RIP my son, we love you!

Last week we had to put our four legged son to sleep. He was 12 years, 1 month and 4 days old. At 10 1/2 Buddy was struck down with disc rupture injury in 3 places, and was no longer able to make use of his hind legs. Together, we fought, and fought and never gave up. We even went on 2 road trips, visited 6 states and traveled more than 6000 miles. Last Friday (8/30/19) his body gave in

Farewell for now my son. We love and misses you every single day.

So sorry to hear this. He seemed like he was a great dog and those eyes have so much soul. Glad you got to do so much even when he was limited. At least you can rest easy knowing you fought till the end with him. RIP.

So sorry for your loss. Run free little one, no more pain!

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand you’re hanging on to your dog’s body because you’ve lost his mind!

Sorry for your loss. They just don't live long enough. I'm glad he's out of pain and running free.

When a dog saves the life of a man, it becomes clear that partnership knows no bounds.

What a beautiful dog, and what a wise sweet face.

You will rejoin him on the other side eventually.

If you hear his toenails clicking on the floor at night or catch fleeting glimpses of him, you are not going crazy. He is still with you.
