Oscar was a beautiful, animal friend to Nicole for 14 years. Oscar had quite an amazing last day on earth as his owner, Nicole and Nicole's sister, Colette spent last Saturday in much prayer. After visiting the vet late that morning, they all decided that they would keep Oscar for the weekend and then make a decision to 'put him down' on Monday. Nicole and her sister wanted to spend some quality time saying goodbye with their beloved Oscar.
So, after the vet, they went to the beautiful Rosary Garden in Jupiter, Fl. on the grounds of St. Peter's Catholic church. Nicole and Colette, Oscar and Nicole's other Yorkie, named Linus walked and prayed the rosary with Oscar being carried in procession aong the rosary path of decades. They saw a real owl in the tree and thought that was amazing.
When they got to the end of praying the rosary, they were at the big statue of Our Blessed Mother Mary. Their rosary prayers were finished, and poor little Oscar got sick and they knew it was time to go home.
Nicole and Colette brought him home and laid him on the couch. Nicole remembered she had some Lourdes Holy Water that a friend had brought her and she sprinkled the holy water on Oscar and Linus and themselves and prayed some more.
Three minutes later, Oscar perked right up, raised his head, and opened his eyes wide.
At this time, they put Linus next to Oscar on the couch for their special goodbyes. A little later, Oscar died peacefully. Nicole loved her Oscar very much. She will miss him but she knows there is eternal life and feels sure that her dear Oscar will be waiting for her in Heaven for God couldn't possibly have a Heaven without our furry friends that He gave us on earth. Animals do not have souls, so they go right to Heaven. And we can only hope that someone prays the rosary for us as we lay dying. Pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
