Buddy


A bit slow on the posts this week, I had to make a hard choice and put my dog Buddy that I have had for 16 years to sleep which was today. :( Somber and sad but so glad that he lived such a long life, he will be missed.

Oh darling, I am so sorry for your loss. It is hard to say goodbye. Even years later you find yourself not believing that our beloved pets have passed away. Sometimes when I visit my Dad I still half expect my childhood pet dog, Shandy, to come bounding to the back door.
Hugs to you.

Oh Leigh, I'm so very sorry. That's the hardest thing I've ever had to face.

Just think of how he's romping around like a pup right now and sending you all of his fluffy love.

Oh, Leigh. I'm so sorry. It's wonderful that you were able to enjoy his love and friendship for so long. Just try to think of the good memories and know that Buddy is in a place where he no longer has to feel pain. Hugs to you from Wrigley and I!

Bless you big
beautiful Buddy
all the way home.

Such an unselfish decision on your part, and I know Buddy thanks you for easing him out of his pain. Truly, it is the toughest decision because it is so unfair that the ones who give us such unconditional love must be taken away so quickly.

Sorry for you...and your heart.

Oh I am so, so sorry.

Hello, I have just discovered your blog and this is my first time to comment. I send you my best wishes - it's such a difficult thing, losing a beloved pet. I just can't imagine the day my gorgeous furry kid Molly is not with me.
You were lucky to have had him in your life for 16 great years :)

Sorry to read about Buddy. Dogs have a way of getting into your soul. They become part of who we are, so they never really leave.
