Buffy Pug, a rescue, came into our lives 10 years ago at the age of 10 (which I doubt now). She waltzed into our kitchen, set down her suitcase, wet on the floor (which she never has done again until yesterday) and told us she was staying. So we've had ten years of love and sweetness from Ms. Buffy who had only one eye when she came and sagging from years of producing Pug puppies. When she left us this afternoon to travel to the Bridge, she was blind in both eyes, deaf, still sagging tummy, severely tilted head from Vestibular Syndrome (it hit her last night), could not chew, and to my surprise, the vet found spinal problems. She was just at the vet's 3 weeks ago and she could get along fairly well, esp. when she had MetaCam. Her loss is a great one, she was a great little friend, my devoted companion and she had learned to press her little nose against my leg to find me no matter where I was. Lately she was scared to go down and up steps so my DH carried her out and in. She is deeply missed by the Boston Terrier, my other Pug and the Papillion mix as she mothered them all. Love you so much Buffy and I'm anxious to get you home again in your pretty little urn. We will be joined forever someday.
Joanne and now Pugless. My heartdog, Lulu Pug, waits at the Bridge along with Josie and Jasmine, Boston Terriers, Annie, Phoebe and Buffy, all rescues except for Josie and Lulu. I miss you all so much, my little furry friends. You are living always in my heart and mind. Slumber on, girls. Now living with Ivy, a Boston Terrier, and Sassy, rescue Papillion/Doxie.
