    Default Oliver, my world.

    Hi,

    I haven't been on here in quite some time and even find it difficult right now. We lost Oliver on 9/6/16 at the age of 5 1/2. While I know age is just a number, losing him so young has made this all very difficult.
    Oliver was diagnosed with Protein Losing Enteropathy in 2014. With the help of our vet (and consults at 4 veterinary hospitals, 3 internists and 2 liver specialists), Oliver was kept stable and comfortable for a long time.
    In fact, he was so stable that his rapid decline in a span of a few hours was terrible to see. I am still lost without him.

    Before Oliver died (& without knowing it was going to happen), at the urging of his veterinarian, I began writing a book centered around Oliver's life and the lessons I learned through him and because of him.
    While I don't want this post to come off as me plugging a book, I also want people to know how I am honoring Oliver. I'm not done with the book yet (but soon) and my goal is to have it published this year and to donate
    a portion of royalties to the MidAtlantic Bulldog Rescue. I won't stop until these things come to fruition. It is a way to honor Oliver as well as a way to help bulldogs in-need.

    If you'd like to follow along on my journey, I would be forever grateful. And since I don't want this post to become an advertisement, please DM me if you'd like to know where you can watch the journey unfold online.
    Oliver was my world. My entire world. In these last 4 months since he has been gone, I have been so sad and depressed-- but there is a glimmer of light knowing I am going to honor him and all who helped us in his life.
    I know there is another bully in our future but we are going to let the Universe decide when the time is right for us. The time isn't right now. I just can't. I miss Oliver too much still and am still grieving.

    I want to thank all of those reading this, and to those who helped me when I needed it. You guys were so helpful a few years ago when Oliver had TTA surgery.
    xoxo
    Life is always an Adventure with Oliver!

    Sherri -- I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Oliver... he was an amazing and handsome boy who will ALWAYS be with you. I've lost two and believe me, they are always with you.. heart, mind and soul.

    As for your book, you most certainly can post the information here as it is a direct impact to helping a rescue. There is a forum titled 'rescue efforts'... you can start a thread there and those that wish to follow along and donate/purchase the book can.

    Sending you lots of hugs

    I am so very sorry for your loss of sweet Oliver, it does takes us a long time to grief when our babies pass and it took me seven years to be able to have another after losing my pugs.


    Sending you (((hugs))) Oliver was a beautiful boy

    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Thanks for writing - your book sounds not only like a very constructive way of handling all emotions but also like a wonderful way of honouring Oliver and of helping other dogs and humans. Looking forward to reading more about your plans. Hugs from Castor & Co.
