It is with great sadness that I announce that our little dog, Buddy was put to rest this morning.
For those that do not know, Buddy was found by my dad and step-mother in their neighbor's yard. They already had a dog and weren't looking to get another. But, then again neither were we! However, Buddy entered our lives and was a great dog right from the start.
He was lethargic and had been throwing up the past couple of days. I thought he may have a little bug, so lead sous chef and I took him to the vet. After some blood work, they diagnosed that he was suffering from severe kidney failure.
I feel horrible that I didn't take him sooner. I'll always keep wondering what it was that caused it.
He spent the night at the animal hospital getting fluids. This morning the vet told Jordan that we could keep going, but the prognosis would likely not improve.
Hopefully he is having fun out there in doggy heaven. Perhaps he has found Scamp (his uncle) and they are running around together, eating bubbles, picking up on ladies, and causing trouble.
Maybe he is reliving his wild time at the Puppy Ball.
But, I'll bet he is sleeping...he always did that well.
Goodbye, friend, we'll miss you.
**I'd like to give credit to Josh Solar Photo for the two pictures in this post that I borrowed from his blog. The Solars have been taking photos of my two kiddos since lead sous chef was 3 months old. We now have priceless pictures of our dear Buddy which Josh took when second sous chef was 3 months old. Thank you, Solars.**
