Sad heart....................

Tonight I lost my Otie, who survived surgery four weeks ago and gave me more time to love him.  He passed very peacefully and saved me from having to make the decision to let him go.  He was a sweet boy who saved me!  We had a nice walk tonight, visited with some neighbors, and then he went into distress and while on the way to the emergency vet he left me.  I knew this day was eventually coming and I don't regret anything in the past month, and relish that I had more time with him.

I will miss him, as we all have missed our babies that left us.  He filled a real void in my life when I REALLY needed it.  As someone once said to me, regarding dogs in general, "The beginning is hard, the end is hard, but the middle is magical".

Thank you, Otie, for many magical years.  You made my life so much richer.

I am so sorry to hear this.

He was a beautiful boy. I can see in his eyes how much love he had to give. It's clear he wanted to spend a little more time with you. You'll be in my thoughts.

thanks Stephanie!

I hated seeing the rainbow knowing that another good friend Lost their Baby. He had the best mommy he could of ever had. I'm sorry he went to the bridge. He now running free. Gumbo my rescue bullie and my baby Shiloh are there waiting to tell him come on you belong over here with the rest of us from BDW. So sorry my prayers are being said for you and your family. Sad day for all of us.

Thanks for the encouraging phrase

I am so sorry for your loss. I also lost my 9 1/2 year old Annie in June. We have a new puppy and it has been hard. I wondered if I made the right decision. I had tears in my eyes and felt like you were speaking to me when you said " The beginning  and end is hard but the middle is magical." Thanks, I needed to hear that. It is easy to forget how hard it was with a new puppy but how rewarding it will be later. Thanks aagin.
