Buddy, our beautiful dog passed away tonight after a week long fight to stay with us. He had a wonderful life filled with sunshine, freedom, and pride. The farm won't ever be the same without you.
Today was the first day your eyes weren't bright with life and you finally let go. Despite your freedom, you never took advantage by running away off the property, or chasing or harming any other living thing. You were a prince.
A loving companion, a good friend, a joyful soul.
Bud fell asleep finally tonight curled up with cat George. In the end, it came very quickly and peacefully, as we all prayed for it to happen. I believe that you are waking to a healthy body and old friends and you'll watch for our other babes when they come to you.I'm imagining you running with Molly, Phoenix, Tallah and Tawny at Rainbow Bridge- and if there's a heaven, you're in it fella.

Thank you so much everyone. Just to let you know, we had Buddy's funeral today and I read this tribute and everyone's condolences as well. My family was very touched. He is buried with a copy of your words and kind thoughts beside him, as well as some cookies, a bottle of water, and a ball. It was a nice (but very coooooooold!) sendoff, with lots of tears and memories.
Thanks again for your support.
