Our beloved Oscar crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. He was suffering from various health issues, as well as canine dementia. It was a very difficult decision to bring him to the vet to be euthanized. There wasn’t a dry eye in the treatment room. My daughters especially took it hard, him being the only pet they ever had. He was doing well health wise up to about eight months ago. He lived to 15 years and two months. 5-16-05 to 7-17-20.
I will forever miss our long walks together. When I was ill, I swear he sensed it and would never leave being next to me in bed. It was something he usually didn’t do.
It will feel strange to wake up tomorrow and not hear his nails clicking on the hardwood floor. I put his food dishes away, and his favorite bed in our garage. I’m welling up in tears as I write this. I sincerely hope when my time comes we will be reunited again.
I will always love you Oscar deep in my heart. Rest In Peace. You were the best friend that I ever had.
