Thank you, Buddy

While close-up face to face with him and looking at each other’s eyes, Buddy slipped instantly from fully conscious into unconscious perfect peace, and then within a couple of minutes (tough guy – he needed a second dose) into irreversible, eternal oblivion at 9:06 AM today, August 5, 2015, eight years since he adopted me in August 2007.  He was about 9 years old, date of birth unknown.  He adopted me as a stray.  The last words he heard, repeatedly, were, “You’re a good Buddy.”  Nothing is more true.  Thanks, all, for your caring support.  I know that some of you have been really “there” for us, and continue so.  It counts.  It matters.

Thank you, Buddy.

I’m going for a walk now, as you would have
me do now and at least three times every day.

  1. I was thinking of you both. He was indeed, a very good dog. I hope he finds Abby and Hayley somewhere…..

  2. Hi. I just randomly found your blog and I am SO very sorry to hear about your loss. It’s a pain that you can never be prepared for. The only advice I have is to grieve the way you need to. Don’t let anyone tell you that you should be doing it differently or that he was just a dog and to get over it. I just lost my cousin Mya (mini dachshund) in March and then 28 days later my sister, Khia (pit/mastiff). I know how much it hurts. Sending thoughts for comfort and peace. <3, Noodle the Schnoodle

  3. Sending you love, light, peace and healing. It takes a long time to get over the loss of a dear friend and companion. May the coming days bring you comfort as you remember fondly the time you had together.
