    Default RIP Oscar

    Well, as we were starting to get prepared for all of the Thanksgiving festivities we are mourning the loss our 16 year old weenie dog Oscar. Yes, Oscar Mayer...

    He has been having problems for the past 2 weeks or so. Mostly just getting old. Anyway, he was acting like he was having a hard time this morning so we finally decided that it was time to get him to the emergency vet and see about putting him down so he isnt suffering any longer. By the time we got him there, he was gone.

    Luckily he went peacefully. My wife is taking it pretty hard, but we all understand that he is no longer in any pain and he is better off now.

    Man! Chuck I'm sorry to hear about Oscar the weenie dog. I'm sure it is hard after having him around for so long. But you can't make him suffer for your own well being. I'm sure somewhere down the road you will get another companion.

    Ya know when it rains is pours. Thanks for taking the time to share with us buster. Enjoy your holiday and think happy thoughts.

    Sorry for your loss of your close friend on Thanksgiving morning. 16 years with your great friend is very impressive. I think that is worth giving thanks for. May the sorrows gently fade but let the memories last forever. God Bless.

    Chuck I'm sorry for the loss Of your Lil Buddy.They give us so much and ask for so little in return. I hope that memories of better times ease the pain. I know that I too will some day face that challenge and I know it won't be easy.I got a big heart for Kidds and animals. Adios Oscar.

    So sorry to hear of your loss on Thanksgiving. Just remember that no one can take away all the good time and memories that you and your wife share with Oscar.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. I can't imagine how difficult it must be. Living on a farm, I've never kept a dog longer than 5-6 years - they all get run over. It must have been a blessing indeed to enjoy 16 years with Oscar.

    I feel for ya bro. Lost a few myself. It amazes me how attached we become to an animal. And knowing they all gotta go sometime doesn't make it easier when they do. Cherish the memories.
