Butch, my crazy funny loving fur baby You are now across Rainbows Bridge, and you are once again a beautiful young puppy full of life without pain and carefree. You can smell all the pretty flowers Eat whatever you want, even the flowers, and all the stuff that Doctors say you cannot have. You can do whatever pleases you. I know that by now, you are playing with Heidi and getting re acquainted.. Look for Kat..and Flash.. They are there... I am sure you Heidi and Kat have a lot of catching up to do... You will always be missed and loved. Thank you my friend for all the wonderful years you gave us, for all the laughs, the craziness and for all the unconditional love. I will especially miss you in the kitchen waiting for me to drop a tid bit or two. I have to take comfort in knowing that you are with all the ones you loved and knew while you were with me and Barry. I also have to take comfort in knowing that I did what was best for you and for me. I know that if you could talk and share your thoughts with me you would say:|
"If it should be that I grow frail and weak, And pain should wake me from my sleep,

Dear Butch.... It has been one month since you left us and the memories and pain still lingers. It was such a sad day for all of us when I got your ashes back. You are now sitting beside Heidi and I look at you everyday. Sadie, your pal that you left behind misses you very much. We take her with us a lot, and she loves the car rides. But she is still adjusting to you not being around. Because you were such a great companion, and crazy and unique fur baby, the house is so much emptier without you. I know that the pain will ease with the passing of time, but you will never be forgotten. I will always remember how you clung to us the first time we picked you up. You were 12 weeks old and abandoned with your sister at the SPCA. What a lucky day for us. I fell in love with your huge big black eyes that seemed to look through me. I also remember how frightened you were when we first brought you to your new home and to meet Heidi.. You were so young that you thought she was your mother... At first Heidi wanted no part of you, and you looked so sad and alone.... But you both soon became the best of friends. The years that past after that were wonderful years and you were a part of those wonderful years. Heidi always loved to terrorized and chase Kat whenever she could.. and you always followed... When Heidi had to leave us, you were again alone and frightened. I really do not think that you ever grew up.. You were always the happy little clown that always needed attention. Then came Sadie... I know that she was not Heidi, but she is also, like you, unique. She loved Kat and always licked her clean. Kat, was so confused always being chased by Heidi, but finaly gave in and enjoyed Sadie's licking massages. Even you learned to like Kat... It was wondereful that you all became Buds. But nothing is constant, only change. Kat left us, and then you left us and all that's left is Me, Barry and Sadie. So Butch, like me, my heart is too old and has been broken too many times saying good bye to my loved ones....... I know now, that I loved you, as you loved me. Unconditionally. I can never find that again.. But I also have to let you go, because keeping you alive in my heart is too painful... You will always be my baby and you will always have my unconditional love. So until we meet again at Rainbows Bridge... Keep Heidi company and tell her to be nice to Kat.... Play together and be the happy crazy baby I will always remember...

Butch.... Had to stop by today to let you know that Ricky, one of my dearest friend's fur baby just crossed over Rainbows Bridge today and is looking for some friends. He is lonesome and frightened and needs a friend like you to show him around. I know that you will be the best of freinds. You, Hiedi, Flash and Kat. And now Ricky. Kat will be glad to have one of her own in the crowd. I still miss you so. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you and wish that you were here with me. Sadie still looks for you all over the house. I know that she misses you as much as I do. This may be one of the last times that I write. It just makes me too sad. I will visit you often, and keep you forever in my heart and forever love you... Papa
Butch.... Was thinking of you today as I do every day and just wanted to stop by and say hello. I also wanted to say that I wish you were still with me. I never realized how much I would miss you after you were gone. I take Sadie almost everywhere with me. She is doing ok... she clings to me and follows me everywhere just like you did. I often wonder if she misses you as we do. I hope that you are happy and have found Heidi and Kat to keep you company. I will try to stop by from time to time, but always remember I think of you every day and you are still a very big part of my heart. I will never forget you and will always love you........... Papa

Butch... It has been 9 months and I still think of you each day and wish that you were here with me. Sadie is OK, she sleeps a lot. Especially now that it is winter and too cold to play and snif around outside. This will be our first Christmas without you. I know that you are OK and that you have made a lot of friends and well and happy. Knowing that is comfort for me. Well my little Butch, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I still miss and love you very much. Papa.

Butch, It is hard to believe that it has been one year today that we had to say good bye. There has not been one day that went by without our thinking of you and missing you at our sides. Sadie is still with us and I know that she still misses having you around to keep her company. I hope that you have found comfort, peace and tranquility at Rainbows Bridge. We think of you often and with both happiness and sadness in our hearts..... I love you .... Papa

Butch, It has been over a year and a half that you went to your resting place at Rainbows Bridge. But that has not changed the loss and the love that you still command in my heart. Sadie has adjusted well, and she seems to be ok being alone. But unlike you, Sadie is more independent and likes to be the lone wolf.... You always needed a little extra attention and that was what made you so unique and loveable. All I can say is that I still miss you so very much. I have had many fur babies and they all have crossed Rainbows Bridge... but for some unexplainable reason, I have missed you the most......... my eyes tear up and my heart still has an empty spot in it for you. I have to go now, and I will come back one day to chat some more... Until then, stay happy, rest and play with Heidi and Kat.... I love you so much...... Papa........

Butch... You are still missed as much as if it were yesterday that you left us. Christmas is just around the corner and it will always be one stocking and one loving fur baby short of a complete Christmas...... We love and miss you my baby Butch........ Papa

Butch... It will be two years soon that you have been gone. We still talk about you and remember you as if you were still with us. I look at your picture and remember what a good and precious baby you were. Sadie is still here, and getting older and older. You remember her as being all black... now she is getting grayer with each passing day. I hope you are happy and content. Still missing you so much.. Love You... Papa
