Arrival Story:
Oscar came into my life when his former family could no longer keep him. He'd been listed on Craigslist as urgently needing to be moved, and though I wasn't intending on getting a dog, I found myself replying to the ad for more information. Less than 48 hours later, I met Oscar for the first time. His family had been forced to move suddenly, and their new apartment did not allow pets. He was overweight, and in desperate need of a nail trim, but his adorable attitude led me to bring him home with me. He's stayed glued to my side ever since.

Oh I wish I were an Oscar Mayer weiner..

Saying Goodbye

By Jess, mum to Oscar and Mika

Words cannot describe yesterday. Valentine's day, a day of love, a day of joy, became a day of unending sorrow. Dear Oscar had been deteriorating recently, but we had hoped to get some more good months, maybe even years out of him. It was not to be.

He'd begun barking uncontrollably at night, and when I would try to console him, he had no idea who I was, and would snarl and attempt to attack me. He would only do this at night. Then, the other morning, while he was perfectly lucid, I went to give him a kiss on the head. I've done this thousands of times with no problem, he was a very calm, tame dog. However, this time, with no warning, he launched himself and grabbed my lip.

After the bleeding had stopped and I'd had a talk with my vet, it was agreed to end his suffering.

And so, at 5:15pm CST, Oscar was helped over the rainbow bridge, surrounded by his family.

I will miss him until we meet again.
