Thoughts and prayers for comfort for my friend and Buddy's 'sister', Katie needed, Esther. Buddy has crossed the Rainbow Bridge today, thank you, Esther: "Good old Buddy had a long fight but passed away in his sleep this afternoon. He seemed to come back from the original infection but I don't think he ever really got over it. He slowed down a lot over the past six months, or more, and within the past few days he wouldn't eat much - almost seemed like he knew or was just too tired. We were to go back to the Vet today to see what more could be done, so we let him have a snooze before going......but when we went to get him ready he was gone. Guess he said, "No more Vets for me". I had a good time with him this past weekend for remembrance anyway.....Thanks for all the prayers, thoughts and advice......"
