To our most handsome boy Oscar (AKA Buggy)
We met you for the first time around Christmas 1999 in the shelter. You were a mess to say the least. We brought you home and you had to be shaved completely. I thought you looked like a white chiahaua! However,you were the most handsome boy we had ever seen.
We miss you begging for food when we eat, we miss playing chase in the house, we miss you barking at everyone on the street as if to protect us, we miss your fatherly kisses on our forhead, we miss seeing you rollover on your back when you want to be picked up, we miss seeing you run around the apartment when we shake the leash, we miss not being able to leave socks out knowing you loved to steal them from us.
We ended your suffering on a chilly day around 11am. Two weeks prior to your death, you had a seizure which was the start of the worst news we could ever have received. You had GME, inflammtion of the brain. We lost you on Monday February 18th, but we really lost you the day of the seizure as you were never yourself again.
We all miss you very much and can't wait to see you again.
Love always, Mom, Mom, Alice and Igie. 2/25/02- Well Buggy, it's been a week since we lost you..the first few days were awful, we cried many many times...we just miss you so much, there is such an emptiness in the apartment..Idgie and Alice are good, they are starting to play more..we are going to start fostering again, and I hope to adopt another little boy sometime soon..the girls need some testerone and are missing their alpha male...hope you are running around, chasing after socks, and barking at everyone..love always, mom..
To my best boyfriend, This is the first time I've been able to write to you. I still can't talk about you or think about you without wanting to cry. I hope you're somewhere wonderful where you can sleep in the sun and eat whipped cream and peanut butter. Alice misses playing rough with you. Idgie tries, but you know she's not very tough. I worry that you don't know anyone where you are and that your don't trust strangers. I hope that you are able to let go of that now and are getting lots of affection. I can't wait to see you again....I want more than anything to believe that I will. I love you my sweet boy. Mom
