It is with great great sadness to say today Buddy went to the bridge where he will be at peace and running free with Holly. His dementia deteriorated quickly from Monday to were he became terribly confused and anxious and it broke my heart to see him in such a way.

I called Buddy, Buddy because I knew that’s what he would be and he has been that for 12 wonderful years. I knew the day I met him he was special and we shared a bond like I have never experienced before. The trust and respect we had for one another was endless. Buddy changed my life taking me in a direction I had not planned and he gave me the opportunity to meet so many new people in my life to which I am forever grateful.

He had the most beautiful nature, he loved everyone and everyone loved him and he was so gentle and calm around children. Buddy helped so many other dogs overcome their fears due to his gentle and friendly personality.

My heart is broken but I take comfort knowing where ever I walk you will be by my side Bud. Thank you Buddy, I love you my best friend.

Lots of love Chris, I feel for you, I have the same situation looming but taking a day at a time. Horrid .... grief is the cost of love and we would never want to be without love.
