Goodbye to Brave Little Butchy

Friends, my Relentlessly Huge heart is breaking today as I bid farewell to my good friend and fellow seizure doggie, Butchy. He put up a good terrier fight, but the seizure and cancer monsters wore him out and he told his momma that he wanted to make the final trip over the Rainbow Bridge to join his sister, Miss Snickers, and all our other doggie pals who have crossed over. He is creating cracker dog mayhem, no doubt, and having a grand old time.

Run free, Butchy.

Mango Man!

P.S. So many tragedies around the world that can leave humans and their fur kids separated and looking for each other. If you want to donate to the humane society in Joplin Missouri where the bad tornado hit, you can do so by clicking here.

Mango, we didn't know Butchy but left words for his family. We also made a donation to help them poor fur-friends in Missouri. They are also collecting fleece blankets for the doggies as well. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Moms eyes water every time she reads of another furbaby passing and for some reason there seems to be a lot this year. The good thing is knowing that there is not pain or suffering over the rainbow bridge and there are so many great pals waiting to show the little guy around.

We sent kisses so Butchy could kiss our family members who are waiting at the bridge when he arrived.

I didn't know Butchy but I will keep his family in my thoughts.

Run free Butchy

Butchy will be missed. Butt he is so lucky that his peeps allowed him to go GENTLY to the Bridge.

Soft woos from all of us for Butchy and his family. They gave him a great gift of freedom from a life that was no longer a happy one so that now he can be happy forever.

We have done a bit to help out both the humans and the animals of Joplin. A very tragic situation there indeed.

Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

It seems that so many fur-kids are crossing that bridge lately. I know that Butchy's star will be shining brightly.

Such a kind tribute to Butchy. Our sympathies to his family and we know he is romping pain-free over the Rainbow Bridge.

So sad, poor Butchy and family. I've lit a candle for him tonight.

You are right Mango, so much sadness and disaster this year. :( I hope we see a turn for the good soon!!

So many disasters recently.. i sure hope that most people and their furries will get reunited in Joplin.

It's a sad day in Blogland. Butchy's parents gave him a great gift, probably one of the hardest gifts they ever had to give.

We will miss him and our hearts are broken.

Butchy was surely surrounded by furry special pawrents -

When I went out prior to bed, I thought I heard the pawty going on akhross The RB -

The Terrors so know how to do it!


Amber-Mae said...

Love that handsome picture of Butchy. He is at peace now. He is feeling no more pain. We'll miss him.

Berts Blog said...

Ah Mango, it is tough to lose friends to the RB

But they don't call it Rainbow Bridge cause it is a dark place to go.

All heads upward

We just came from leaving our condolences to his family. It's a sad day!


WFT Nobby said...

I too, here in Scotland, have been feeling so sad about my distant cousin Butchy. But I think he was lucky that his humans were brave enough to do what was best for him.
This world can be so sad, at times. We have been thinking too about those poor folk in Joplin, Mo, which Gail says she travelled through a couple of times when she lived in NE Oklahoma.
Toodle pip!

Unknown said...

So sorry to hear about the loss of your dear friend, Butchy!

We'll visit his family right away.

Corbin said...

Very sorry to hear about the loss of Butchy... I didn't know him, but did hear of his struggles and he has been in my thoughts the past few weeks...

Chester said...

R.I.P Butchy. I'm glad you are no longer in pain and bein' chased by the seizure monster. This world is full of pain and tragedy and I look forward to the day when all things will be made new again.

*pats Mango on shoulder* There's a time for laughter and a time for tears and as friends, we are all here to see each other thru the good and the bad.

Mango, we are sad to hear about Butchy, too. He fought the good fight and was so brave. We send comforting purrs and headbutts to his family.

Marjie said...

Aw, poor Butchie and his family. We have helped the poor doggies in Joplin, too. You are kind to remind everyone. That goes with the Relentlessly Huge heart you have.

Hey Mango,
