Over the Rainbow Bridge

March 24, 2011


Our first “baby”, Gscrk Olivia de la Rusee (AKA Ollie), crossed the rainbow bridge on Feb 1st.  After several months of almost weekly visits to the emergency vet/cardiologist at Carolinas Veterinary Clinic (thank you Dr. Sanger!), we decided it was time to let her go.  It was by far the hardest thing I’ve had to deal with.  Ollie provided Kirk and I (and to a lesser extent, Zoe and Cole) nine wonderful love-filled years.  Ollie, we hope you have lots of blankets to snuggle in, lots of bunnies to chase, and lots of people to give PBGV hugs to.  Till we meet again…

Here’s a little slideshow of Ollie through the years.  Sorry about the quality of some of the pictures; they were taken pre-digital camera.

    As good a granddog as we could have hoped for. It would be really great if she gets to meet and play with Cody over the Rainbow Bridge!

    I had forgotten how dark her markings were as a young dog. Very sweet tribute and took me down memory lane. I feel confident we see all our pets in heaven. 🙂
