The Adventures of Fuzzy and Boomer—Fuzzy

I’ve been thinking, Boomer.

Fallen-4

What, Fuzzy?

I’ve been thinking about life, Boomer.  Life and all the good things that make up life.

I like to think about life also, Fuzzy.  What are you thinking?

Just this—If I could give you the gift of my years I would tell you to:

Fallen-2

  • Never turn down a ride in the back of the pick-up
    • Oh! You are so right, Fuzzy. There is nothing like the wind in your ears and the ruffle of the air on your fur…like the ride in the back of the pick-up
  • Don’t forget riding with Mom on the four-wheeler. It’s the best.  She goes slow enough we can always smell the smells and see the sights and….
    • And Never worry about falling off, Fuzzy!
    • Right, Boom, we are always safe with Mom.

Hummmm

  • Cats are okay….even if I like to keep Sam-Sam from eating out of my dog dish—I still pretty much like him.
    • Me too, Fuzzy, me too!
  • The really fun things to do are barking the mailman and the FedEX man and the UPS man down the lane. Helps Mom and Dad know we are guarding the place and lets them know we are the boss.
    • And all the trucks coming in for hay.
    • Oh, Yes I forgot about the hay people. You are right!
  • Don’t forget helping Mom with the leaves…leaves are fun…it is fun to run and bark in the leaves while Mom works.
    • It is Fuzzy, it is!

There is just so much I would like to tell you, Boom, but I think you know.

I think you know.

Fallen-2

Please let Mom know also, Boom.  It’s been wonderful here on the farm with Mom and Dad and you, my Buddy.My-Fuzzy-Dude-Brown

Oh, Fuzzy…How do Mom and I go on?  How?

Fallen-3

One day at time…that is all you can do.

Good bye- my Friend, Good Bye.

Fuzzy passed away today, Thursday, October 30, 2014 at 11:00 am. He died in my arms with Boomer lying next to the dog bed.  We are devastated.  All of us…  Terry, Myself, Boomer and the cats.

Thank-you for loving Fuzzy as much as we have.  I will be back Sunday or Monday or Tuesday…I need some time right now.

Friday Adventures will continue with Boomer and myself, for life goes on, albeit much more lonely.Fuzzy 006

  1. How blessed you and Fuzzy both were to spend his life together. I weep with you and for you, Boomer and your family. I love reading your blog have learnt so much about life on the other side of the world from where I live near Cape Town. Gail

  2. Oh Fuzzy! Mom and I knew the day was coming, but we are so, so very sorry to see you go. You are a great credit to dogs all over the world and we will miss you terribly! But we know that you are sharing your wisdom with others that have gone before you.
    Fuzzy, you made the world a better place.
    Hugs and dog kisses to Boomer and Mom and Dad.

  3. Linda, my heart bleeds for you. The one bad thing about owning a dog is that their life span is not the same as ours. I have lost four or five dogs over the years – they are buried in the gardens where I lived at the time – three here in the paddock – my dear pug, Algy, my darling pointer Oscar and the farmer’s sheepdog Tip. I miss them every day. He died safely in your arms – he would feel loved to the very end. Sleep well dear Fuzzy.

  4. Tears, just tears. Damn! I don’t cuss much, but losing a great dog is cuss worthy.
    I’m so very sad for you and the farm family. I wonder what Boomer will do now that his running buddy is running in heaven? Prayers for a gentle weekend for all of you. ((sigh))

    Big hugs to you, Terry, Boomer and the rest of the gang.

  11. It’s a tough thing to have happen, for sure. Too many have passed my way over the past 62 years, but every time, I’m a far better person for their contribution to my life. They never fail to remind me what devotion and love truly mean.

  12. I am so sorry for your family, I know it is hard to say goodby to a loved one. Hold Boomer tight I know he cannot understand all this. I hope he said his goodbyes to Fuzzie. So many people loved the Friday extras with the boys.

