One last picture of Tuffy. This was one of my favorite pictures I have of him.
The vets office was great this morning, I couldn't watch when he passed on, I don't mean they wouldn't let me be with him at the end, I mean I just could not handle that, but the vet and vet tech dropped everything they were doing and made others wait so they could take care of me and Tuffy. Tuffy knew all the people there so he did not die alone without people who loved him there with him. They also made me a paw print of Tuffys foot in some clay with his name and the date that I have to bake in the oven now so I will have that from his last moments. The vet hugged me when I was crying and she told me I did all I could and way more than most people would have done for him, which helped it hurt a little less. I felt like all of you where there with Tuffy this morning also.
His buddy Panther must know Tuffy is gone, He could see it in my eyes when I came home from the vet, Panther looked at me crying and got a real sad look on his face and hung his little head and went and layed under the table for a long time, I petted Panther and told him his friend Tuffy was gone.
I opened his little box and cried and said goodby and petted him one last time before I buried him this morning. He is right next to my Peanut who I lost about 8 years ago and two of Rusty's little baby brothers who died a couple years ago.
This is probably the last I will post about Tuffy, and I want to thank everyone who was praying for Tuffy to somehow make it through all this.
By By Tuffy, I miss you already.
