  • Rest in Peace Buddy | Green Gate Farms
    Though visitors were appalled we came to find comfort in the ritual Face Hump which was as predictable as roosters crowing and people staring What folks and Boonie failed to understand is that Buddy was really a big baby who could by turns be embarrassed and silly Like when we had him shaved to the skin to alleviate his hot spots The groomer had transformed his lionlike mane into an effette poodle leaving only fluffy ears and a pouf at the end of his tail He was mortified He raced into the house and hid for several days Or the time Skip bagged a deer and was looking forward to presenting this hard won roast to the family The meat was perfect glistening and cooling on the kitchen island Skip stepped out forgetting that Bud s mouth was table level When the meat went missing we looked everywhere In the garden in the driveway where he took his dirt bathes But no he had shoved it under Ethan s bed certain it would never be found He loved Ethan s bed That s where he hid his treasures purloined dinners rotting carcasses excavated from the compost pile gnawed crayons Thunderstorms and firecrackers sent him racing into Ethan s bedroom as he tried to shove himself under the twin bed When that didn t work he thought nothing of catapulting his dripping filthy self onto the mattress and under the sheets I loved our Bud dirt and all How I wish he were here to trek in more Instead he took an evening amble this week that ended badly We guess he must ve gone down to the river to cool off and a snake got him in the check He died in our arms gasping as venom swelled his head and shut his throat He deserved a better end but given his proclivity for mishap and unprovoked aggression perhaps not surprising Our sweet Bud is gone and he has left a giant size hole in our hearts About Green Gate Farms View all posts by Green Gate Farms FlowerVeggie Bouquets for the Hula Hoop Bride No Mo Flowers 16 Responses to Rest in Peace Buddy Anitra Richardson November 3 2015 at 5 00 pm I am so sorry for your loss of your dog Buddy Thanks for sharing this beautiful and moving memorial What an amazing life he seems to have had and how blessed you were to have him Peace be with your sweet Buddy and your family Reply Azucena Garza November 3 2015 at 5 03 pm Oh my My eyes are welling I am so so sorry I will miss him when I go to the farm Hugs to you all Reply Yeni Woodall November 3 2015 at 5 05 pm oh what a wonderful lived life Reply Blake Shanley November 3 2015 at 5 36 pm Oh Erin I m so sorry Such a sweet story and a beautiful eulogy for your treasured friend Sending you
