Today I received...

Some very sad news. My sister and her family had to put to sleep their beloved dog Buddy (seen above.) Last night Buddy started having uncontrolable seizures which came on out of the blue. The seizures got progressively worse throughout the night and by early this morning, there was nothing left that the emergency vets could do to save our dear, sweet, Buddy Boy.

Buddy's loss is particularly hard being as this is my nephews first real time losing a friend...
Buddy will be deeply moruned by all those who knew and loved him. He was the greatest dog anyone could ever ask for. My sister and her families only comfort lies in the fact that they gave Buddy, an abandoned and abused pup, many happy years in a loving home.

Please join me in purring, praying and sending positive thoughts to my sister and her family during this difficult time...

Buddy we love you!

Oh, we are so sorry to learn about Buddy. It is so hard for a human to lose a furry friend and to lose him so suddenly is even harder. We send purrs and prayers your family's way.

We originally stopped by to tell you the dogs sing here, not the cats. It's "Merci Cat, the dog" because she has such a love for us cats and most cats love her too.

Sorry to hear about the loss of buddy, and your poor family will be very sad having a big woofies sized hole in their hearts.

I can tell that he had a good life with them and gave and received lots and lots of love. I know that Buddy will be the bridge, with all our other friends, and he will wait for his fambly to come and join him one day.

Sending you warm hugs from across the ocean.

Meowm and I are so sorry to hear of the loss of Buddy. He is running around free of pain now and will be waiting for his family when they cross the bridge. It is little comfort to those left behind though.

I am guessing Buddys family was with him as he passed and I am certain that was a comfort to him.

Purrayers and gentle headbutts to all of you.

Oh Moki - we are so sorry and sad to hear these terrible news! We know the pain his family is in - we just wish no one would ever have to experience it - but that is not how life is....
We will purr for them.
And yes - what little comfort it is - it does give you a little help to think about all the wonderful years he was given in his forever home.
You still miss them so much....
Thank you for putting up Miral's badge - we so hope she will pull through this...
