Buddy from Muttville
Buddy was called Pal at Muttville in San Francisco when he found his right person in Nancy. He was 14, had been returned twice by other adopters, then he found Home with her. She loved him through Cushing’s Disease, then a lung tumor and all the medical appointments, but she got a kick out of getting him his favorite burrito after each chemo treatment.
Then he got a second lung tumor and the time had come for the home euthanasia vet. But Buddy had his own way of saying thanks. He never slept in their bed, but the night before that Final Appointment he got into bed snuggled between Nancy and her husband Gene and took his last breath. A beautiful last year of life, and a beautiful way to go.
