Buddy (Ww Streamline)


Recommended Posts

One year ago today we helped our dear, sweet Buddy boy to the Rainbow Bridge.


He became ill at the beginning of 2009, right around his birthday (Jan. 30). We thought it was simply LS, and doctored for that: neurologist, accupuncturist, etc. But he just wasn't getting better. Finally, I took him back to the vet and she felt swollen lymph nodes. She suggested a fine needle aspirate...and I immediately knew what she was thinking. Lymphoma.


That was on a Friday, so we had the weekend to decide what to do. Our decision was that, if it was indeed lymphoma, we would let Buddy go. He just wasn't feeling good, you could tell in his eyes. He wasn't eating....which was not at all like Buddy. He had lost 10 pounds. I hated seeing my precious boy like that.


On the following Monday we got the call: definitely lymphoma. We said goodbye to him that day. It was so hard, but I knew it was the best thing for him. He had given us so much love; we just couldn't let him suffer like he was.


He really was the Best Boy in the World, just like I always told him. He came so far in his time with us, from being a growly, don't-get-too-close type of dog, to our lap dog. It was just amazing to see his trust in us develop, to see him blossom into the sweetest boy ever.




I sometimes feel that I didn't really get to mourn his loss....just six weeks later my daughter died, and of course that overshadowed everything else. I like to think that they are both in Heaven, Buddy snuggled up with Elizabeth.

I like that, Love is stronger than death. I do believe they are together. Buddy was such a nice boy. You had a very difficult year. Hugs.

I hope it brings some comfort knowing that Buddy was there to greet her.

No doubt here, either, that Buddy and Elizabeth are together now.
