I'm so sorry to hear that sad news. I hope you'll be comforted by the lovely memories you have of Otis and knowing you did all you possibly could for him.

My heart is on fire...I have no words. We have all been together for so long....Otis was "ours"....

So glad you were with him....so sad he is no longer physically by your side...

My heart just sank when I saw your post. I am so very sorry for the loss of your buddy Otis. We all know what you boy meant to you.

I am going through the same with Cleo and I dread that day will also come for her.

Sending you a big virtual hug. Run pain free Otis

Oh Bill! The loss of a best friend like Otis has to hit hard. They love us unconditionally and that isn't something easy to lose. I am praying for comfort and peace in this time of loss. I am so sorry.

Otis passed away peacefully in his dad's loving arms at 5:30 CDT today.

This battle was one we couldn't win. Thanks to all of you, it wasn't diabetes which claimed Otis, but congestive heart failure.

I'll fill you in with the details in the next few days. Right now, I'm devastated by the loss of my best friend.

Again, thanks to all!
So sorry for your loss...he knew how loved he was...may he run free know...

hi Bill, I thought about you a lot today. I went to a gathering and the only dog there was a pug.

what a spirit this little guy was. made me think of the photos in your album of Otis when he was a pup. while I was watching this little guy today and starting to know and care for him in the short time I was with him brought home how difficult it is when you lose the larger then life personality dogs as I think O was.

I know he was faltering towards the end, but am sure he still had a very large presence.

Post when you feel up to it, just wanted you to know you, O and the.....larger then life pain that you are feeling now were on my mind today.

Even though I have only just joined this group. please allow me to say how sorry I am for the loss of your little guy. Any time one of our furkids passes over the Bridge, it tears a hole in our heart. Sending healing to you.
