Goodbye Buddy!

buddyHi everyone,

I am sad today as I had to say goodbye to a precious member of my family, my dog Buddy who I have been lucky to have had the pleasure of so much love for about 15 years. It seems like yesterday that my DH came home from visiting a friend of his and plopped this tiny bundle onto the bed beside me … it was Buddy!

He had been unwell for a few days and we had to take him to the vet and discovered he had a tumor which was unfixable so the kindest thing to do was to let him go.

I will miss the happy dances he used to do with me and of course so much more!

Goodbye my friend …. I love you!

Oh I'm so sorry. We lost our cat Patch on May 12th. It ws so very hard. One of the ladies posted on my blog and called them our "furbabies" I thought that was an excellent description of how we feel about them. The nestle right into our family, with their own little personalities, when they leave us it is heartbreaking. Here is a virtual hug for you.

My heart is broken for you. They do become like members of the family, don't they? May you find comfort in knowing that the days ahead without him will get easier.
