Our vet has since found what took our dear Buster away from us. Stomach cancer. It very well may have been the cause of his illness one year ago. He was a very sick boy then, but he ended up recovering well and enjoying life in his new Georgia backyard. Paw and I loved seeing him walk through the woods down to the lake and then come running back to us with a smile on his face when we called his name.
Buster Brown Booglebear was a big strong boy, but he was always our baby. He had been with us since we found him as a little 8-week-old puppy abandoned on the side of the road. We saved him and that's what helps us deal with the pain of losing him.
Buster, your Maw and Paw loved you more than you could imagine and we miss you so much. You have left a huge paw print on our hearts. We are so thankful we had you in our lives and one day we will see you again. We will hug you, love on you and kiss that beautiful, handsome face.
Dear God, thank you for giving us 11 1/2 wonderful years with our Buster and please keep him close to You in heaven.
This has been such a very sad and difficult week, yet DogDad and I can feel God helping us navigate through it. We are focusing on the joy and laughter Hobbit and Buster brought us and the fact that we gave them each a happy, safe and loving home.
DogDad and I can just see Lindsey, Annie, Bogey, Huck and Hobbit in heaven as Buster arrives. "Looky thar, it's a Booglebear!" It's a funny little line we used to say and makes us smile.
Missing our boys,
Buster's Maw / Hobbit's Mommy / DogMom
