Goodbye Best Friend Bubba

Today, my bff had to be put down.  He was so old and tired and weak and sick, I could no longer hang onto him.  I had to let him go.  I am so sad to lose him but I am glad he is no longer suffering.  I made this page today while I sat with him waiting for his appointment with the Vet.  I wanted to remember all his fun attributes, rather than journal about the sadness.  I will so miss him as he and I have been totally together for the last two years.  We spent everyday all day long together, doing art, working in the yard, taking walks, being company for each other.  I cry because he is gone but know it is best for him.  So, in honor of Bubba...

  10. Carol.. I am so sorry to here about your beloved Bubba. I know how hard it was to say goodbye to my wonderful cat of 22 years. And now that I have an incredible dog who is my loyal secret keeper, I can't imagine what I'd do without her. It sounds like you have many wonderful memories to keep close to your heart.
