Your story of Buddy has brought me to tears. Close to our story of my happy, sweet Daisy. We lost her in July 2018 to a sudden and devastating tumor. She never let on that she was in any pain and was so happy until the end. Oh, that last walk...I can still feel her leash in my hand. Though, unlike your Buddy, we prayed for her to pee. (Her tumor was in her urethra) I also held her as she passed. I whispered into her soft gray ears all the wonderful adventures we had over the years together as she quietly passed. I love her so much and miss her still. Even though we have welcomed a new little dog into our lives who we love dearly, Daisy will be always loved and always missed. The heartbreaking loss is the price we pay for such unconditional love and all the years of happiness we share with our companions. I imagine all our beloved companions happy and healthy now. I also hope to someday see my girl again, but for now, I hope she is happily romping with her new "Buddy".
