Our beloved Bubba, aka Diesel, came to us from CPR in 2005. He crossed over the rainbow bridge on August 25,2013. His funniest ways of making us laugh, snuggling close when we had some personal losses, combined with his love of everything and everyone he came in contact with made him the best puggie! The entire neighborhood knew who Bubba was and loved him because he always wanted to visit with everyone when he walked his mom and dad, or got invited to holidays and parties. And he had as many friends on Facebook as his mom had. (I think a lot of her friends were her FB friends because of Bubba the Pug!) When mom would come home after a short trip – even to the store – he’d yell “MAAAMMMAAA!!” while dancing around and around until he got a big hug and kisses. And OH, how he loved his road trips! He had his special bed in the car, and off we’d go to explore camping, the beach and visiting family.

He was diagnosed with diabetes last year after suffering a few seizures. He never complained about getting his injections, or having his diet altered. He tried so hard to be a good brave boy. When we learned his seizures couldn’t be controlled he looked into his daddy’s eyes and said “I can’t do this anymore, but I love you,” and went quietly over the Bridge where we know he met his sister Paula, who welcomed him with her big heart.

Bubba, we were so blessed to have had you in our lives. Everything we do is a little sadder because you are not here. We so miss you sweetie, but we know you are no longer in pain, or afraid of the seizures. And we will see you again, with your big wide grin, laughing and jumping with the joy we’ll all feel.

Love, Mom, Dad and all your furry and people friends
