Goodbye Frodo

Guest Buster

Recommended Posts

It ahs taken about 6 months for me to do this and I don't know if I can get through dry eyed or not.


We got Frodo as a rescue Miniature Yorky six months before my son was born. He was a gift to my step-son so he did not feel left out as Chase needed extra attention.


Frodo quickly the ruler of the house. He was fearless to the end, barking and warning us of any intruders, and when company came over, it was him they had to visit first. His little stubby, wagging tail going so fast, thought he would lift off at times. Frodo never met a stranger.


Frodo was a very funny boy. When I swept the floor, he thought it was a monster after his food, so he ran and ate every last bite,and then stood guard over his toys. Yes, Frodo was a possesive little guy. He would fight a bear for his rubber cell phone or squeaky fries.


One day, the neighbors got a new Akita for breeding purposes. I had left for a job interview and was not there. My wife said she opened the back door for a minute, and Frodo, the quickest dog this side of the Mississippi, shot out to meet the new dog. The rest I cannot write.


My wife managed to get him to the vet alive, but only for about 15 minutes. She said he looked at her with those beautiful eyes as if to say good bye and peacefully crossed the bridge.


Frodo is now on a hill at our family campground. We will be building there soon. It is a field that he loved to run in, surrounded by fruit trees he loved to mark. We have plans for a little flower garden when the house is built, to honor him.


He will like that. He will like being around us, hearing the kids grow up,laugh and play, and we will talk well of him, loud enough for him to hear.


I will say goodbye for now, Frodo, but I am coming up to see you one day, and I am bringing the biggest squeaky toy I can find.


We love you,


Buster and Family

Oh no. I am so, so very sorry for your loss. It's so difficult when they pass from illness, old age, or disease, but to lose them like this just truly breaks my heart. Hugs.

I know it's hard...I just lost my sweet little boy, Pyro.

The only thing that keeps me going is knowing that where my Pyro is, there is no pain, and all kinds of fun things that he enjoys.


Your puppy has all kind of squeaky toys in heaven, and all kinds of visitors to greet.


I am so sorry.

I only know him from your posting, and I am crying as I write this.


I'm so sorry for your tragic loss, and I hope you know that he will always be with you, in your hearts and in your memories. One day you will see him again, and it will be as though you were never apart.
