Your presence we miss,

Your memories we treasure,

Loving you always,

Forgetting you never.

Buddy, Our BEST Friend, November 2, 1994 - February 14, 2006

On Valentine's Day, February 14, 2006, Mommy & Daddy
sent me Home to meet God.

I wasn't feeling very well and hurt a whole lot. My Mommy
and Daddy are VERY, VERY sad and crying a lot. They miss me.
I miss them, too, VERY, VERY MUCH!

But, they knew I was hurting all the time and they did what
they knew was right because I'm with God, Grandpa and Judd
now and feeling GREAT! I hurt no more.

I'll be waiting for Mommy and Daddy when they get up here.
I love them both dearly. They were the best Mommy and
Daddy I could have asked for!

I love you, Mommy and Daddy. Don't be sad. Remember me
always. I'll meet you at the Gates!

We love you, Buddy and miss you terribly.
Feel better, BEST friend!

Rainbow Bridge


Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.


When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here,

that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all

of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty

of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.


All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor;

those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as

we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals

are happy and content, except for one small thing: They each miss someone

very special to them, who had to be left behind.


They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops

and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers.

Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his

legs carrying him faster and faster.


You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet,

you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy

kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and

you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from

your life but never absent from your heart.


Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Hi!  I'm Buddy Bossack

It's my job to take care of Mommy and Daddy.

I let them know when a small plane flies over our house by barking.

Now, when a helicopter flies over, I really let them know.  I bark and run out the door to the porch hoping they will follow.

I watch for cars driving down our roads.  We really don't see too many cars out here in the desert.  I remember living in Rhode Island; there were a lot of cars driving up and down our street.

Mommy and Daddy adopted me when they lived in Rhode Island.  My life wasn't too good then.  I was abandoned and hungry and not feeling too well. 

Then came Mommy and Daddy.

Boy, was I ever a lucky dog!

I love my Mommy and Daddy and enjoy protecting them.  I WILL protect them 'til my last breath.

I love my Mommy and Daddy!

This is me in my stealth mode guarding our house.


Daddy took a close-up of me on guard duty.

I take my job VERY seriously.


Hey, everyone needs a break now and then!


Ya just need to keep your face clean.


A little snack every now and then is a GOOD thing.


Mommy says to chew them well.


Daddy and me talking.  I listen closely, very closely.


I've got my own door.  Makes it easier for me to do my job.


This is me in hypersonic mode...

(psst...don't let on you know, but Daddy messed up the picture)


Keep moving, cows, you're not coming in here...and get away from my mailbox!


THIS is an important job. 

I'm bringing Daddy a new American flag to fly in our front yard.
