Big Buck has passed on....

Big Buck went missing this week. Our neighbor found him in his garden. I thought she would be around a bit longer, but when I think about it she was getting quite thin despite plentiful food that she liked. Big Buck and Little Johnny were getting up there in age so I guess it's not a surprise that they went within months of each other. I was thinking that they were around 13 but my husband thinks more like 15 to 17 and when he counts it out I would have to agree. Ten years at this house, three or four at the last house and another 2 or three years with the previous owner.
My son William, Jim and I buried her in the woods out back. She is the first animal we have buried. The others have all been brought to the vets to be put to sleep and cremated.
Well hopefully Big Buck is frolicking with her sister and our Danes Amy and Fred.


  1. Thank you.
    At night, after everyone went to bed, she loved to hear her meows echo off of the ceiling. One of the things I am going to miss.
