Goodbye Oliver Boy, Old Timer

Oliver

 

Oliver is gone. He died Friday.

Nancy and I are heart-broken.

I echo her feelings as she wr0te about Oliver here

I am sad, very sad.  But in my heart I know it was best; he was in pain and no longer is; he’s in dog heaven with the rest of our other dogs.

We love you Oliver – good-bye from Sedona, Derby and Sofi; Sofi misses sharing a dog bed with you!

I miss you terribly already!

and she wakes up at night thinking of our old pal that is gone.

It’s 3 a.m. Costa Rica time.  I woke up with tears running down my cheeks.  I guess that would be called “crying in your sleep”.

I’ll give myself till mid-day and then I have to get a grip…..I will start remembering the good, fun, happy times we had with Oliver.

Whenever I was gone, he would greet me so happily, yes, with a big grin on his face and stand up against my legs and we would hug. I can’t believe I’ll never get a wide-open mouthed smile again or a hug from him.  But I’m already beginning to see the happiness he gave me.

I’ve composed more than one blog post while lying awake, but I just can’t bring myself to write my thoughts out yet.

My eyes get to teary.

Bye Oliver. We’re thinking of you a lot.

  1. Thinking of you and sending comforting thoughts your way. I’ve had those “special pets” as well and I know what you’re going through. I gave my condolences to your lady via her blog as well.
