Celebrating our Berner Veterans

In Loving Memory of


January 1st 1998 to July 19th 2008

So sadly missed by Anna Maria Berardi


This is my dear girl Oshi, my first Bernese Mountain Dog and my very first and only dog ever!

Oshi was diagnosed with two cancers, one to the gall bladder and one to the mammary glands at age 10 (at six monhs interval). Oshi had surgery for both, but both came back within months.

Oshi left us on July 19, 2008.

She was such a lovely and brave girl! May her memory live on forever!

My dear baby taught me all about unconditional love and compassion. One day I hope to be able to go walk with her again. That day, I will buy her a " croissant " at her favorite bakery, where she stood so stubborn, looking at me right in my eyes, and not wanting to walk further, until I bought her one!
