Thanks for remembering, Tami, been thinking about the little guy a lot this week.

Used to consider myself a "Tuff Guy" years ago, and couldn't imagine bawling like a little kid, ever - much less in public. But, I did, big time at the Doc's office the day Otis left us. My eyes still get moist whenever I go past his Doc's office, and remember my little guy and that sad day.

Thanks again.

Wow - it has really been two years? Seems like yesterday. Otis was one of a kind!

Sending hugs to you Bill. Otis was sure one of a kind. He is missed by all.

Isn't this interesting? I get all teary-eyed when I stop into the vets office as well - even if to just pick up dog food or other meds....and Sydney left us at home - not at the vet's office...yet I still get all choked up.

I too hope Sonny hears all of your favorite O-stories.

It is hard... kinda makes you want to change vets.

I saw a beautiful rainbow the other night, and thought of Otis, Sparky, and all the other dogs who are up there at the Bridge playing, never forgotten.

Bill - Sorry we missed the anniversary of Otis's passing. I could have sworn I put a reminder in my calendar, apparently I didn't.

I know the freshness of Sonny's passing probably doesn't help things - but I do hope you have wonderful memories of Otis this month (and always).

Tami

Thanks for remembering, Tami. I visit with the little guy every morning when I fire up my computer. Have a great pic of him as a screensaver and assure him he's gone to a different place, but he's not forgotten. Still get "misty" when I think of him, especially the last day he was here.

Then, so Sonny doesn't feel slighted, I visit with him for a short time. Crazy, huh?
