It's Hard To Say Goodbye

I knew this day would come, but it still didn't make it any easier. We had to say goodbye to our best friend Buster. I miss him like crazy!
He was my third furry son. I really think Buster thought I was his Mom. The first year of his puppy hood was crazy! Buster was as stubborn as an ox and had as much energy as a teenage boy on Monster energy drinks. Then he grew, and grew, and grew until his body caught up with his enormous paws. I really could write a book about all of the crazy "Marley-like" antics he did...if you are a Labrador owner then you know what I'm talking about!
The thing I'll miss most is his loyalty and companionship. He was always by my side and watched over my kids like a celebrity bodyguard. Love, kisses, and a "I'll do anything for you" attitude all rolled into 115 pounds of beautiful brown furriness. These are the memories I try to keep, it helps to ease the pain. Buster, I hope you are having the best life ever in doggie heaven, chasing cats, playing with your friend Paki, and eating tortillas...we miss you but will never forget you. Buster Brown, the best dog ever!

So sorry to hear about Buster. Losing our animals is one of the worst things we can go through. I hope it gives you comfort to know that you gave him a great life!

Oh, reading that made me sooooo sad. He looked like such a sweet & fun boy :) I was pregnant when I had to put my dog of 13 years to sleep, that was a rough day.
Sorry for your loss.
