Hi Bud Bud, 

Mommy is missing you very much right now. I keep looking at your nose prints on the window and imagine you standing there in front of them. It doesn't help that it is raining today...tears and rain seem to go together... 

I want you to know that I hug you and hold you every day in my thoughts honey...I am so sorry this terrible disease happened to you. Would give anything to kiss your sweet face and look into those big beautiful brown Buddy eyes...

I keep looking at your place on the couch...how you loved to be on your back sometimes, with your tail out to the side, your head and nose pointing in the other direction - back paws up and the sweet way you held your front paws, too. I will always remember your sweet poses, Bud Bud. You always had so many different ones!

I watched a couple of videos today, of you and Coco playing at the doggy park. You were so happy and lively, even though you had to keep tucking your tail away so she wouldn't grab it every minute! But you know how Coco is...she loves your tail and loves chasing it, almost as much as you do! 

Just wanted to let you know, you're always in my heart and thoughts sweet boy...hope you are having a happy day at the Bridge.

mommy

Hi Boo Boo, 

It was hard again last night...keep waking up with that awful ache inside, for missing you so much and every moment. I am wondering if you gave a sign this morning? Maybe you knew mom needed a sign, as it is Sunday and the hardest day...5 weeks ago Sunday my beloved little man. I saw the tennis ball you swiped from the neighbor's dogs on the shelf in the woodshed yesterday, and this morning it is gone!

Did you come and get it, baby?

Dear Elise, what a handsome guy your Buddy was, I read the memorial and it was truly beautiful, Buddy was a lucky guy. I just lost my little doxie Woody not quite a month ago and miss him something awful...I can only say he is in a better place and whole again...Woody loved to play as he got older so I'm am sure Buddy and Woody are having a great time at the bridge watchin the girls go by. He so loved the ladies.

May we find peace

Dear Elise,
Your letter to Beautiful Loving Buddy brought me to tears, you miss Buddy as much as I miss my Bedo, there are so much reminder...the day I left, September 21, exactly one month from today today, the rain was pouring, and somehow it was a sign of tears..Bedo's last look was very pleading and it still haunt me to this day...I scare to walk in the room where I was packing while he came by and jumped to my luggage..Bedo Mom miss you so much and I am so sorry!

We love our babies so much and we don't really know how much we really needed them and miss them until they have crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  It is so hard, I see Bedo's all over the house, poor guy, he used eat in the bathroom as others would want to steal his specially made food.  Buddy is so beautiful and the memories of him I am sure is painful but also very sweet.  It is important to keep our loved ones present, I don't care how crazy people think it is, to me it is important.

My thoughts are with you and Beautiful Buddy
Love
Bedomom

Hi Toni, 

Thank you so much for checking out the Bud! Yes, he's truly a beautiful boy, inside and out. I read some of your posts there, about your dear Woody baby - he sounds like quite the character! Your memorial was very touching - the many ways you are missing him...very beautifully written. I think you do him an honor, your willingness to one day provide a loving home to another doxie...it is what he would want. And also, for you not to suffer for missing him and to be happy again. I know Buddy has bumped into Woody by now...he always loved meeting new friends and if I'm not mistaken, he is probably either chasing Woody...(Buddy loves to chase, more than be chased!) or as you say, hanging at the Bridge checking out the gals...

Hoping we have brighter days ahead, 

Elise, Buddy's 4ever mommy

Dear Bedomom, 

Thank you so much for writing - I hope that the tears you shed are healing in some way, if not now, then very soon. I know how much you miss your baby, and you are so right, we never know how much we really needed them or just how much a part of our daily lives they really were, until they are in heaven with their pals. I know you feel so bad, about the way things happened, but I hope one day you can let go of the regrets and be a happier person, as this is what Bedo would want. I can remember times, too...when we left Bud, even for just a few hours and I missed him so much...wish I had never had to leave him because I know it hurt him so much to be left for any length of time. I am also having trouble letting go of regrets - thinking that if we had done things differently, Buddy's kidney disease might have been prevented, although I can never know for sure. It just pains me, that I did not find our more about Lyme disease in canines, but our vet lulled us to sleep on that subject, saying that just about everyone would test positive for Lyme, so we didn't pursue any course of action, other than to follow his directions in trying to protect Buddy. I know that Bud knows, I loved him with all my heart, and always will and that it was me who went to bat for him. Bedo knows that too...knows how much his mom will always love him!

