Tonight we walked in the house and found him in the entryway pass away. Vinny must have wanted him. Now our hearts are broken all over again. We will miss our wise old man. We were afraid we were going to have to make the hard decision to put him to sleep this week but he did it for us. We love you Ozzie with all our hearts. You were a great dog and will be missed so very much. Rest in peace my precious dog.
Today we continue our life without our precious Vinny. The last four days have been tough for the little guy. No matter what we did, IV fluids in his back, pain medication, he wasn't getting better. Yesterday morning I woke up to find his bodily functions were no longer working. I knew then we had to help him to the bridge. It was the hardest decision we ever had to make but I know it was the right one.
Joe and I were there at the end with him. Joe was expecting him to jump up and down and want to go home like he always did. This time he was brought to us in a towel. He took turns looking at us as we loved him up.
I know Sweetie and all the pups that have passed were there waiting for him at the bridge. He is pain free and chasing squirrels and I'm sure he has a new den ob sin.
Even though he's been ill since 2006 we never felt he was burden. We gladly did whatever we had to do to keep him well and comfortable. He will be missed so very much.
Thank you all for the rosettes, gifts, kind words and prayers. You all are helping us during this awful time to make it a little bit easier to bare.
I caught it, I caught it! OK, I bobbled a little, but finally I got the footbal! So i threw it to you and here's what you do next. Leave me a bone on my page first. Then Tell me 5 naughty things you have done in the past. Then pick five pals and send them the same message , but be sure to tell them to leave you a bone on your page ok!
My naughty things:
1. I wake up my mudder at 3:00 a.m. to put me on the bed!
2. I lifted my leg and peed in the hallway just because I wanted to.
3. I refused to eat my dog food unless I get a treat first.
4. I shed all over my mudder's black pants.
5. I sniff poo I found outside on my walk and would ignore my mudder when she called me away.
