Last week was a difficult week for our family. Our dog, Buddy, had recently been diagnosed with cancer and underwent surgery on Monday to remove part of a tumor on his leg. We brought him home Monday evening but unfortunately things took a turn for the worse and he passed away early Tuesday morning. Chris and I were with him through the night and we held him during his last moments. While we know Buddy is at peace now, it was difficult to say goodbye.
Buddy became a member of our family 7 years ago when we adopted him from the Italian Greyhound Rescue organization. He was an incredibly nervous dog but wanted nothing more than a warm body to curl up next to. He was happiest in the Airstream, because it meant we were always close by. And, he definitely lived a life of adventure his last few years! Chris put it best by saying, “Although he managed to add a pinch of crazy to our lives sometimes, he also gave us a heaping cup of happiness that will be hard to replace.”
Rest in peace, Buddy. We miss you.
