Goodbye Buttons!




Hi everyone,

I am sad today as I had to say goodbye to a precious member of my family, my dog Buttons.

About 18 1/2 years ago my husband and daughters were shopping in a local pet shop, where they discovered this cute little puppy.  They all came rushing out to me to say they had to buy him and while I disagreed with them, I am glad this is one argument I lost, he has given us so much joy over the years. On the trip home he started chewing at one of my daughters buttons on shirt, so his name Buttons was decided. 

It will be strange sitting at my desk and not having him underneath keeping me company while I am working or following me wherever I go.  I will miss the happy dances or running round and round he used to do when he got excited when any of us came home ... and of course so much more!

Goodbye my friend …. I love you!

  10. Sending you hugs. It will be difficult for your family to adjust to Buttons not being with you. We had Duchess with us for 16 years. She was in my dreams for quite some time and actually still will pop up in one every once in a while. I was always upset and trying to figure out where she was going potty since I knew I hadn't been taking her out. May your happy memories bring you comfort.
