My beloved Oliver

I lost my 17 1/2 yr. old hymilayn - Oliver - yesterday. My heart is broken, he was a beautiful gentle soul, who we loved so very much. He collapsed yesterday, he has had kidney disease for almost a year, but after the collapse I took him right away to the vet, who knows his situation, and she did x-rays and he had congestive heart failure. He was our "baby", and this house revolved around him. I am at a loss, completely devestated. We loved him so.

oh, Sally, I am so very, very sorry! I know this hurts so much! (((hugs))) to you! I know your life will be upside down for awhile but please come back and talk to us as much as you need. We have people here that grieve for months - we understand. I still tear up when I think of my beloved Sam who I lost at 16 1/2 years old. We adopted him at 12 so didn't have him nearly long enough.

Oh Saly...I'm so sorry about your loss of Oliver...:'(
I know how much it hurts, as do others many of us have been where you are right now...
He had a long and wonderful life with people who truly cared about him...and he takes those memories with him, to the Bridge...

I'm so sorry about Oliver. At 17 1/2, he had a very long and full life with you, and I hope you'll take comfort in remembering all the happy years that you had together.
