I adopted Buster on August 3, 2012. Last Saturday, on Aug. 15, he celebrated his 12th birthday. The picture I attached was taken on his 12th birthday. My sweet, beautiful Buster passed in his sleep Aug. 20.
I’ve had four Bulldogs, going back to 1988 and adopted Brixie and Buster through Lone Star Bulldog Club Rescue. I’ve loved all of them with all my heart, but Buster was special. He hadn’t had a good life before I adopted him. But it didn’t matter. His beautiful heart loved unconditionally anyway. I recently spent two years in bed dealing with medical issues. When I wasn’t in the hospital, Buster was right beside me in bed the whole time. I wouldn’t have made it through that difficult time without his constant companionship. He saved my life.
It was a joy being Buster’s for seven years and 17 days. My heart is broken and my home is empty now. But Buster, and my previous Bulldogs, will always be with me.
I miss you so much it hurts and I love you with all my broken heart, Buster.
