Oliver My Best Buddy In The World

I'm so sorry. We are so lucky to be blessed with the company of a companion who expresses pure love whenever we are with them, for however short or long a time that may be.

Only people with pets can really understand how devastating it is to lose a friend/family.

Our pets are pushing 15 years old, one of them was the reason we had an outdoor wedding because we wanted her to walk down the aisle. I know my Missy only has a few years at best.

I am sorry for your loss. My wife will be crying when she reads this.

I can't add much to what other have said. But we understand the loss. And it may help just a bit to know others care!

Best wishes!

Steve, I am sorry for your loss of Oliver. All of us who have and love our furry babies will understand and share your grief. Each one has a unique personality and a special place in our hearts, asking so little of us and giving unconditional love.

Here is a picture of him just a little over a week ago on that trip. He loved to be on the bed and watch the world go by out the front windows. I was allowed as a "guest" in "his" bed I sure hope they have Airstreams in heaven because he loved his so much her on earth. Happy travels my dear sweet friend.
I am so sorry centennialman, I cannot even begin to imagine your grief and pain. I will hold you in my thoughts and prayers.

I want to thank you for the heads up on this killer of dogs. I am very glad I have a health plan for my Turbo.

Steve, I am so sorry for your loss. It is never easy but does get better, 7 time will help to heal.

2 weeks after out maiden voyage trip to SD this winter, we lost our Gracie.
Six and a half years ago we found Gracie literally running along I-5. N of Salem. She was one half of the velcro, my wife was the other.

She made the trip to SD in her diapers and in my wife's lap....2500 miles and a real trooper. Now I know why my wife stumbled on the 20 a year ahead of our schedule, when we bought it a week later not even having a TV to bring it home and why we decided on SD for the maiden (where my wife and I met). It was all part Gracie's master plan. We were there to keep her company.

Last week we adopted a 4 mo old pup...Rooney (as in Andy....check the brows). The love and friendship cycle begins new.

She is a real sweetheart and I still find myself calling her Gracie. Like Oliver they are our best friends and much much more. My wife mentioned that in her lifetime Rooney is her 14th dog. I think her heart is pure dog by now and a whole lotta good dogs in the mix. Life doesn't get any better.

Maybe this story that I saved will help. This was published the day after Gracie died. Another sign...all part of her plan

be well

Hi, so sorry to hear about your loss of Oliver, We lost our Dusty on Father's day. We catch ourselves talking about all of the good times we shared with Dusty. So sad to lose a pet.

Thanks to all of you Airstream friends for your warm thoughts. Oliver will be so missed. We lost his father, Vegas, who came to live with us in retirement just a week and half before Oliver passed. It's been a rough couple of weeks. I will have fond memories of Oliver in the two Airstreams I have owned and will welcome a new little buddy to share in the excitement somewhere down the road. In the meantime, love your furry buddies and share in their excitement of travel. Life is short.

Even to each other. The big brownish male is the alpha. The white one is one of the latest rescues.
