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!
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.
