Arrow Our Forever Friend "Oliver" RIP

My Forever Friend

I know that it must be different,
now that I am no longer there.

I realize how much I was loved
and how all of you did care.

I know it will be hard at first
when you look around for me.
Expecting to find me in my bed
or beside my favorite tree.

Someday you will begin to see
although it'll take some time,
the happy times you shared with me,
the memories are yours and mine.

I'll remember you, my friends,
and how much you meant to me.

So please don't grieve and don't be sad,
it was just my time to leave.

Oliver may you RIP- May 16, 2002 - Feb. 26, 2011

Thank you to everyone who helped out with the cost for Oliver's autopsy. As a result this is what Sally was able to find out about the loss of her precious boy.
The Vet said today " 95% sure it was a brain aneurysm"

This came across my email and wanted to pass it along for any one who would like to help out.

"As most, if not all of you know, Sally Minton (Mintchip) lost her dear Oliver suddenly this past Sat. She has decided, with encouragement, to have an autopsy done on Olivers body to find out the cause of his death. She is hoping it may help other Hav's in some small way. The only idea the vet has been able to give her is possible poisoning, and she had recently changed food so she is of course very concerned for Comet.

Some of us have decided to help her out with the expenses of the expanded autopsy, on top of the emergency vet care. She is a teacher and I know they aren't the highest paid of careers.
There is absolutely no pressure to do so, my question is, would someone from this group, that is active on the Havanese Forum, make the information available, so no one feels left out if they would like to pitch in? Debbie with Jammies is going to collect the funds via paypal through March 15, then she will send a single check to Sally with a card with all of the doners names.

Debbies email to use for paypal is [email protected]

Thank you,
Beverly Ashley

I am so glad someone is doing this. Losing Oliver like this is just so heartbreaking and if anything can be learned from this, it may help someone else in a similar situation. With my Marley having episodes of weird coughs and choking (not quite sure if it's reverse sneezing or something else), I always worry something more severe could be happening.
Let's keep this thread alive so everyone can participate!

Yes, so very beautiful. He had a very soulful being about him. It is just sad he is gone. He always looked like he smiled in his pictures. I would love to help Sally out with expenses.

What a lovely tribute. And a thoughtful thing to do. Thanks for posting, and for organizing. I will do what I can, and I hope Sally is able to receive the funds she needs for this.
