Buster(Downtown Buster Brown)-Manchester Terrier, lifelong companion to Chico, died in his sleep last night....
He was 13 yrs old...and has been fighting Cushing's Disease for the last 8 mths..
may he finally Rest in Peace without pain....

Buster was a smart dog. Even learned how to 'spin' just from watching me teach Chico... The last few months though have been tough on him. I have already had one dog in the past that had Cushing's Disease so I knew the path he was taking was a short one once diagnosis is made.

Chico is lost this morning, his buddy won't wake up for breakfast and he can't figure out why.... He is moping around, not eating, not playing like usual.... I think he senses something has happened....

I was going to find Chico another Chihuahua this spring, I knew Buster was not going to live long and I hate the idea Chico now has to be alone in the house.... He has always been with Buster and had someone to play with(when Buster was well) I will begin my search now for another companion for him..so its Very Bittersweet for me right now.....

RIP Buster.........

I know what it feels like to loose a dog just before Christmas, I'm so sorry. My precious Max died on the twentieth of December last month. But don't worry Buster will have a very happy Christmas with all the other pets that have passed

Oh my, I'm so sorry to hear this Jan.

Of course Buster had the best possible life of love with you and Chico.
That is important to remember at these times.

When Carlos passed, Mateo walked up to him and it was obvious that he was bewildered by what he was seeing and smelling. It was so difficult to see that.

I feel so bad for Chico.

RIP, dear Buster.

What a beauty he was! I am so sorry for your loss. Our 13 year old shepherd had to be put to sleep a few months ago and we had to put our dachshund to sleep two years ago when she was 14. I've had the chis less than a year and sometimes when I am holding them all I can think about is how painful it will be to let them go but my life would not be the same without them. A big hug to you both.

Oh Jan, I am so sorry to hear this! I loved watching him on your video cam. RIP sweet Buster.

Message me if you need some good breeders, I can recommend one or two. I know it is bittersweet but it will help Chico get through the grieving process. Animals definitely do grieve just like we do.
