As difficult as this is to post, it is only fair to let Buddy's friends know I fulfilled a promise to him. I said goodbye when he let me know it was time. After a wonderful fall, Buddy became very sick just after midnight last Friday morning.
As his internal masses began leaking, Buddy was unable to stand and was barely able to lift his head or wag his tail. Before the pain could overtake him, his wonderful doctor and I helped him leave this world.
I could write about him for days and still it would not be enough. So I will just say he will never be forgotten and he left me with a heart full of love.
Buddy, even 17 years and more were not enough.
