#CBL = Celebrating Buddy's Life #TheAviators
April 20, 2002 to June 29, 2013
As it so happens we have come upon Buddy's last few days to fly before his last great flight Over The Rainbow Bridge. Buddy is in end stage of life. His circulatory system has slowed. He has all the indicators of impending organ failure coming upon him very soon. He has had several difficult and extreme episodes in the past six weeks. They took a lot out of him. He does have an extraordinary need for rest and napping throughout each day now and during the night.
As much as our entire family would like to be the pet humans holding Buddy to our chests and willing him to be healed and whole, that is not the way it works. Instead, we hold Buddy to our chests daily and tell him how much we love him and how much he means to us.
Veterinary consultation, family conferencing, soul searching, prayers and a lot of tears have brought us to an end of life care decision. Buddy is my Grand's (grandson's) dog and final agreement had to come between us all as a family as we answered this primary question:
"What is in the best interest of Buddy?"
ADVENTURE MISSION(S) ~ Instead of asking for or a calling a Porch Mission for Buddy, we are asking The Aviators Club and our #TheAviators pals for ADVENTURE MISSION(S). We invite any other anipal groups to 'ride in' with us at any time. We know recently the Bad Boys Of Twitter #BBOT and Pink Angels #PA have so lovingly been including #TheAviators in their rides.
1. The @3DogsWhite with a very live Buddy will be flying around to various places the next few days. This is their final opportunity to fly together in physical presence with each other. No set flight dates or times. Brand new #TheAviators who have not yet had opportunity for flight school, don't worry about that, we will keep you aloft. Pick out your flying machine and for others who already have theirs: Hop into your flying machine or on your bike! Feel free and welcome to join them if you are around Twitter and/or....
2. Share your own "Adventure" places, pictures, flights or rides. As your own time and Twitter schedule permits you to...
3. In all cases: please use the hashtag #CBL for Celebrating Buddy's Life (we are also Celebrating Buddy's Love). All aviators please include your #TheAviators hashtag please. Other groups that would participate may use their own hashtag if they desire as long as they get the #CBL in so we may find the tweets please.
An open invitation for any and all animal lovers:
Any animal, wildlife, pet group or organization that pertains to the welfare, compassion, concern, care, adoption and good treatment of animals (any and all animals) are welcome to tweet out Internet links. Again, please include the hashtag #CBL so we may Celebrate Buddy's Life and Celebrate Buddy's Love. It would be our honor to retweet those links.
Sending love out and asking for your assistance with as strong and brave hearts as we can possibly muster here, I'm @grammakaye on behalf of myself and these precious @3DogsWhite.
SALUTE TO OUR BUDDY!
We love you so much!