Much of my pain also has to do with my own personal situation, and who I am with, at the moment - a person, I found out, who is not capable of loving animals in the way people here on this forum love animals...who never loved Buddy in the same way or to the extent that I loved him. This person was willing to put him to sleep, even though the vet said he still had a chance, because of money. Yes, it was expensive to continue, and his prognosis was guarded, but he still did have a chance...sometimes they get lucky with cases like his. Because it wasn't hopeless, I could not have ever lived with myself, letting him go prematurely...they might as well have laid me on the table right along with him, hand in paw. It was a stretch to continue, but we had the means...and hearing things like "are we going to break up our marriage over a dog?"...well, as a matter of fact, it is most definitely headed that way.

I'm sorry to have gotten into all of that...it's just all riding on my heart once again, this morning. You are a sweet sweet person, Bedomom...please don't beat yourself up...Bedo wants you to find your peace. 

Love and hugs,

Buddy's mom

Dear Aunty Elise (Buddy4EVERMom):

My mom and us looked at slides on your link last night.  Buddy is so handsome, he has a friendly face and his eyes are so kind, my mom says that he had her at Hello.I am Bedo's Son but I have a lots of Golden Retriever personalities and I am a big boy too.  I am sure me and Buddy would get along well if I were to know him.  I am very huggable and I love to kiss people and jump to their arms.  Sometimes I like to sit alone at the balcony and look at the back yard, my quiet momment.  My mom always say I look like a pom but in side I am a 100%  just like Buddy .  Aunty Elise, you are a very kind, sweet and loving person too so don't beat yourself up.  You have great love for Buddy and our four legs friends and this is a blessing for us.  For others it is their choices and  it is ok too.  Kind and soft hearted people usually have faith in love and and all their actions are defaulted from the signal of love.  For others it may take times as they have too much to be on guard and worry.  After all fame, beauty, wealth are will all be bygone, only love is everlasting! Buddy knows you will always love him that's all that matters.

Take Care Aunty Elise.

lots of hugs and kisses from
Bowie and the gang and Bedomom

P.S, you can see me on mom's profile, I am a big white guy sitting beside the pear tree.

Dear Elise ~

There never seems to be enough words to convey how sympathetic we all feel when it comes to sharing the loss of one of our very own fur babies. I’ve found that each of our stories are exceptional & unique. What makes us all similar; on the exact same ground? Our sorrow & the depth of that sorrow. You’ve come to the right place to find unconditional support & kindness. When I lost my soul mate kitty Rusty in 2008, it was this place, petloss.com that got me through my darkest days. Not my friends; not my family, but strangers, whom I now lovingly call friends. And when I lost Rusty’s sister last year, it was petloss.com again that helped me through another terribly sad time in my life.

I’m so sorry to hear about your Buddy & I do hope you keep coming back to share stories & memories with all of us.

Much love & peace to your heart.

Dear Sweet Little Nephew, 

Thank you for looking at the slides of Buds - you saw a lot of yourself in him I know! You ARE a big boy...and so cute beside the pear tree! Mom must be so proud of you, baby love! I can see how much you and Buddy have in common...kindred kind spirits always know each other, even from a distance. You are a most huggable little fellow...I can see you jumping into arms for hugs and kisses!

I see you are very wise, little nephew...for what you say about people who don't have that special connection...worry, fear and all the other blocks that stop them from feeling too deeply...it is sad but as you say, it is OK. We lead and leave our mark on the world through our example of love. This is what you four legged beauties do so well...we have a lot of catching up to do, we two-legged's! It is so true what you say...the things that hold little meaning in the world - fame, wealth, possessions...all go by the wayside compared to love...it is the Eternal Force for good...thank you so much for reminding me of that! 

You take care, too...little one with a big heart - many hugs to you, your mom and your whole family!

Thank you.

