Mr. Bufus, Beloved Son

It is much sadness that I have to post the news that Bufus crossed the Rainbow Bridge today, after being hospitalized yesterday due to complications related to diabetes and possibly cancer. He was over 20 years old, and lived a very full life. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

May the food be plentiful, the mice slow, and the sunny spots large.

We love you and miss you, and will never forget you, big guy.

-Love, Mom, Dad, Fiona and TaiChi

BRUTUS said...

So sorry to hear, especially since it seemed sort of sudden. 20 years - what a great life, although the time we spend with our fur family is never long enough. At least he made it home from your trip, and youi were able to help him when he needed you most. Godspeed, Mr Bufus!

We are so sorry to hear about Mr. Bufus. We were facing that possibility about three days ago, so we know what you had to go through. For us, we are still two dogs, but my Mommy was sore afraid for my brother. We know he was much loved.
