Oakley is at the Bridge

We lost Oakley this morning to hemangiosarcoma. We are shocked and absolutely devastated - there are no words to describe my intense sadness. In a matter of 3 hours he was diagnosed and gone to the Bridge. I am so grateful DH and I were with him - I was actually working out of town 2 hours away and DH called me to come home. Oakley was "mom's boy" and I prayed he would wait for me to make that drive in pouring rain and bad traffic - and he waited. We held him and told him what a good boy he was and how much he was loved. It was peaceful and Oakley was free of pain - we feel blessed for that. When my head clears I will come back to this thread and write the tribute Oakley deserves. I honestly do not know how I will cope without him. Right now we are trying to keep it together for Seger who is looking for his brother. While our world was crashing down around us this morning it was cold, rainy and dark outside. We came home to the lake, took Seger outside and it had snowed - not just any snow but nice "snowball" snow - we played with Seger for an hour to distract him. While we were playing the sun came out - we know it was Oakley shining down on this very painful day - Oakley making sure Seger would have snowballs to play with to ease his and mom and dad's pain. Rest peacefully Okey-Poke! You will always be mom's special boy XO

So sorry, that was very quick, when you feel like it, talk more about what happened, i am sure seger will miss him so much,as you will. I have seen so many on here that have had their babies die of this, i started reading about this, terrible cancer, it is so horrible, takes are dogs by surprise, so quickly.

I am so sorry. Hugs.

Unfortunately this disease often seems to appear out of nowhere and by then it is too late.