Aunty Esa,

Dear Allison Rusty's Mom, 

Thank you so much for your kind words of sympathy and support - I agree, that all of our stories are very individual and exceptional. But as you say, we have common ground in that we feel the depth of this sorrow to such an extent, are wanting to learn the art of unconditional love that our babies are the masters of, and wanting to give back, even through our own despair, words of hope and encouragement to others who are feeling the same. I talked with my sister last night - although it sounds like a cliche, I believe she is correct when she says that things happen for a reason. Many times, especially early on, we are often blind as to the reasons why...but in my own experience, more understanding comes as time passes. I think Buddy led me to this place...it is now part of my life's journey to share his beautiful life...this little ambassador of love and sweetness, with others who would never have known him otherwise, and to hopefully give some comfort to others who have lost their beloved soul baby(s).

I look forward to discovering more about your sweet Rusty baby, LuluBelle, Bingo, Woodstock, Bam Bam, Maybe and Picasso, and your special times with them. I hope you are doing much better now, and that you have been able to put much of your pain in its proper place, with the help of your dear friends here at petloss. 

Thank you so much,

Hugs,

Elise, Buddy's mom 4ever...

Dear Elise ~

When I first started visiting this forum, I’d read about how it’s about “time” & I would just bawl my eyes out & shake my head furiously never believing for a minute that I’d ever get over the agonizing pain & sorrow. But I was wrong. “Time” has this magical quality of working secretly, without us ever knowing it’s happening. One day I realized that the sharp pain I had in my gut wasn’t as sharp; the anguishing tears had slowed & I wasn’t sad 24 hours a day. I remember counting down the days to the first anniversary of Rusty’s having to leave me & I dreaded it so much because I couldn’t believe that an entire year had passed me by. But then it was year 2, 3, 4 & then 5. How did I get here? But that’s the thing about “time” ~ it keeps moving forward, never once slowing or providing us a second to catch our breath. “Time” shows us a new universe; one without our beloved babies & one with new friends (furry & human.)

I agree with your sister (cliché as it may be,) “things do happen for a reason.” I’m a true believer in serendipity. We’ve all been drawn to this safe haven, often asking “why,” but in the end, resigning to the fact that we probably won’t ever have that answer.

It’s a wonderful way to look at it . . . being here, sharing our babies with one another . . . keeping their spirits & memories alive.

I’ve never posted about our girl Bingo (our 1st Bernese Mountain Dog.) She lived from 1998-2002 ~ a very short life. It was a heartbreaking experience (as they all are, right?) You can find a posting thread on Rusty titled “A Million Heart Kisses” (the 2 page version.) And LuluBelle has a posting titled “LuluBelle ~ My Rusty is no longer without his kitty sister.” They are my sweet loves & I miss them terribly. “Time” can & will never change that.

Wishing you much peace.

Dear Allison, 

Thank you for sharing your insights regarding "time" - what you say is very true, and it is helpful to hear those words, as you have spoken them. I know some of the feelings will shift, as time continues to push forward, offering new experiences and relationships. Buddy was and will always be such a part of me, this much I know. Right now it is very difficult, as I feel like my heart has literally left my body, and there is just this empty aching cavity left behind. He would ride in the car next to me in the front seat...(probably not the safest place for him to be, but as we live in the country, there's little traffic)...and he would either have his head on my lap, or even his chin on my chest, always wanting constant touch and contact. He had these little ways about him that were so endearing...like insisting on kisses before taking his food...(can you imagine - a golden?). Depending on how hungry he was, it might be just one kiss, but if he was feeling a bit needy, it would take quite a few kisses before he'd be ready to eat! He had us trained very well. Being a rescue pup, he needed and craved love and affection more than anything. He was always grateful for all the love that came his way, and loved showering everyone he met with his affection.

I never knew how good I had it with him always at my side - a constant sweet presence day in and day out, until now. 

Thank you for referencing your thread about Rusty and also LuluBelle - I look forward to reading about your sweet children. You are so right - time will never change the fact that we miss them terribly, as they become such a part of us.

Thank you for your wishes of peace - I also wish the same for you, 

Elise, Buddy's mom

Hi Melanie, 

Thank you kindly for your post - it is so nice to receive your thoughts for comfort and peace, just before trying to sleep again. Thank you for the compliment regarding Buds, yes he is a handsome lad! That picture was taken at the family cottage, where he loved to romp and play...(especially tracking down the little fishes along the shoreline, although it's questionable whether he ever managed to catch one or not!) I plan to upload more pictures of him soon. 

