Oliver came into the household’s life 12 years ago. He entered the family as the special little buddy of my sister, Michelann Ortloff and her wife Julie Cushing. I am Michelann’s brother and was living at her home. Ollie became my very special friend and I was his walkie buddy for much of his life. He was the sweetest little guy and a friend to everyone he met. He enjoyed runs on the beach, long trips and walkies, where he usually managed to get some mud on himself even on sunny days. He was happy and healthy until the very end and his passing was a sad event. My sister has passed and I am sure that he happily greeted her when he passed over the Bridge. Those of us that are still around miss Ollie every moment of the day and night. His special joy and sweet little face will always be with us. Thank you for the opportunity to create a memorial for him, one that will be shared to all of Ollie’s friends.

A donation was made in Oliver's memory and the memorial was created on January 16, 2023.
