"Ch. NorthWapiti's Oreo"
July 14, 1994 - February 28, 2008
For a number of years O's has been spoiled and
loved by my brother, Jim and his wife, Melissa. About 11 months
ago, Oreo was diagnosed with cancer and given only a few months
to live. However, with much love and top notch vet attention
Oreo far outlived the odds. We are not surprised, she was a
stubborn and determined young lady from birth. However, in the
last week it had become apparent to those that loved her that
the cancer was progressing and Oreo was no longer having the
quality of life we all wished for her to have. So, last night
Jim and Melissa let her go. I asked that they pass on a message
to her to 'come play with me on the trail' before she left - and
I know she will .
Many thanks to Jim and Mel for giving Oreo such a wonderful home
for the past years. She was a wonderful dog and deserved no
less. Her adventures were many, but more importantly, she was
loved from the day she was born till the day she left.
See you out there O - this time I'm not dropping you in
