Your Pet Loss Stories'Buddy My Beautiful Blue Eyed Boy'

My baby Buddy will be gone one year this Friday, I hate to even think of waking up on Friday Morning June 11. My beautiful boy would have been 21 this year in April, but he is no longer with me. I thought that maybe after a year the tears would quit coming but they don't. You see Buddy (aka Boo Boo) was a large dog he was a husky mix coal black, with 4 small white socks and his beautiful blue eyes he got from his mama.
Buddy had 20 years and 2 months of unconditional love and he gave so much more than he ever asked for. He was my life long companion, two kids growing up, two marriages, a divorce everything that constant love was there and even when he would occassionally wander off (he would scare us to death he would get out of his dog run and one time he was for two weeks) he always found his way home with a wag of his tail like hey I didn't get lost you did.
Those eyes and that love is what I remember the most, so as his year anniversary comes up I pray to God and the angels above that he is running and playing with Gonzo and his mama knowing that his earth bound momma loves him more than life and can't wait to see him when my time comes, standing at that bridge with gonzo and grandpa Thompson, waiting with those beautiful blue eyes shining, tail wagging, saying I love you in his distinct voice, and slobbery kisses.
To my beautiful blue eyed boy, I love you and miss you every day, god bless you and keep you til I come home to take care of you myself.
I love you Buddy, and I miss you every single day.
Love your earthbound Momma.
