Rest in Peace - "Billy"

I am heartbroken to announce the passing of my 13 year old beautiful Rough Collie, "Billy."

He had the most wonderful name... Osez Rever Follow Your Heart

(Osez Rever is the kennel name and it translates to mean "Dare to Dream," so he was "Dare to Dream Follow Your Heart")

Billy died almost two years after the death of his best buddy "Twister."

I bought Billy after seeing a photo of a stunning blue merle rough collie in a Canadian Kennel Club breeders magazine.  The search was on and I was fortunate enough to get a collie very much like the one in the photo.  Always wonderful and beautiful and gentle.

I will miss him forever.


  1. I'm so sorry for your loss :(

  2. I'm so sorry. We give our hearts so completely to our pet babies, and losing them causes so much pain. Sounds like he found a good home with you.

  3. I am so sorry to hear of Billy's passing. It is so hard to lose wonderful dogs!

  4. Dear Julie,
    I am so very sorry to read about your loss of Billy. Why can't they live longer than us? So heartbreaking. He is so beautiful...my heart goes out to you.

    Hugs, andi

  5. I'm so sorry to read this Julie - what a gorgeous friend.

  6. I don't know what to say, except that I'm so incredibly sorry for your loss. After losing my sweet Louie 6 months ago, I truly understand how your heart is aching. I still miss him so much.
    Billy was a beautiful friend, and I know he was happy to be part of your wonderful family. Hoping the sweet memories with him help you heal.


  7. Just getting back from vacation this past weekend and catching up. So sorry for the loss of your beloved Billy. Gorgeous dogs and I know he will be missed.

  8. I'm so sorry for the loss of your beloved friend, Julie. His name as beautiful as himself.

  9. Oh, I am so sorry Julie! My heart totally goes out to you. Such a sweet looking fellow.
