Default It's a sad day in the Finn's Inn Express

BUDDY
May 1994 - August 2011


It is hard to type this, but I lost one of my best companions today, Buddy had been suffering from Congestive Heat Failure for quite some time and in the last few days he had started to have seizures after only walking a short distance, I took him out so he could go to the bathroom and walked him only about 15 feet to some grass about an hour ago and he collapsed, I carried him back inside the bus and laid him on the couch where he always liked to ride. I found a vet here in West Point, Mississippi who came to the bus and confirmed that he had passed away.............................WHAT A GREAT DOG AND FRIEND I HAD

Wow, I am extremely sorry to hear about Buddy, John.

A better friend could not be found. I am thankful that I got to meet and spend time with Buddy and you at Quartzsite.

Dogs like Buddy are much more than a pet they are friends and members of our family.

Go in peace Buddy, and for John, may God bring you strength in this time of great sorrow.

John, You know I have a soft spot for all dogs but Buddy was one of my favorite. His leaving is a sad thing for many of us and I'm sure it brought tears to more than just my eyes. Lets remember the good times and the many smiles he brought to us all.
