Buster, Goodbye Old Friend
On Friday, August 8 at 8:30 pm I lost my best friend Buster. He brought me 16 years of pure joy, loyal companionship, and unconditional love. Buster was by my side 24-7. At work and around the house he was right at my heals. Even when I would take a shower he would sit outside of the shower doors licking his paws, waiting for me to finish.
He lived an extraordinary life – hanging out on my college campus, digging for crabs at the beach, racing in Jack Russell Terrier races, tagging along to the office, living with me in 4 towns across the east coast.
I loved every ounce of him even down to his stinky breath. It smelled sweet to me … because it was his breath. And I will miss it forever. Rest in peace buddy, nothing will fill the void that you left.
