud.

“There are two cats that like to come into the garden and wind him up.”

Oz is also an expert at finding lost tennis balls and enjoys going to his local pub as he has a passion for peanuts and Guinness.

Jason added: “His favourite TV show is Paul O’Grady dog rescue thingy.

“He does spend a lot if time watching TV.”
