Bubba

We got Bubba in 2004. He was a great dog, but then became a brother to me and my sister. He would always bark to get out attention. If you made a plate of food he had to have a plate too.

Yesterday, January 2, 2017, I got a call from my sister and my parents saying Bubba was sick. So I got in my car and drove to go see him. When I arrived he was laying there on his carpet. He looked up at me, staring into my eyes while tears were falling from his eyes. I knew this would be the last day I would see him. He wouldn't eat anything, wouldn't take his medication, and would drink water by the gallons.

we knew this day was coming but never thought it would be today. On January 3, my dad and family took him to the vet. The vet told them that Bubba's sugar was so high, which meant at his age it was cancer. When I got the call I started crying. My sister told me that the vet said Bubba was very sick and there was a 50/50 chance he would make it.

We as a family knew Bubba was ready to go home to heaven. The vet thought we were right, that Bubba was ready. As the vet came in to send Bubba to heaven, Bubba looked up at my dad and smiled. That's when he took his last breath and was gone.

Over the years, Bubba had surgery on his hip for a hip replacement and then as he got older he had so many meds he had to take. He lived a long, great amazing life. He was spoiled just like me and my sister.

RIP Bubba aka my brother