I have been secretly admiring your baby Lee Lee...she is a beautiful girl with a very expressive face and kind sweet eyes. I can see why she has won your heart, utterly and completely! 

Thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts - I am most grateful. 

Best,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Hi Bud Bud, 

Well, mommy tried to sleep, but no luck...just more tears tonight. Just looked at your cousin Joelee's FB page, and she's changed her cover page to a beautiful close up of your deep brown eyes honey...she misses you so much, baby. I keep asking myself...how did we lose you like this? Why did you have to go so soon...leave our family when there are so few of us? Could I have saved you and prevented this from happening? I'm so sorry Bud...I know if it's my fault this happened, you will forgive me...I know you already have and would tell mom there's nothing to forgive. I miss our hugs and kisses so much...miss how you would press your head into me and make those little emotional sounds of yours and I would say, "he's so 'motional'". I miss you at the treat door, giving you your Buddy Biscuits or your little cheesy treats that you loved and would get so excited for...(I could get you to follow me anywhere with those in my pocket, not that you didn't anyway!)...miss you everywhere I look. I remember how you loved to come barreling down the hill by the side of the house, sometimes even if you weren't chasing a frisbee! You would run so fast...the first thing I did when we moved here was put up that little rail fence, so you wouldn't keep running and accidentally fly over the steep part of the yard toward the lake...

I missed you all day today, Lamb. Outside, working on the property and you not there to fetch and chew your sticks, go for a little tour and then come back and find me again. I found one of your sticks with your teeth marks - it's in the garage and I'm going to put it with your other things, and I have more of them from your special spot by the dock, you know...the big clump you climbed up on, after swimming for them - the perfect spot you enjoyed chewing them up on? And here John and I built you a special doggy ramp, thinking it would make it easier for you to get out of the water after fetching your sticks but no, you wanted that darned clump instead! Sweet furry headed thing!

I hope you are happy, my lovely boy. As Lee Lee's mom says, we are one day closer to being together again...


Here's a picture of you Bud, that your foster mom Kendra took of you, not long after you were rescued...they think you were about a year old then:

[youngbuddy]

Love you 4ever Lammie...please send mommy another little sign one of these days, when you take a little break from playing...I found your tennis ball in the woodshed (but not where it was...hmm) so I guess you want me to bring it with me when I come...Done. 

xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox 4EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Sweet Little Nephews Laughin and Bo,

Thank you so much for your kind affectionate note! I know you are right, your dad Bedo and his cousin Buddy are playing and enjoying the meadows and fields. They have many new friends now, and I know you miss you dad, too...but he is happy now and is sending you lots of love from heaven.

I try not to worry too much, little ones...try to push the regrets off into a corner but then they come creeping back anyway. It's so silly, the way we humans think...why we can't just be more like you...we are really very silly, although many of us think we are so smart and superior. Ha!

Please tell your mom her English is just right, and that it has lots of character!

Love you guys...big hugs from Auntie Elise in Ontario!

xoxoxoxoxo!

Dear Auntie Bedomom,

I am so happy you and my mommy have a special connection, through me and Beed Beed. I think 2006 was the year I was born, but I don't really know my exact birthday. Bedo is sending you lots of hugs and kisses - he is so much fun to play with! We are meeting lots of new friends, and having lots of yummy food...I love my new little cousin Beed Beed!

Thank you for reminding my mom that I am by her side - I always was, and I always will be. Bedo wants you to know he is always very close beside you always, too. He loves you with all of his heart and he doesn't want you to be sad for him..."just be happy for me mom", he wants me to tell you...and my mom too...be happy again soon!

I love the song you wrote for me...I know it will mean a lot to mom, to feel the words in that song and of course, she will cry because she's a softie. She is sad right now, because there are times when she left me alone, but I did go with her a lot of the time, and when she did leave me at home, she always looked forward to seeing me...and me too...I loved it when she came home for me!! I would usually go a little crazy when I knew she had come home...because our special time together would begin again, just like it will when we see each other next, my sweet auntie but the best part? We will never have to say good-bye again!

