An Unexpected Goodbye…..


I wrote and scheduled this morning Spring Walk post on Wednesday. What I didn’t know or expect, that it would be Busters last walk and that the following day I would be saying goodbye to Buster for the very last time.

He did seem unusually tiered on Wednesday and Thursday an even bigger change, just so lethargic and disinterested, not aware of his surroundings.

After various Blood Test the Vet told us that his Kidneys had just about failed.

So after much heartache we had to make that decision that no one wants to make….   It was very peaceful.

Buster was a very young dog despite being nearly 16. He was with me everywhere, even has a Chair of his own in my Office….. it seems terribly empty this morning.


RIP Buster you will always be missed.  Goodbye my Pal

Please Remember ….

Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
