Goodbye to our camping companion!

Our little dog Oliver died yesterday.

He camped with us in British Columbia, Washington and Oregon including two Escape rallies, two Oregon Gatherings and two NOGs.

We feel blessed that we had ten years with him, but are feeling the loss right now.

Sorry to hear that Brian... our pups are little family members..only more forgiving and more accepting of our faults!
Dread the day already when we have to say goodbye to our little "bug". Know you will miss him. Like Jeff said, he probably thought of you as traveling "with him" : - )

Brian, sorry to hear of Olivers passing. It is always tough, but the good memories will soon erase the grieving.
