We found an ad in the paper that had Huskies for sale. We went to this womans house and in her basement were all the puppies running around. I sat on the floor and they all came running over to me, jumping on me and biting my hair.
All of them were black and white, but there was one red and white one. I said to my husband, (boyfriend at the time) "get the red one." He looked over in the corner and one of the puppies was on a little carpet with a sad look on his face. He was chewing on a chew toy all by himself. My husband said, "I want that one."
Boy am I gald we didn't get the red one!
Buster was the sweetest dog. He hardly ever got into trouble and always listened. He had his little Husky quirks, but he was such a good boy. He was my husbands shadow. After we got married, Buster and I grew so much closer once we lived together, but Daddy was always his favorite.
One night when Buster was only nine years old, he collapsed in the hallway. I heard a noise, like a thump. I was on my computer and at first I didn't even get up to look. It wasn't loud or anything. Then I peeked out into the hallway just to make sure. He was in a strange position. It was as if he went to get up and then slid down the wall. His head was propped back on the door frame. I went over to him and went to put his head down because he looked uncomfortable.
Then I looked at his eyes and I knew something was really wrong. He was very stiff. I begged him not to die. I tried to give him mouth to mouth, even though I really didn't know what I was doing. Then he let out a howl and then a sigh, lost control of his bowels and kidneys, and that was it. I put my head on top of him and cried my eyes out. It was one of the saddest moments of my life. We never knew what the real cause of his death was. The vet said it could have been a heart attack or an aneurysm. All I know is that it was too soon.
We miss Buster so much. He's at the Bridge now and I know he's with all of the other Dogster angel doggies. I know there's no happier place he could be for now, until we can be toghter again one day. Until then, I've learned one thing from his sudden death. NEVER take your dog for granted.
