Memories of Ozzie

DEATH LEAVES A HEARTACHE NO ONE CAN HEAL....
LOVE LEAVES A MEMORY NO ONE CAN STEAL.

February 28, 2008 - December 4, 2016

On May 1, 2008 we went to a local shelter looking for a new addition to our family.
There he was, this 12 week old scared, nervous, gorgeous, little golden retriever/pit bull mix puppy. Melani, our daughter, was with us and said can we PLEASE take this little guy home? We were told the puppy was returned to the shelter twice because he wasn't "active enough". That was not a concern for us. We said yes and so was the beginning of the life of Ozzie Weaver. That was the best choice we ever made. Ozzie became the love of our lives. He was such a good boy, never any trouble. He bonded instantly with our black lab, Ziggy, who was 4 at the time. Ozzie stuck to Ziggy like glue. Wherever Ziggy was Ozzie was, either playing, eating, sleeping or standing on Ziggy's back to see over the fence a little better. Ozzie lived the life of a king, as he well deserved. We referred to Ozzie as our special needs boy. He was always a little nervous and anxious. Deathly afraid of wind and thunderstorms, we gave him some Xanex, which was prescribed to him by the vet to calm him down. It didn't work too well but it helped a little. We knew how to care for him. He had such a sad look on his face but he was a happy boy. He loved squeaky balls and his purple fish. Going for walks with his dad in the park was always a treat. He loved his big fenced in yard and digging holes and eating dirt. He was a picky eater but loved his treats and nylabones. His favorite spot was lying on the back of the couch like a cat.

In June of this year we lost our beloved 11 year old Ziggy to cushing's disease. We were all devastated, especially Ozzie.
I truly believe that depression led to the diagnosis of hemangiosarcoma in November for Ozzie. We were in shock. He was only 8. The cancer spread so quickly. We expected to have him many many more years. We took great care of our boy but yesterday we had to make the extremely difficult decision to give him an early Christmas gift and end his pain. His poor little body just couldn't take the pain any longer. He enjoyed his treats until he took his last breath. We love him so much. Our home will never be the same. His 1 brother and 3 sisters cannot understand why Ozzie is not home anymore.

He was our sweet angel on earth and now he is our sweet angel in heaven.
We will see him very soon. I'm counting on that. Until then, take care "Pozzie" and remember how much you are loved.

Daddy, Mum, Melani, Randi, Erin, Roxie, Joe, Jazzy, Izzie and all the family.


"THE VERY BEST DOG OF ALL"

Loving and loyal,
A friend through and through,
How in the world can I
live life without you?

I've known you since you
Were just a scrappy pup,
Fighting to survive,
And you never gave up.

I watched you grow into a
beautiful canine friend.
Back in those days,
I could not imagine this end.

But now it's all over,
And you're truly gone.
Somehow I'll find a way
To try to carry on.

I'll keep your precious photo
hung up on my wall,
And I'll always remember you
As "the very best dog of all."

My sweet Pozzie. I miss you so much. This heartache is going to be around for a very long time. Everywhere I look I am reminded of you. You were such a huge part of our home. I'm glad you are with Ziggy and the whole gang though. They will take care of you until we are together again. You are my sweet angel.
Love, Mum

Merry Christmas Pozzie! How are you? Well I hope. You were a very sick little boy. I know you are pain free now and running wild. Our holidays are not happy this year. Never in a million years did we think both you and Ziggy would be gone this year. We miss you sooooooooo much. Have a great day with Ziggy, Charly, Pud and Zoe. You are my sweet angels.

Hi Sweet Angel. Last night Daddy and I attended the Candlelight Memorial Service for you at Animal Friends. It was beautiful and very emotional. It was good to talk with others in the same situation as we are. You have no idea how much we love you and miss you. Our hearts are broken Poz. You will always be my sweet Angel.
Love, Mum

February 6, 2017
Hi Pozzie. I still cannot believe you are at the Rainbow Bridge. I knew I loved you, but I didn't realize how much until you left me. The cancer that took you away from me was just horrible. You were so sick and it wasn't fair. You didn't deserve that. I miss you more than you could ever know. You are my sweet special angel.
Love, Mum

February 14, 2017
Hi Angel. Even though it's Valentine's Day, I cannot seem to remove the Christmas song and the stocking from your memorial. I guess I'll know when the time is right. I miss you soooooooooooo much.
You are my sweet angel.
Love, Mum

February 28, 2017
Oh my sweet Pozzie. What can I say, other than I miss you more than you will ever know. You would have been 9 years old today. I thought you were going to be with us for a lot longer. Have a Happy Birthday and enjoy your day with Ziggy and the gang. You are and always will be my sweet angel.
Love, Mum

Hi Angel. Zay and I were looking through all the photo albums today. You had such a good life. I am so sorry it was cut so short. I had tears in my eyes and smiles on my face looking at your pics. I miss you so much. My heart still aches for you. I will never get over losing you. You are my sweet angel.
Love, Mum

Happy Birthday Oz. You would have been 11 today. The last 3 years have been pretty bad for me. I have been haunted by your passing and the fact that you were so sick. It happened so quickly and so severely.
You didn't deserve that cancer. But I know you are with Ziggy, Zoe, Pud and Charly and that should make you very happy. Mel says Happy Birthday and she loves you. I miss and love you so much.

You are my sweet angel.
