Today my wife and I had to say farewell to Buddy, who was the last of our two Labradors we’ve had long before getting married (and before having kids). Buddy was over 14 years old in human years. Those who have followed my blog for a while will remember that we said Farewell to Bindi back on May 11th 2013.
Buddy was starting to get very old and was showing signs of his age unfortunately. We woke in the middle of the night to find he had got himself stuck on his bed and couldn’t get up. He had also showed signs that he was having trouble trying to stand and/or walk. However this was not always, just that he had some bad days where it was near impossible. We have also been waking up daily to find that he had gone to the loo where he laid.
We decided some weeks back that perhaps it might be kind to let him go now rather then continue to suffer and get worse. Still doesn’t make such a decision easy, however I do hope that he passes to another life and possibly see’s Bindi again whom I know he missed dearly.
We are going to truly miss him and I hope he knows how much we loved him.
