Oliver passed away two months ago today. It brings sadness to think of his passing, but yet, it makes us smile remembering all of the good times and memories he created for us.
The following is a passage from the book “The Old Man’s Boy Grows Older” by Robert Ruark.
“The death of an old dog is comparable in heartache to the death of any person, young or old, and in some respects produces more pain. The dog has been dependent, totally, and has become an extension of the man, closer in companionship than humans and certainly more blind to the master’s faults. The loss of a dog is felt more keenly because a portion of the human dies with the beast, or so it seems to me.”
