Goodnight, sweet prince

Buddy, Prince of West Methuen, had to be put down at 12:45 this afternoon. Long may this wonderful greyhound/shepherd mix run! Here’s hoping they have deer, rabbits and wild turkeys to chase in heaven.


“The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man’s.”
РMark Twain, letter to W. D. Howells, April 2, 1899

  1. He was about 14 or 15 — as he was a shelter dog, we can’t really be sure — and had as happy a life as it was long. Still, there’ll never be another like him.

  2. Hoisted a glass (bottle), m’self. Whatever sad circumstances put that pooch in the shelter also put him on the path to a great life filled with love. Funny how, with a dog’s eternal optimism, things work out that way sometimes.
