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.

Oh Bonnie, I'm in tears reading of Buddy's passing. I can't imagine the loss after 17 years of togetherness. I so hope you find comfort in his memories and all the times you shared. He was so loved.

My heart aches for you. hugging

Dear Bonnie, the first pic of Buddy looking back in the car says it all. A gentle soul and compassionate loving pup. wub
He is running painfree at the Bridge with all our other dogs. RIP sweet angel. angel

You have to smile at Buddy. Then you have to remember all the people he helped to smile when they needed to so badly. Then you have to be grateful to your very core that a humble animal can do so much for the world.

Goodbye Buddy.

Bonnie, you have my deepest sympathy for your loss.

Bonnie, I know you are feeling lost and in pain right now. I wish there was something I could do to ease that pain.

Buddy was a wonderful sole who was loved by many.

Run Free Buddy.

I have a long memorial post here about Cheyenne. It helped me remember the many many good times we had together. If you feel up to it, please come back and share your memories of Buddy.

Buddy had a wonderful life, with a great family. He was "one lucky dog." Congratulations, Buddy, on a life well lived. Your passing makes me sad but that is a small price for having vicariously shared in your life. Thanks, Bonnie, for letting us share that life and for telling us of his passing.

Buddy, you wondrous giver and healer, your eager distribution of happiness and laughter buoyed so many. Your spirit holds so much joy, you just had to share your inner sunshine with those who needed you most. Your kindness and sweetness continues to heal as we remember your gifts. angel

Dear Bonnie, may you feel wrapped in the warmth of our care here. So many of us benefitted from your sharing of your sweet, precious Buddy. Thank you. Please know that I am keeping you in my best ongoing good thoughts and prayers. I am wishing you strength. hugging
