Oz update !

Oz continues to improve :) I am still keeping him very quiet and rested.. tomorrow i will attempt a very short walk so Oz can get out and smell the flowers :) He has a great appetite, playing with his toys, sleeping soundly, outside duties look great ;) , no vomitting, or panting... This is all great news! I pray that he has dodged this bullet and we have more quality time together! I pray pray pray! Sadly his cancer is back so he will be handled with extra special care to ensure he has quality of life until... My heart is shattered but I remain strong and optimistic for my best friend, i owe him all the best and all the love i can give... life is so short and i wish we never had to say goodbye... I am the worst and don't know how i will ever deal with not having oz in my life.....

    It's a strange thing, grief. I'd like to say that there are millions of people out there who share your pain, but I'd be misleading. You alone have earned the love and benefit of life with Oz, and you alone will bear that loss. Perhaps you will be comforted to know that there are millions of us, each with our own loss, who understand what you are going through... but it doesn't really change yours. :( As one of those people, I can tell you it gets better. It never goes away, but eventually takes on a different perspective. Eventually, most of the sadness burns away, and you are left with a warm, shining memory of your times together that is stronger than steel and will remain with you all of your days. You'll survive because of that steel; that you can count on. I hope the remainder of your time together is pure. I'm positive this is advice you already have taken to heart, but make the most of it. No matter how long it is, it always goes by too fast. Thank you, so much, for sharing your story with me. Your dedication is a credit to the kind of spirit Oz has. Give the guy an extra pat today, from a stranger. Wishing you the best...

  4. what a beautiful website this is.... OZ is very fortunate to have a loving family like you, the love a rottweiler can give is amazing.I lost my best buddy DAMIAN a ten year old rottweiler on august 13th of this year from cancer. it has been the hardest 2 weeks of my life. when i saw your website and how much love you have given and continye to give your angel it made me smile for the first time in two weeks. when i say goodnight to my angel damian tonight, i will say a prayer for your angel oz.
