    That is Bubba on the right and his little sister Kay-Dee.
    His given name was Dakota's Tiny Dancer (Elton John) but we usually called him Bubba Brown.
    He was such a sweet, funny little boy. But yesterday he was ready to cross that wonderful bridge that gave him his sight, hearing and fun back. And we sent him on his way with much LOVE.
    Rest in Peace Bubba, Mama loves.... Feb. 15, 1996 to Nov. 3, 2010

    I know it is so awful. We have lost so many in such a short time. Sandi my fawn Chi, we battled cushings disease with her for 2 years. She was never in any pain, we lost her 1 week before her 13th birthday. Then Shasta who we had since she was 2 days old, boxer/cocker mix. Just the sweetest thing, she went blind but got around just fine for about 6 months and we lost her when she was 11. Ruby our Bassett, I still miss that sound. When Shasta left us I knew in my heart Ruby would go too. She was gone 3 months later from kidney failure. She was also 11 or 12 (rescue) and now Bubba, he went blind, deaf and got dementia in the same week. I had him at the vet for his hearing. Nothing else seemed to be wrong. The vet just said he was an old guy. He made it for about 3 months. But was never in any pain "I" was the one in pain, my little guy was gone, dementia is an awful disorder. But we still have Kay-Dee and she is full of herself, we bought her a little stuffed dog yesterday and she kicked it out into the floor. [​IMG] And Mercury our 1 1/2 yr old Pitt.
    It is sad because I knew when they started to go they would all go at about the same time.
    But they certainly bring joy and love to your family when they are here with us and that makes the pain all worth it.
    Thanks for all the well wishes [​IMG] It means so much to me.

    Sweet Bubba, look for Spook and Bashful. They will help show you around. Just don't make Bashful kitty mad, she is known to set BIG dogs straight!

    Sorry for your loss. We will all have such fun once we make it too the bridge!

    You did the right thing.

    The only things we owe our pets is a good, healthy, rich life and a dignified peaceful exit from it. Sounds like what you did.

    Hugs to you.

    How sweet,, My Maxi is just a little bit older and I'm starting to worry. He has a cataract in one eye but still has vision, his hearing is pretty good,, he's doing well it just worries me with his age. He looks similar to yours too! I'm so glad he crossed the bridge, but he'll be happy to see you and his sister again too.
