Facebook… Olivia… continued…

Continued from 9/1/12

Sweet Olivia... it had to happen eventually... almost blind and almost deaf, she was an inspiration to those who knew her. She brought a sense of calmness to my house with her ever positive attitude. Even when a stroke took away her ability to walk and to think clearly, she always seemed to have a smile on her face when she was comfortably positioned on the couch. The signs were clearly there but it became instantly obvious to me yesterday when I returned home that last night would be her final night. She is now with Ari, Teddy and Kobie who I'm sure were there to help her along in her journey. It truly is the end of a generation of dogs who chose to call my house home. RIP Sweet Olivia....

Laurel Stone What a wonderful outpouring of support to have when I turned my computer on this morning... Rod.. you were one of Olivia's favorite people and I know when you stopped by she thought it was to see only her... Lisa H. - I remember bringing Olivia to your grooming shop right after I picked her up from the rescue and you said: "Laurel, I think she is the prettiest dog you have!".... Alan... it was rather sudden... I think she could have hung around for another year the way she was few weeks ago...

Laurel Stone I just looked back and realized that Olivia came to me 11 years ago Monday (9-10-01) and was 2 years 3 months old. She had been turned over to WI German Shepherd Rescue (Cindy Filz), placed twice before me and was returned... how fortunate I was to have been at the right place at the right time!

Laurel Stone Thank you all... Jody... Olivia was a very sweet girl for sure! Shari... no new ones coming. My goal was to have 2 dogs and that's where I'm at now.. Brita(6) and Jake (3) are more than enough. I'll now have time to focus on them and their training... they deserve that. Brita's watched me say goodbye to Tori, Teddy, Ari, Kobie and Olivia in the last 3.5 years and it's her turn to get some attention. :)

To My Sweet Olivia

I know not what your life was like before you came to me
But this I know and it’s a fact that it was meant to be.
I knew before I met you that you were surely mine
And when you came to greet me, I knew it was the time.
