RIP Dozer

8 March 2011 - 28 May 2014

Yesterday was a really sad day for my family. We learnt that our dog has passed away after an accident with a car. He once took on a car, but was lucky enough to escape with a few scratches. This time he wasn't so lucky.

L-R: Penny, Snowy, Kostya, Dozer
Dozer was on an extended holiday in Tasmania, and was being looked after by my mother-in-law (MIL) and her partner, as we did not have room for both Dozer and Snowy in my parent's apartment where we were (and still are) residing. I am so thankful for my MIL for looking after Dozer for the past 7 months, and I'm certain that Dozer have enjoyed his time in Tasmania, as he was able to run freely and hunt in the paddock and swamp with his mum and dad (Penny and Kostya) instead of being cooped up in an apartment with Snowy.
I'm going to miss Dozer. He is definitely irreplaceable. I'm going to miss how his fur around his bum grows so long whilst the fur around his legs stay short... I call it his fur pants. I'm going to miss the cateye eyeliner look he had going. I'm going to miss his obedient submissive behaviour when commanded (which seems to lack in Snowy). I'm going to miss being able to cradle him in my arms like a baby. I'm going to miss him tricking Snowy that there's someone at the door by barking and then taking his bone when Snowy is distracted.

Rest in peace Dozey bear. Hope you are having fun chasing rabbits and native hens in doggy heaven. I know your pal, Snowy, misses you too. <3


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about Dozer, my thoughts are with you. He looked like he was a character! My friend also had her fur baby pass away (unfortunately he was put down due to illness) on the same day, how sad :(

  2. Oh so sorry to hear about Dozer :( He looks like such a lovely little thing. :(

  3. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of Dozer. I'm sure he was a beautiful companion and will rest at peace.

  4. This is so, so sad. Rest in peace Dozer xx
