Memories of Buster
Oh Dear Buster (Butter Brown) as daddy called you,

We adopted you from 11th Hr Rescue in January 2006. You were in a foster home with several other dogs that you loved to play with, especially Linda's dog Colin. You were so very timid. You growled at me when you were in the crate but you felt comfortable on your 'Magic Carpet.' I then brought you home to our zoo and you fit right in. We had foster dogs that came and went and some antagonized you, especially Chloe who then became your sister. She loved you but had to bust your chops all the time and you would get mad and show your teeth at her and that made her bug you even more. It was quite funny to watch. I hope she met you at the bridge and is showing you the ropes in your new home.

You loved to come to work with mommy and lay by my side the entire time. You also loved riding in the truck and back seat of the car. You loved hoarding toys at Christmas and then ripping them apart. This past year was rough. November 2013, you were diagnosed with Lyme Disease and then you had an arched back for two months. The doctors couldn't figure out what that was from so we kept you confined to a crate and no stairs for a bit and that seemed to have done the trick. You were then diagnosed with Addisons disease. We treated you with Prednisone for a while and you did well until that day this August when I found lumps in your neck. I immediately brought you to work for an exam and blood work and the next day the results showed 'Lymphoma' a word I did not want to hear. You have to treat that as soon as possible so I started you on chemo at my other job and you did so well for weeks and the lumps went down. On those days I took you to McDonalds for a cheeseburger and chicken nuggets that you loved so much. You were your normal self for over 2 months until we woke up that Tuesday morning and you wouldn't eat and was not yourself. The next day was the same thing. I'm so glad daddy was home that day because you had a seizure then couldn't walk so he put you in the car and brought you to my other job and then you didn't make it. We were heartbroken. You still had so much life left. You were such a good boy and just wanted attention and gave us your paw all the time. I added several vitamins to your diet to try and slow down the cancer but it didn't work. We are heart broken and miss you terribly. Rest in peace, sweet boy. Behave in your new home and we will see you again some day. Until then, have fun playing with your brothers and sisters. We love you.

Love,

Mommy, Daddy, and all the Furry Kids

10/29/15 - Sweet Buster Boy, I can't believe it's a year today we lost you. I've lit a candle each month on this anniversary in your loving memory. I hope you met Pop-Pop, Mabes, Lexy, Uncle Huckles, and Spunky at the bridge. It's been a rough year losing so many of my fur kids. You all have a special place in mommy's heart. I hope you are all together and getting along and having fun. I love you sweet boy. Run free and we'll see each other again some day.

Love,

Mommy, Daddy, and all the Furry Kids

10/29/16 - Oh Buster Brown, 2 years this late afternoon we lost you. I have a candle on right now and will light one when we go to bed. We have been lucky and have not lost a fur baby in over a year. Uncle Harry has a heart condition and Dexter still has his issues but both seem to be doing well. I'm so sorry that you got Lymphoma. It happened so fast and we tried to help you and it worked for 2 months. You were a very special boy and love to jump up on us if we were standing or sitting on the deck. Some day we will see all of you again. Until then, please know we love you!

Love,

Mommy, Daddy, and all the Furry Kids

10/29/17 - Hi my sweet dear Buster Brown, 3 years ago this afternoon we lost you. I have 2 candles going right now in your memory. I hope you greeted Boots and Dexter at the bridge. Please show them around and reunite them with everybody. I can't believe how many of you are gone. You each took a piece of my heart. Some days I just want to leave this earth and be with all of you where there is always happiness and no sickness. Uncle Harry has been doing well on his heart medicine. So many of your brothers/sisters are up there in age now. It doesn't get any easier. Your brother Moby has anal gland cancer. We have been trying to help him. You know we do all we can to help our babies. We love you all! Run free and please know we will always love you and see you soon.

Love,

Mommy, Daddy, and all the Furry Kids

Please also visit Boots, Caley, Casey, Chloe, Dexter, Dolly, Hannah, Huckleberry Hound, Lexy, Mabelline, Morty, Parker, Simba and Spunky.