Love You Auntie Bedomom,

Bud Bud

xoxoxoxoxo!!! 4EVER from Heaven

Hi Boo Boo,

It's mommy here, letting you know I wrote you a letter in the middle of the night last night, and it's on its way to heaven right now. I needed to write down all my biggest regrets, baby, and ask your forgiveness. But I also wrote about some of our happy times, too, and all of the little things you did to put a smile on my face! I know you'll say there's nothing to forgive, but I wanted to ask you anyway...you are such a good boy and I sure could use a Buddy hug right now!

I feel a little better, after writing to you. It helped getting them out of my head and it lifted my heart a little bit. I just hope it isn't too heavy reading for you...it's some pretty serious stuff but I know you - you're a strong boy and you want to help mom through this hardship time. It isn't all about playing for you kids up there...all pups love to have a purpose and a job or two to do, so I have a feeling some of your purpose is helping mom to heal. You were always a healer when here on earth with us. You healed all of us in our family, all the time, just by your sweet presence and all of the fun things you would do...you rescued us, as much as we rescued you!

I wanted to share a little video - a happy one I found of you and Coco playing in the doggy park. You were too cute holding onto that stick together...who was going to get it?! It was so cute, how you were playing keep away with it...such a tease! Then, when you laid down in the field for a nice long chew on it, she gave you the business all right..."rrrrrffff rrrrrffff - come and play with me, Bud!"

When I see that meadow in the video, I know there is one just like it up in heaven, where you are right now Buddy, with many sweet animals playing beside you. Bedo is there, LeeLee, Rambo, PeeWee, and all the rest of the boys and girls here at petloss...and I would imagine you will be chasing a few kitties, too...there's one special fellow by the name of Rusty, if you haven't met him yet...but as you know, they are all very special. You would never hurt the kitties, but you sure loved to tease them and chase them around!

Hope this brings back nice memories for you baby, of your fun times here on earth with Coco and mommy at the doggy park!

Elise,
The video had Made My Day! Buddy is just too cute and strong, he is winning all the times.  Bud Bud a Big Chief and Little Bedo is just a Little Indian! Well except Lee Lee who is also so Triumphant!  You see Elise, this is how we should remember our babies and this is how they are now in Heaven, playing forever like that.  I can just visualize how they are from the video and I thank you for sharing it.  I  love all those beautiful Angels as my Bedo and feel all others' losses as mine.  This energy somehow viberate and has  has made me feel better.  After all, love is never selfish but sharing. Between me and you, even though Bedo had lived in Vancouver for almost 7 years, he still had a Mississauga microchip so he is still considered an Ontarian.  He is more closer to Buddy now.
Hugs and kisses to Buddy Boy!

Elise,
That is a wonderful video, a precious memory for you to hold in your heart.  That is the perfect example of pure joy - the way only our angels can understand and appreciate it - living only in the moment and enjoying it to the fullest. I am so glad you shared it. I agree, that is how they are now in heaven.

And thank you Elise and Bedomom both for including my Lee Lee - it always make my heart flutter a bit - skip a beat to see her name - That's kind of silly I know...but it make me happy that she crosses someone's mind.

I hope you both have a peaceful evening with good memories of your babies filling your thoughts. Hugs

Hi Bedomom,

I am so happy that the little video of Buddy and Coco playing made your day! Wasn't it cute how he played "keep away" from Coco? Then she got mad at him toward the end, when he was lying down, hogging the stick all to himself and she's barking at him, trying to get him to play with her? What a little man. I have a few others ones, too - some at the cottage with them rough housing, and also at the Ottawa house, when we lived there. I also have some of him playing with his friends Riley and Katie. I am lucky to have quite a few videos of Buddy - sometimes they are very hard to watch, as I want to hug him and be with him so much, but as you say, it is for us to think of them like this - eternally young, strong, playing and precious in every moment! I love how you say Buds is Big Chief, Bedo is Little Indian and Lee Lee Triumphant! All our Heaven kids are triumphant and happy, and want us to be the same. So nice that Buddy and Bedo have the Ontario connection, Big Brother and Little Brother together!

Hugs and Kisses to all of your babies, heaven and earth!

Elise

Hi Melanie,

I am so glad you found this little video uplifting! Isn't it the best, to envision them like this? We were fortunate to live close by to this huge doggy park - there's a large acreage there - a nice mix of fields and trees, and Bud just loved to go there and run free - so many places to sniff out and explore! He had many fun trips to the park.

