Thank you for your response and kind words. I am so glad I reached out for comfort about loosing my pet but I had no idea that others could experience to same level of grief that I have, and I know now that I am not alone. I am thankful that there are people like you who have devoted themselves to the care of our furbabies. May God have a special place in his heart for you and your staff. Teresa Christian

To our Buster:

  I adopted Buster in October of 2001. I drove to Ohio from Michigan to meet him and take him home. He was sitting there next to his foster parents so quietly while all the other dogs barked and carried. Well, he turned out to be quite the actor. I dropped by my brothers home in Bowling Green on the way home and Buster got out of the yard and took off. We looked everywhere and could not find him. Then all of a sudden he comes running up and sits down right next to me. That was our first clue that he was a runner. My nephew was only a year old at the time and Buster laid down on the floor after his adventure, and Daniel walked over and laid on the floor with him putting his head on Buster. Buster never moved and never tried to get away. He was always gentle with the children. Buster loved to play with his toys as a pup, especially the tug toys. He would get them in his mouth and shake them like crazy, growling the whole time as though he were facing down an enemy. One time he was doing this while I was sitting on the couch watching TV. All of sudden something came flying by my head. Buster had shook his toy so hard it went flying across the room and slammed against the wall next to my head. One of his most memorable running adventures was when we were visiting my sister, Beth, and he got out of the house. They live out in the country and though we yelled for him, he would not come to any of us. He just took off down the road and across the fields with myself, my niece and my nephews in hot pursuit. If it had not been for one of the neighborhood boys seeing our plight and cutting Buster off we might have lost him forever. He never really cared for playing with his cousins or his adopted brother, Cooper, but he always gave us a play by play. As they would wrestle and play with each other, he would stand there barking at them. I never could figure out if he was encouraging them or trying to break up the fight. Buster was always very independent, right up to the end. However, in recent years he did become more of a cuddler. He had the softest, silkiest coat and it was a comfort to me to pet him. My heart hurts over his loss but I know that he is no longer in pain. I like to think I will see him in heaven one day. In the meantime I believe he will be running like the wind with Buddy Freckles, Jr. awaiting my arrival. And when we do meet again it will seem like only a moment has passed.
