RIP Oliver, you were mom Elizabeth’s souldog😢

RIP Oliver, you will be missed every day. You were mom Elizabeth’s souldog; her soul longs to be with yours. Our prayer is that she will find the way there and meet you when the time is right. Your life was filled with love and your beauty was an expression of that. Although mom longs for you she is blessed that you left this world on your own terms and in peace. Your peace continues as you inhabit your heavenly body which will never die. We are thankful that God has provided an eternal home for all who love Him and are called according to His purpose. Lord Jesus please give mom Elizabeth and family Your peace as they miss their beloved boy. Wrap them in the knowledge that they can choose to join him one day. In the Name of Sar Shalom. Prince of Peace. Amen. <3 Caren

Shannon Elizabeth 7-25-20: Ollie left me yesterday. I’m heartbroken. I can’t really talk about it because it hurts too much. Maybe we can chat later but I just can’t now. Best of luck with your FB group. I’m leaving FB for a bit. Thanks for everything.

Oh Elizabeth I had a bad feeling in my gut that this might be the case. I am so very sorry to see this. I have been praying for you and will continue to. Please take a look at this when you get a chance. I want you to have complete and total assurance that you will join Oliver someday https://prayersforpets1.org/pets-people-heaven/ I will check on you again in a few days. I completely understand your desire to avoid Facebook for a while I don’t blame you a bit.

Ecclesiastes 8: 6 For there is a time and a way for everything, although man’s trouble lies heavy on him. 7 For he does not know what is to be, for who can tell him how it will be? 8 No man has power to retain the spirit, or power over the day of death.

I will do a a post for Oliver, many people have been asking how he was doing. My heart hurts for yours, Elizabeth. 😔💗🙏Caren

The two people who donated to a Ollie will have their money returned in about 90 days. I don’t know how to refund their donations but if I don’t set up the withdrawal portion of the gofundme page the money is automatically returned after 90 days.

Sigh…

I just dropped Ollie off at the cemetery. He’ll be buried next to his fur broth[er] buddy

Oh wow, that’s beautiful. I’ve never seen a photo like that on a stone. What a lovely tribute.
Did you lose Ollie in his sleep?
Shannon Elizabeth
My sister is doing really well financially and rented a house in Folly Beach SC for a week. We were able to take the Ollie and his brother down to see the ocean. I wanted to give Ollie an adventure that would make him fight harder. He wasn’t doing great but he got to see the ocean.
Shannon Elizabeth
No, Ollie died in my arms around 12:40 yesterday
Prayers for Pets
How nice, I’m glad you have those memories to hang onto
Oh my… So sad… I’m so sorry sweetie
Shannon Elizabeth
Thank you
I don’t know how my heart is still beating
Prayers for Pets
I hear you, he was so special to you
Shannon Elizabeth
He’s my baby
Truly
Prayers for Pets
I know…

Oliver in happier times. Photo: Shannon Elizabeth

I sent a video
I don’t even know why I’m sharing this but thank you for listening
Prayers for Pets
He captured all of our hearts with film alone, I can’t even imagine how much this must hurt for you as mommy
Shannon Elizabeth
So much
I held him for the 12 hours ride back
It didn’t feel real even though I saw him die
Prayers for Pets
So beautiful. We love you Oliver.
Omgosh your baby is so adorable!

Shannon Elizabeth
It wasn’t supposed to be like this
Prayers for Pets
Ya, I know…
It looks like he just ran out of steam
Shannon Elizabeth
He wanted to sleep on the bathroom floor so I slept next to him
Prayers for Pets
Really? My goodness!
That sounds painful
Shannon Elizabeth
In the morning his brother peed on the sheets so I stripped the bed and put them on the floor. Ollie went from the bathroom to the pile of sheets and so I put down pillows and sat next to him and prayed. He’d not wanted to cuddle for a day or two but he ended up crawling up on my lap
Shannon Elizabeth
I wonder if he knew
So I moved out to the living room so he could see the ocean
And he cuddled for a bit
Then he got up and laid down next to me
I sat beside him on the floor and just prayed
Prayers for Pets
He probably did. Was that the last video of him?
Shannon Elizabeth
Then I could see he was about to go and I held him
I hope he wasn’t in pain
Prayers for Pets
Nice to get a little cuddle goodbye
Was he as calm as he was in the video? If he was, then probably not
Shannon Elizabeth
He was
Thank you
I hope you’re right
He was very calm

Prayers for Pets
I think so, if he had been in pain his body language would have told you. So he slipped away peacefully?
Shannon Elizabeth
I think it’s possible
Prayers for Pets
You were holding him so you would know
Shannon Elizabeth
Right before he left I told him I wasn’t afraid to lose him because the connection we have is always in my heart. I was calm for him. I’ve been trying not to stress him with my sadness and fear but I’ve always felt afraid
He literally left me a few minutes later
I wish I hadn’t told him that
Prayers for Pets
I have observed many situations that have been very fraught with agitation. Pet parents have a very difficult time getting over passings like that.
Shannon Elizabeth
I wish he was here
If I would know then I guess he was at peace

Mom Elizabeth can have complete assurance that she will join Ollie one day


Prayers for Pets
I know but in the future you will be glad that you did you gave him permission and he probably sensed that. That was a beautiful unselfish act.
Shannon Elizabeth
I really do love him so I don’t want him to be here if he doesn’t want to be
But this hurts
I don’t want to be here
Prayers for Pets
He was your soul dog.
Can a pet be your soulmate?

Shannon Elizabeth
He was my soulmate
He was and buddy was too
Prayers for Pets
Oh sweetheart… I’m so sorry. I wish you could cry on my shoulder… but you are, virtually.
Shannon Elizabeth
It actually helps
I didn’t want to talk
But I appreciate this
I’m gonna go

Mom Elizabeth believed Ollie was her souldog


I’m an hour from home and I think his brother is sad
He was there when it happened
It’s hard to tell if he really knows. He’s more reserved than Ollie
I always knew how Ollie felt
Prayers for Pets
Okay darling I love you you are a very special special person whom God loves deeply. He knows, of course he knows. That’s got to be hard when his sibling is so unlike him yet so like him in looks.
You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers all day I told Victor too. You should talk to your dad sometime soon and tell him I know this is intertwined with his circumstances as well.
Shannon Elizabeth
I’m mad at my dad
I asked him to pray yesterday before Ollie died and he told me I needed to let him go
My dad is fighting for his life and doesn’t want to die so why would he know I needed to let Ollie go
He didn’t pray for a miracle. He prayed for peace
Prayers for Pets
That’s rough… it sounds like you did what he suggested and Ollie took you up on it. Maybe God indicated to him that Ollie was past the point of a miracle.
Shannon Elizabeth
There’s never a point past a miracle
I don’t know
You’ve been sweet to me though and I appreciate it
So thank you


Prayers for Pets
I think the miracle at this point needs to happen in your heart. You’ve got some duking it out to do with God. I’m asking him to give me suggestions for scriptures for you to meditate on. He hasn’t given them to me yet I will let you know as soon as he does. In the meantime take this to heart.


Psalm 34:18 The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.


Maybe what you need most right now is to meditate on the truth of the scripture above. Meditation on scripture is best done in small portions. You may need to meditate on that verse long enough so that you actually believe it. I know you are crushed I know you are broken hearted that’s why it’s so important for you to meditate on this truth. Ttyl 🤗💗🙏Caren
Shannon Elizabeth
Thank you
