Jan 1993 - March 2005
March 10th my best and dearest friend, my loving brindle boy Buck passed
to the Rainbow Bridge to await me. He was 12 yrs and 3 months old. He and
his sister Trixie (Jan 1993 - June 2004) were my first adopted rescues and
they forever changed my life.
was thru Buck and Trixie that I learned this very important thing -
separate and break the bond between littermates living in the same home!
No one advised me of the importance of this, and as a result these two
were "hell on wheels" for the first 3 years! We finally ended up in
Obedience Class, where our world opened up. Thought Buck originally failed
his first class and we were told some private lessons would be advised, he
eventually became my model boy! It seems grace and dignity blossom with
1999 I became involved again with Rescue, coming a foster home. Buck was
delighted to have new friends! Over the years, Buck helped many a foster
Dane come to trust and know love again. He was my ambassador, he always
greeted each new foster with a wag and a willingness to show them around
He taught many the joys of killing the squeaky thing in the stuffed toys,
the joy of a zoomie, to thrill to "just chill" and most important he
taught most how to be a successful mooch and couch potato.
was my eyes and ears at night, waking me if there was ever a problem with
a foster, or if one just couldn't "hold it" any longer. He would lay by
those being nursed, holding a paw so to speak and letting them know they
were not alone, he was there and he'd make sure the nurse <me> knew what
was needed. He maintained order and discipline in the ranks, always firm
but gentle. Let a foster think they could "get one over on Mom" and he'd
show them just how silly that thought was. He taught many that shopping
the counters was not acceptable, that the remote control wasn't a new chew
toy and that Mom's beloved books were completely off limits!
I know Buck, he's at the Bridge right now making sure that no one gets
left out of anything, inviting all the newbies to come over and play,
extolling the virtues of laying in the sun or tricking some one off the
couch! He knows where snacks are at and how to get some one to get him
one! He already has the angels wrapped around his paw!
You are missed dear one but your legacy forever lives on. We will be
together again one day.
