Carol  ·  Sep. 19, 2014

he had a massive stroke sometime during the night. i took him into the vets this morning for euthanization. i think all of us are glad that owen is finally free but losing him is still heartbreaking. owen you were the kindest most patient and most stoic dog i have ever in peace sweetie and extra hugs to shawn who loved you so very well.




Awww....too many in too short a time. ((cyberhug)) to Shawn , house volunteers & saints staff who loved & cared for sweet Owen . I didn't get to know Owen and I sense I missed out on knowing a brave & wonderful little dog. Like Brenda, I picture him free of ailments & running with his cocker ears flapping in the wind.

RIP Owen.. you were a great dog that many loved.


Big hugs to you Shawn.........sweet dreams Owen you were such a gentle boy. The laundry room looks way too big now!

Every so often a photo comes along that needs no words - so touching Shawn. Rest peacefully Owen.

i am so sorry carol and shawn. he loved his chicken and buns that u brought him shawn, but i think most of all he loved your hands holding him, loving him and cuddling him. rip owen the laundry room is not the same without you and angel.


I loved him so much....he would know when I came into the kitchen, his little nose pressed against the gate, looking for chicken or hugs. My blind and deaf Sir Owen. He was the one I wish I could have taken home. I loved him with my whole heart, and I am so glad I was part of his life #chickenandbuns


Omg... I saw Shawn's post on Facebook...Owen was such a doll, and I will miss him for sure, but I picture him now running free with bright eyes and open ears with that beautiful cocker face.