I know what you mean about a "heart flutter" when seeing Lee Lee's name in print - I feel the same way when it comes to someone remembering or mentioning Bud. It is one of the many reasons why this place is so special, as we continue to honor and cherish our beloved connections to our babies.

Wishing you peace and love,

Elise

Hi Bud Bud,

Six weeks ago today, Sunday morning, we said our earthly good-byes to each other. It still breaks my heart, looking into those big beautiful brown eyes of yours, as you found your angel wings. I love you so much honey.

Have a sweet day at the Bridge, my beautiful Boo Boo.

Love you 4EVER...miss you for a little while...soon to be together again...one day closer.

I checked out your memorial for Buddy and it's so sweet.  I know how lost you are without this beautiful and special boy in your life.  Six weeks without him probably seems like a lifetime.  My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hi Mare-wolf, 

Thank you so much for taking the time to view Buddy's memorial...yes, I am quite lost without him close by. It is very hard right now - trying to deal with some regrets but they are haunting.

Thank you for your kind thoughts and prayers.

Dear Elise,
I am glad that you are feeling better and have been passing your possitive thoughts to us at this difficult times.  Please keep up the goodworks, so proud of you!  I am sure The Big Chief and My Little Idian are looking down From the Above and  both are very proud of his Mom and Auntie.  I believe through pain we can still find humour!  I don't know why it must be genetically passed from my dad! he is in heaven too, he did not speak much English and used to tell people that "No work, No Job, No rice, No Money" ...and at other time, he was laughing while telling a neighbor's daughter: "Farren, when I was sleeping, you Bang Bang my house 3 times" (she was playing and throwing object to the Vynal wall of our house).
 
Hugs
Bedomom

Hi Bedomom,

Thank you for dropping by today - yes, our babies are looking down with their loving eyes and spirits, hoping that we do find some laughter, amidst the painful emotions we still carry in our hearts.

Both our dads are in heaven - mine is probably playing piano in a big band - he was a music teacher and active musician for many years, and was known for his famous smiles! I like your dad's saying...simple, short and to the point!

Hope you are feeling better as time passes - for me some moments better than others, but still a very long road ahead as there were many painful circumstances surrounding Buddy's passing...but as my friend Linda says, "time wounds all heels"...(of course, it is really the other way around!).

Hugs,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Hi Jenny,

Thank you for writing and for your sympathies. Yes, he's quite the beautiful boy, but of course I am biased! I will keep writing letters to the little man - glad you enjoy reading them. He is my heart.

Love and Hugs,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Elise,
I was reading the comments from you and Bedomom about your Dads.  My dear Daddy has passed into eternal life also - many years ago - I was 12 when he left.  Of course he and Lee Lee never met in this life, but I believe they have found each other now and that gives me comfort.  My Dad was joyful and loved to tease and Lee Lee was my silly little girl - I like to imagine that they are on the "Entertainment Crew".  I hope you are doing okay tonight - my thoughts are with you.

Bedomom, your Dad was a very wise man - this world would be better off if everyone adopted his way of thinking....

Hugs ladies...
Melanie (Lee Lee's Mama)

Dear Melanie,

What a wonderful way to visualize the happiness and joy that your dear Daddy and Lee Lee are sharing together, and giving to others! My dad also never met Buddy - he passed in 2005 from a long bout with cancer, but I know Buddy has found him and is comforting him, letting him know we are all OK and looking forward to our Great Reunion. That is so wonderful, that you have precious memories of your Daddy as a joyful man who loved to tease. My Dad too, never a harsh word...never raised his voice or lost his temper, never complained. Sometimes he would get a little impatient with himself when it came to doing mechanical stuff (he wasn't a natural with tools) but other than that, very easy going fellow and fun to be around.

That gives me an idea - maybe my Dad and Buddy are also on the "Entertainment Crew"...maybe everyone gets to take a turn!

Thank you so much for your kind thoughts Melanie - my thoughts are also with you, as I pray for you, Bedomom and the other wonderful souls here who are hurting, who need healing and hope.

Hugs,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Hi MaxsMandD,

Thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to get to know my furbaby a little bit. I love the thought of our first embrace at the Bridge. What a happy day that will be!

