I am sitting here in shock. Otis is gone. I cant believe I am typing those words.


We went to the Vet this a.m as he had pain...the Vet thought it was his back.


He deteriorated later today. He had two episodes like seizures and couldnt move.


Three wonderful friends helped him to my truck and went with me to the E.R. Vet.


It was finally determined that he was bleeding into his abdomen, probably from hemangiosarcoma.


He was in shock.


They brought him in, his eyes were glazed, my friends and I held him and told him what a wonderful

boy he was and I told the Vet it was time. He knew we were there, his tail wagged just a little and I really believe he smiled.


I am devastated. The tears wont stop. If I stop writing I will feel all the pain. This happened so quickly...I dont feel prepared. I hope I did not drag out his suffering today. Looking back, over the course of today,

I can see now that he was getting worse....I couldn't see it before.


I want to do a remembrance for Otis....but I cant right now.


He was my best boy


He was my friend


He was a perfect soul.


I miss him so terribly.


Oh Otis, I hope you are with Dewey at the Bridge......

I'm so very sorry! I know the terrible loss you are feeling and there are just no words that will help at this very sad time. Otis knew how much you loved him and he wouldn't want you to be sad. Godspeed Otis, send your Mom a sign that you made it to the bridge. :f_red

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

Of all the dogs on GT that are George's "friends," the one I really wanted to reach out and squeeze was Otis with his ginormous paws. How heartbreaking. I know how you must feel..


I wish I could help.

My heart sank when I saw Otis' name under remembrance. I am so sorry.


Please take comfort in knowing that Otis had a wonderful life, a loving family and a forever home. You made him very happy.


May God bless you and keep you, until you are reunited with your precious boy again.
