Losing a pet. In the past 5 months we lost 2 of our fur babies. It has been so hard on our family. Each turn or situation that happens in my day the thoughts and memories of Aleksander (6 years) & Oscar (14.5 years old) are there. Aleksander was a European Doberman, he was the leader of the pack & the guide in our family. Oscar was by my side for 14.5 years & he was a trooper. Aleksander was driven by providing service and protection to us as a family. Oscar was driven by food and physical touch. Their presence impacted each family member in different ways. The love from these boys was unconditional & consistent. We were blessed as a family to have them as part of our family. They both taught us different life lessons & I hope that they know the love that we have for them. We tried each and every day to make things perfect for them. Walking through the doors of our home is not the same without their presence in the home. I miss sneaking around the corner and seeing Oscar silently sleeping & I miss the Doberman smile that Aleksander would greet me with. The memories of these 2 boys are vivid, their smell, and their funny quirks I miss painfully. I pray that they continue to guide us on our life journey. I look forward to the day that they are there for us as we cross over to the other side. I know that they both will be waiting to us guide on the rest of our journey. So thankful they came into our lives & our family, teaching us what true love & loyalty is.
