My dear Buddy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on Sunday, February 5, 2017, just one month shy of his 19th birthday. Buddy began as a foster for us back in 2010. He lost his only eye two years ago. He was such a huge part of our daily life. His two favorite things to the end were dinnertime and nestling between my feet in the evenings as we watched TV or read books. There is a huge hole in my heart right now that I do not know how it will ever heal. Even with two other dogs in the house it just feels so empty without him there. My wife Laura spent endless hours rocking him in the chair during the day to help ease his discomfort. We will miss him forever!  –Jim Strouse

    Please accept my condolences. He was lucky to have you in his life, just as you were lucky to share it with him.
