Sorry to hear that you lost Ollie, jabbur. Hopefully the fond memories you have of him make you forget the pain of today.

I think he knew. I called from work to set up the appointment and when I came home he scooted over to me and licked my hand several times. That just about broke my heart. Ollie was never a licker! That is the only time he has licked me (except to lick food off my fingers) in all his 12 years. These are two of the final pictures we took. One at home and one at the vet's. He was such a sweet tempered dog.

Awww. They know, Jabbur. Ollie loved you, and you will see him again.

And now I'm a mush mess again.

On a happier note, we picked up our new doggie from the Humane Society today! He is some kind of Terrier. So far he's timid, just walking around the house sniffing, getting to know the place. If we walk toward him he runs away. His name was Dusty, but we changed his name to Rusty. I hope he doesn't mind!

Aw, he'll be fine, give him a chance to figure things out and who puts the food down.