Hugs to you, too,

Elise, Buddy's mom

Dear BuddysMom
Thank you for your kind thoughts.  Your sweet nephews say hi and they hope their sweet Auntie is you doing better as time goes bye.  Laughing and Bowie had always fought prior to Bedo's trip, now they get along ok.  I believe the kids mature through certain experience and time just like us two legs.  Yes Bedo had always was a very special dog, to me he was very much like a human being - I am blessed to feel all the sweet memories we have shared in a very comforting ways, and deep inside my heart I know he is always with me.
It is nice to know that your dad is a piano teacher, that is very cool..I had always wish that I were born from a family with muscial background as I love singing so much, our family like art in general but we don't have the privilege of making that into a profession.  My dad loved to trim trees/bushes into different animal shapes/gathered special flowers as he loved gardening.  Our dads, and the Big "B" and Little "b" are in heaven now imagine your dad playing piano, in my dad's beautiful garden (he would spent a fortune for flowers and trees) with Buddy and Lee Lee  running around while Bedo and Max are enjoying their homemade chicken soups - How beautiful and blessing is that?
Hugs

Dear Bedomom, 

What a beautiful vision you paint with your words...your dad is a true artist with his hands and imagination - his passion for plants and flowers springs eternal! Wish that I could paint such a scene! I can see my dad at his piano in your dad's garden, with Big B and Little B playing close by, never far away from the other happy kids like Lee Lee and Max! Hmmm....I'll bet there are many furry babies enjoying the chicken soups...Buddy especially loved chicken, and he loved his cooked egg in the mornings...(with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese...he loved his Parm!). 

Please give sweet nephews hugs from Auntie Esa, and hugs to you too, their sweet mom! They are good boys and have learned many lessons through life's experience, and it shows by their better behaviors now. 

Wishing you much peace and comfort, as you cherish your memories of sweet little 'B'...knowing that he never leaves your side. 

Hugs,

Buddy's mom

Hi Bud Bud, 

You have been on mom's heart and in her thoughts all day today, honey. I was thinking back, when we stayed at Gram's in 2008 for Halloween and we were part of Joelee's 6th grade Halloween parade at school. Remember you wore your special Dogula costume that Joelee picked out for you? You were such a hit with the kids! You didn't mind it, except for the hat - you just would not wear that hat for anything! I know it wasn't very comfortable, and mom was trying to figure out how to get it to stay on your head but we finally gave up, eh? But it was OK, because you were so good looking in your black cape, with your beautiful golden fur coat for accent! 

This is our first Halloween apart Bud, and mommy is missing you so much. You loved to greet the kids when they came to the door...you loved to say hi and they would always pet you and talk to you. That was your sweet curious side always coming out, baby, and the kids knew how much you loved to see them and loved to be petted. 

Will post one of your pictures in the Dogula costume tomorrow, Bud Bud, as I didn't get it uploaded soon enough for today. You have many friends here Sweetness...many dear pet parents who want to meet you when they come to the Bridge, and I know you have made friends with their sweet fur babies who were there before you, and that you continue to meet many more babies, as they join you in Heaven.

I know you are happy, sweet son...sending you lots of hugs, kisses, cuddles and treats.

Love You 4EVER Sweet Buddy Son,

mommy

Hi Boo Boo, 

I have the picture of you now, in your Dogula costume to share with your friends and pals here. I know it isn't a very good close-up of you, but it was the best one I could find, and it shows the beautiful wave in your tail! Love you, Bud Bud 4EVER and ALWAYS.

Dear Buddy,
You are so cute in that costume, but I  wish you would have listened to mom to leave the hat on...  The wave of your tail is so beautiful you, were always a boy in action and could not wait to have a blast at haloween right? I can tell.  Oh baby, your mom loves you so much, I feel her love for you just grow deeper and deeper as time goes bye.  I know she is doing better as you are a dim of light in her heart that keep her going and going.  You are such a sweetboy and so Budy Budy and I know you always will be with mom and watch out for her.  I hope you guys had fun last night, The Little B may have his Colorful Chinese Silk Jacket for Halloween, unlike you, He would sit still and let me put whatever on him.
Hugs to you Beautiful Boy and your sweet mom.
Auntie Bedomom
