I'm going to keep this short, as I've had little sleep and I am mind-numb. My little sweet golden boy died this morning, and my heart is broken. He was getting old and his last bout of illness was a tough one, with no luck from vets and tests and virtually no recovery. I will miss him more than anyone can know.
He and I have been on this roller coaster called life for over a decade, after I adopted him from the Idaho Humane Society. We were meant to be, he and I, and he's been my best friend since.
Thanks to all who have written such thoughtful sentiments and for the flowers, Laura.
I am posting a few photos as well as a beautiful etching given to me by Casey, of Buddy and I. I am so thankful for Casey being here for me and helping me through this. Our little family just got a lot smaller, as Buddy was our everything.
The sweetest little being on the planet, and I hope his wonderful spirit continues to comfort those in need and make people smile.
