Yesterday was National Pet Memorial Day. I read many wonderful tributes to dogs and cats that are no longer with us. Brianna Noelle sent me these photos of Oliver, a dog who had a rough start, but with a second chance, he became a therapy dog and helped make so many lives brighter.
The geriatric population adored him! Some with no strength to live any longer Oliver would make them smile and get up out of bed! He was such a motivator to all of them! He was their not so little mascot!
Oliver has been a part of so many people’s lives and will continue to be! For the past few months Oliver has been suffering from hip displaysia and spine issues. Unfortunately, big dogs often suffer from these issues. It was his time to be in a better place. Rest in peace Oliver. You will be missed very much!”
If someone you know has recently lost a pet and you are struggling with what to say or do, please take a few moments to read “What Do I Say When Words Fall Short.”
