Sweet Dreams, Oliver

Postby SherriA » Sat May 24, 2014 7:33 am

Oliver went to the rainbow bridge this morning, with a little help from his vet. I already had plans to call her today to talk about it, but he woke me up having a seizure - the worst one he's had - and that was enough. He couldn't see, couldn't settle, and was so scared afterwards.

I miss my old boy so much already. He was stubborn and opinionated, but he was also loving and sweet. My heart is broken in pieces, but I know it was time. Thank you all for loving him with me.

Rest easy, Oliver.

Oh Sherri. I'm so, so sorry. My heart is just breaking for you. For some strange reason I felt the pull to come check ODO just now, and I see this. Many, many hugs to you. No matter how much you try to prepare yourself it's always so hard... and no matter how much time we have with them it's never going to be long enough.

Oh Sherri -- oh my goodness. I am so very sorry and so sad for you. Big hugs from all of the Hooligans and from me. Oliver, you have NO idea how much you will be missed.

Sherri, I am so very sorry. Oliver has been an integral part of ODO and he takes a little piece of all our hearts with him, and a huge chunk of yours. Sweet dreams, Oliver. Gentle hugs, Sherri.

I'm so very, very sorry. He was a special guy who got extra special golden years because of you. I'm sure he leaves an enormous hole. :(

Sherri, I'm so very sorry for your loss. Rest easy, Oliver, and may you find endless treats to sniff out at the bridge.

Oh Sherri, I'm typing through tears. I know there are no words to make this easier. Oliver is easy and at peace now - he and Jack are running and playing like puppies together. Or maybe just cuddling together? I know that has to be a comfort to you, but we would always rather have them here rather than there. You are in my prayers.

Oh, Sherri. :( My heart hurts for you. Like Laura said, it's never enough time with them. I'm so sorry for your loss. Oliver was such a special guy, both of you so blessed to have shared your lives together. You're in my thoughts now and in the days ahead.

Run free, sweet Oliver. You'll be missed.

I wish I had words to ease your pain. Oliver was an incredible dog and what you two shared was so special and inspiring to me. Please know how loved you and Oliver are and that I am always here for a chat or a good cry.

Ah, no. Sweet, sweet Beagle boy. I am glad we got to share in those golden years he had because of your love and strength. Wishing him lovely dreams of the happiness he knew with you and Jack. Sorry for the loss of a stellar companion, Sherri.

Oliver was an ODO-OG. Loved that little beagle. Such a personality. I'm so very sorry Sherri...big beagle hugs from Bodie and me. Here's to a life well lived and a very adored, sweet boy.
