It all started when Buddy tore a ligament in his knee and needed surgery. He was 12 years old and my gut said that surgery was a really bad idea. I was so afraid he would not survive. But he came thru just great, and was recovering well. And then, little more than a week later, it all went bad - fast!
They tell me there is no connection to the surgery, even though they don't really know what happened. None of the blood tests or x-rays pointed to anything specific. But one week from when he started to look bad and act different, he was hemorrhaging into his belly, started convulsing and it was too late to save him.
I feel so much anger, and so much pain. I know he was 12 years old, but he still acted like a puppy. No one who saw him believed he was as old as he was. He was never sick, he was such a good little dog, and my heart is breaking.
We were always together, all day long, he sat on my computer desk, watching out the window, protecting me from the dogs that walked by, while I worked. He slept in my bed. He sat outside the shower waiting for me. Every minute of my day seemed to involve him - and I feel so lost and alone without him.
Buddy was a Bichon Frise, we had him since he was 4 months old - he turned 12 years old on Nov 8/09. Buddy has so much personality, everyone remarked on it that knew him!
Saying good-bye to him was the hardest thing I have ever done.
