This week, I lost my sweet friend, Buddy. He was a gorgeous, incredible, loving, smart and fun horse. My heart is broken. I knew it was coming, but I guess I had hoped he would be with us for one more Summer.
I already miss looking out my back window to make sure he is OK and see how he’s doing. I miss asking him to smile and spoiling him with apples and carrots! He was one in a million!
But most of all, I hurt for my dear friend and neighbor, Crystal. She has had Buddy most of his life. They had a once in a lifetime bond; he was her best friend and companion.
When he was diagnosed with cancer, Crystal put up a sign in his barn that said, “How Wonderful Life Is While You’re in the World.”
She lived each day enjoying every moment they had together and worked hard at giving him everything he needed to have the best and longest life possible. … And she dreaded the day she would have to say goodbye.
Buddy, thank you for being such an amazing fur-baby and for taking such good care of Crystal all of these years. You gave her life so much meaning and unconditional love. Now, watch over her from above and run pain free through the clouds! We will miss you, my friend!
So sorry about your great loss, Sherri. Our pets are like our children, and I’ve lost 2 sons and countless pets. I know your sweet friend, Buddy was a gorgeous, incredible, loving, smart and fun horse.
May he rest in peace on those heavenly clouds with other friends and families. I’m sure God has a corner reserved in Paradise where we’ll visit our lovely pets. Hugs to you and all your family, Sylvia
Thank you so very much, Sylvia! You are such a compassionate friend!
It’s that I love all my pets so much, so I can’t ignore other people’s losses. Another hug from Argentine Patagonia.
So true! Hugs back from Colorado, USA!
