Dear Buddy passed away today. He had been ill for quite some time, but took a sudden turn for the worse. We went for one last walk on a lovely cool day with a wonderful breeze & the shining sun. I love him and love him.
Early life, what a handsome guy:
Pics from his last car ride, got some good sniffs of the world:
At the vet's on a nice, heated blanket, ready to say goodbye.
Tired old boy. I'm glad I could provide him comfort and love. It wasn't long after this that our old Vet came in. Together we gave him final pats and reassurance--and within seconds he has passed away.
I got a hair clipping and wrapped it up in a little bit of white cloth, put it in a little ceramic container & lit a candle for him that night.
God bless you and keep you Bud.
