Today Oliver left this world. As many of you know he was diagnosed with cancer in the summer for which he received a hind limb amputation and chemotherapy. He had an amazing recovery and inspired us every day. Unfortunately last week the cancer came back and took over his lungs. He left us this morning.
It was difficult picking a picture to post the announcement of his death with. I chose this one from less than a month ago as it showed him in full energy, health, and spirit – just how we want to remember him. The fact that he is also slightly out of focus, is also rather appropriate as he always lived life at full speed. Although we love him and will miss him terribly, we know that his treatments and death were the right decisions for him.
As always I need to thank and acknowledge his vets and the staff at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine for all of the love and care they have given both Oliver and the rest of our family.
