Buddy: August 28, 1997 - March 12, 2005

Buddy's collar Our dog Buddy died peacefully in our arms this morning.

The whole thing happened very quickly.  Starting about 6 weeks ago his appetite faded, then he barely ate anything, at first we didn't mind since he was a little overweight, then we became concerned, took him to the vet, found he had lost 20 lbs, but the vet found nothing, blood tested okay, we tried a wide variety of foods to see if he would eat anything, still he didn't eat, he lost more weight, we took him to the vet again Tuesday, she did an abdominal ultrasound and found tumors all over, in his pancreas, liver, spleen, and the really bad news is that it's inoperable.  His condition worsened over the last four days.

He's been the most wonderful dog there ever was, and we miss him terribly.

Buddy -

I'm so glad I got to meet you! You brought a lot of joy to your family and friends.

Don - do you still have Buddy's puppy pictures? The ones of you, Nancy, Buddy and Pumpkin in front of the fireplace for the holidays were/are so great. I know there's still a lot of other good pics posted, of Buddy and the twins.

Your bud,

You look like you where a very sweet dog buddy and I wish I could have met you and I am sorry for your parents lose. My dog Shotsi died of cancer, it started in her foot, we really didn't want to cut off her leg, but then they found out it had spread to her liver too and we couldn't afford the surgery. I was sad for a long time. I got a knew dog about 1 year after shotsi died, and I named him buddy too.

I wish you guys the best
Love Aaliyaha