  13. Linda, what a beautiful tribute to your Fuzzy. I have tears falling down my cheeks. When I saw the opening story of Fuzzy and Boomer I thought…Oh oh…It’s only Thursday….what’s up? It had to be so hard for you to write that. I am so sad that your Fuzzy has left you and us. What a sweet, beautiful dog. I guess you have to feel blessed that you had him for a pet. My deepest condolences to you all. I have lost beloved pets and I remember the ache.

  14. I am so sorry about Fuzzy but he will always be there yet in another form for our pets affect our lives in ways untold. His spirit will live on through you, Terry, the cats and Boomer. Always he will be in my heart ! He will be missed a lot…..

  15. I wish I knew something wise and wonderful and healing to say, but I don’t. Blessings on all of you for taking an unwanted pet and giving him a wonderful life. I bet he gave you more than you gave him. Look what the people who dumped him missed.

    Love to all of you.

  16. I had a sinking feeling with the way the story started. Losing a dog is heart breaking. I still tear up when somebody mentions our Aussie who died last spring. Dogs are the only family member we get to pick or who picks us and there’s nothing like the unconditional love they give.

  17. Oh no!!! Bless your heart!! Man I hate this!! Been reading your blog for a few years, don’t always comment, but I’ve fallen in love with Fuzzy and Boomer! Can’t help but cry with you. I’ve got two senior dogs and I know their best years are behind us and I treasure every day I have with them. I am so sorry for your loss. Words will never be enough to soothe the empty spot in your heart. God bless you!

  20. What a beautiful picture on the header. I started weeping half way through – I knew. My heart aches in sympathy with you – you will look down expecting to see him and he won’t be there, and then you will hear his bark when you are least expecting it – he will be watching over you and Teri and Boomer. Big hugs to you all, grieve all you want, we will still be here. Laura

  22. So sorry to hear about Fuzzy. I know how hard it is to have a senior dog cross the Rainbow Bridge. I was also holding my Sunny when he crossed. I’ve got another 14 year old who’s still toddling around. My condolences.

  23. Dear Linda, this is such sad news. The lost of an animal companion who is a member of your family cuts to the very core. All I have to offer are the words that Dulcy gave me in 1989 after she died, “At the end, all that matters is love. My love for my human and hers for me. I have planted the memories of our life together in her heart. She will find them there when I am gone and they will comfort her.” I know that you and Terry and Boomer will take comfort in the many, many memories you have of Fuzzy and his fourteen years with you. Peace.

  25. Gosh, how hard it must be for you all (Boomer included) to have lost such a faithful amazing friend. Your memories must be flooding in and long may they do so…. Dogs bring so much in ways we don’t realise til they leave us…. all we can hope for is to be good owners and friends while they share our lives and I am sure Fuzzy would say that he could not have had a better time!

  26. Dear Linda, I only just recently found your blog, and what drew me to it immediately was your wonderful feature on Fridays. Even though I’ve only read just a few of them, I am so very, very sorry for your loss. I had an uneasy feeling when I was reading this post that something was not right; I burst into tears when I read Fuzzy had passed. You have paid tribute to both Fuzzy and Boomer with your wonderful stories in such a warm, loving way. I can’t say it as well as so many before me have, but please accept my heartfelt condolences.
    Warm Regards, Lisa in Oregon

  29. Linda, I too was out of town and just read your sad news. We also lost our little dog last week from drowning in our lake, so I truly feel your pain. So sad to lose them as they are so much a part of our lives. Take care my friend, and give Boomer an extra pat on the head. Hugs! Teri

  30. Hi Linda, I have been gone and just returned to your sad news. I am so sorry to hear that Fuzzy went to the Rainbow Bridge…someday I will get to meet him too!! He was one lucky dog to live with you as long as he did. It has been a crappy year for dogs on blogs, Oscar, Iris and Baron…and now Fuzzy. Sending you a hug:)

  32. Dear Linda and Terry, I have been on an extended blog break and didn’t keep track of anyone. On catching up, one of the first things was to go and see what Fuzzy and Boomer had been up to.
    I was so terribly sorry to read about Fuzzy. You wrote such a loving and fitting post in his honour. Thank you for sharing his life with us.
    He knew he was loved and cared for and my heart goes out to all of you. xx
