I have dreaded writing this post. I have actually tried to start it many times and I could not bring myself to finish. BUT I had to document this; Buster has been such a huge part of our lives. Ike and I both felt like a chapter of our lives had been closed. September 19, just a normal day. Ike and I were loading the boys up for school, and Buster like always followed us to the truck. It was so second nature for him to do that. Neither of us really even noticed. I heard it happen, looked up and I could immediately tell he was gone. The driver said all she saw was a squirrel…of course. He loved some squirrels. Buster was a great dog. He was our baby for many, many years. He was there for all of my tears during infertility and miscarriages. I told Ike it was weird I had never lived with him without Buster. He was the most hyper dog you would ever meet at 6 ½ years old. It broke my heart that our boys would not get to play with him. I had looked forward to the day that they would love him as much as Ike and I did. His life had certainly changed with adding 2 brothers in 2 years, but we loved him so very much. I know the Lord has plans for all things including Buster. He brought him to our lives for a period of time I could not have made it without him. I am thankful for that time. He will certainly be missed.
