Ozone Friendly

Brandt and my first 'baby' was a 5 week old bullmastif/Rhodesian ridgeback/ rottweiler cross puppy that was rejected by his mother.

He was born 20 years ago today.

Our little baby red rotty was supposed to be an outside builders dog, but he was sooo cute he soon became a bed buddy.
I am sorry that I don't have any puppy photos of him with us here on the island to share on this post.

6 months after we got engaged, Brandt had tragically lost his beloved dog BA. When he found out about this puppy he said yes straight away.
It didn't take long for him to become our big red rotty and he took up most of the bed!

Ozone became our full time companion, he went EVERYWHERE with us. I often drove around with him in my yellow VW bug and even took him to work with me.

We took him to Tasmania one Christmas, he came to Noosa for our honeymoon and many more trips.
He appeared at my Nana's place up the road for a cup of tea and toast every Tuesday and Thursday and the odd Saturdays. We loved him to bits!

On his 10th birthday 10 years ago, my preschool class had a doggy birthday for him with cake ,candles and dress ups.

Sadly he passed away 9 years ago while I was in hospital with my newborn baby Teddy.
I am so sad they never got to meet. My last moments spent with him while I was in labour, he was a good hugging partner through the night. Brandt and I are still heartbroken, we know we need another dog and we hope the right one will come along for our children to love and cherish soon.

I miss you Ozy, Thanks for being the best buddy to us for almost 11 years.

Dogs are really friends of people... When I was a little child, I had cocker spaniel. She was lovely dog, but she died when I was 6 years old. It was something big and very sad for me. Now I have mix of Saint Bernard and Polish Tatra Sheepdog - she is my the best friend on this Earth :)
