Farewell Tribute To Oliver


Recommended Posts

It's the little things about the biggest dog in our home that hit me after he was gone.

One less food bowl to fill. Having the bathroom to myself without him demanding ear scritches. Having to carry extra bags on our walks cuz by gosh that boy loved to poop on a walk. Touching his nose to his Storm Defender cape to tell me a bad one was coming and to please put it on me Mom - now! The dog beds lie flat without him there to fluff them all up.

And now he's gone. Free from pain. In his last hours it was probably a stroke that got him.

My boy, Oliver. To his daddy, Sir Oliver Begs a lot. To Gracie and Pudge, big brother.

I am typing through tears as I look at his precious face and read your loving tribute. There are no words, so I will borrow this:


"Goodnight Sweet Prince. And flights of Angels sing thee to thy rest" - William Shakespeare

Run free with the other puppy angels.

It's always the emptyness that's the hardest to see.

Oh Ducky! :cry1 :cry1 I am still trying to absorb that he is gone, so I can only imagine how you feel.


I completely understand the little things with the biggest dog.


Thank you so much for sharing your Oliver with all of here at GT. It makes me smile to think perhaps he and Lori Ann are having a nesting contest up there :)


Sending lots of gentle Kansas hugs your way, and may God hold your aching hearts in his hands :grouphug :grouphug :grouphug :grouphug :grouphug
