Today is a sad day as mommy had to take our old doggie to cross the bridge. He was a good old dog, our Buddy. A kind and friendly dog to everyone, cats, peeps and other dogs. Even mommy’s pet rat she had a few years ago. She used to walk Buddy with Izzy and Pepper (both kitties who went over the bridge a while ago) and Phoenix the rat would ride on her shoulder. They got a lot of looks by neighbors. Kids thought it was cool though. The whole menagerie got along great.
I was a little afraid of Buddy at first but he just ignored me. Maybe he would have liked me better if I went for walks too but mommy says I am to be an indoor kitty. We might try a harness for walkies or maybe a stroller too so I can go outside. She’s thinking about building me a catio also next spring. That would be awesome cool.
But today we are sad that Buddy is not with us, but we are also glad he is no longer in pain. His legs and hips gave out and he couldn’t walk. This is fairly common in lab/shepherds. This is a picture of Buddy and Izzy when mommy went to Hawaii last year for 9 whole days with her mommy and her brother and his wife. She loved it there but hated the plane ride. My aunty Crystal took this picture and said they were wondering where she was and looking for her. They were great friends.
Anyway, hooray for the rainbow bridge where everyone can be free of pain and watch over those of us still here on earth. We are hoping to meet again some day.
