Oliver by Sandra Myers / Mommy

Several years ago, back in June of 1994, we got Oliver when he was about 11 weeks old. I had a really hard time trying to find a name that would fit him, but when I thought of Oliver, I knew I had the right name picked out for him. It didn’t take him long to know his name.
Over the years that I had him, he brought a lot of love and happiness to this family. There were times when I would open the fridge door and he was standing right there to see what all I had in there.He loved to snoop when it came to food.

On occasion, I would have to take him to the groomers to get a hair cut, and it seemed like it did something to his ego. But, after a while, he got use to it. He would always lay down with his back feet spread out behind him. And he loved going out in the front yard when ever he could.

I think when he was about 3 years old, I hooked him up with a beauty of a dog. Daphne, of course as I wanted them to have kids. He and Daph gave us 7 beautiful puppies. We gave 5 away and kept 2.

As Oliver got older, he was really having a hard time getting around. He would always fall each time he got up. I knew at some point I was going to have to make the decision of having him put to sleep as I didn’t want him suffering like this. He didn’t deserve it. Something happened out in the backyard one day, and as I was helping him to the back porch, he collapsed. He looked at me as it if to say, it’s time mom. I can’t go any further. So, I made the decision of having him put to sleep that day. Making a decision like that is never easy as they become a part of our lives. But, I know in my heart that it was the right thing to do. Oliver, always know that I love you, as you came into my life at a time when I needed you the most. You brought us such happiness over the years, and you gave us two beautiful babies for us to raise and to love. Since you have passed on, I had to have Frisbie, your youngest daughter put to sleep because of Cancer.

It hurt, but in my heart, it was the right thing to do. I truly believe that the two of you are together right now, without any sickness or cancer, running and playing together. Always know that I love you and will see you and your daughter again one day.


I love you,
Sandra Myers
