12 years ago, my wife and I bought a house. A few months later, my wife came home with two puppies (dachshound-beagle mixes ... 'hot dogs with feet', as I like to say). We named them Oscar and Athena.

This morning, Oscar quietly passed away. He will be missed.

There is a road, no simple highway, between the dawn and the dark of night, and if you go no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone. Ripple in still water, when there is no pebble tossed, nor wind to blow.

To seek the sacred river Alph, to walk the caves of ice, to break my fast on honey dew and drink the milk of paradise... I had heard the whispered tales of immortality, the deepest mystery, from an ancient book I took a clue.

Sorry to hear that. In a good home, pets are definitely part of the family.

Aww man, that's tough, Mike. I hope your fond memories will soon out weight the feeling of loss.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

I have been surrounded by passing pets this week. (None of them mine.) My sincere condolences.

Dogs are not our whole lives, but they make our whole.

Sorry for your loss. It sounds like you gave Oscar a great life.

Sorry for your loss.

I've lost too many pets. People without pets often scoff at the impact of the loss of one has on us, but they don't truly understand the love and friendship that comes from the relationship. Your life is richer for having had Oscar in your life and is yet smaller for his loss. Hugs and healing thoughts to you and yours.

I'm sorry for your loss. My dog is also named Oscar, so this hits a little close to home.
