Asta. Our hearts are breaking. It was Butchy that taught jake to play poker and Butchy that made Fergi feel like a princess when they were together. All of us have been huddling together, the pups catching my tears, and gathering all the special memories so that they'll always stay close to our hearts. We'll be sending kisses on the wind and watching for a new star in the heavens. And, oh my, will we be missing him.

One of our family will be leaving us, but only for a while.

Much love
AuntieSally (and your bruvverJake and sissieFergi ... they are at my feet, where they've been all day long when they haven't been in my arms)

We just stopped over at Butchy's blog and our mom's eyes won't stop leaking. We will miss him so much. Just hope that life is filled with only 'hellos' and no 'goodbyes'... there's been too many 'goodbyes' already.

Amber-Mae said...

I'll be sure to look up at the sky tonight. I know I will see dear Butchy up there! Safe journey my friend.

WFT Nobby said...

Asta, that is such a beautiful goodbye to brave cousin Butchy. We are feeling so sad today, but your lovely tribute made us smile just for a moment, through the tears. We will be sending our kisses too, all the way from Scotland.
Thank you!
Bertie and Gail.

I have been thinkin of YOU and Butchy's family. Oh the wonderful memories he left behind.

He asked that we encourage the blog be continued. I hope that it does.

I will be watching fur his twinkle in the sky tonight.

Barbara said...

Asta, what a lovely tribute and farewell to Butchy. I know you will miss him a lot. We are going to send our kisses at his departure too.

I am just happy that the Monster can never get him again and that he will see his sissy Snickers.

I'm all leaky.

Diana Chiew said...

We said our goodbyes to Butchy. Now he can run free over at the Rainbow Bridge and be with his sister, Snickers.

George The Lad said...

Run free dear Butchy, our thoughts are with his family, so sad but he is now pain free, and we will all get to meet him one day.
I will raise a glass in his honor tonight.
Love and kisses to you Asta I know you are hurting

The Black and Tans. said...

We are staying up late tonight so we can light a candle for Butchy to help him on his way.

We really cannot believe he is leaving us but understand he wants to be with Snickers again.

We are going to make sure we visit Katie regularly so she knows we are still here for her and her Mama.

Oh Asta we are so sad about Butchy having to leave for the bridge. We know this has to be so hard for his mom and his whole family. We have gone by and sent them all lots of purrs and prayers. We know his mom had to make a very difficult decision but she made the best one for Butchy instead of just thinking of herself. Mom is leaky about it, and we know that at 5 today she will be thinking of him and we will all send him extra purrs and prayers for his trip.

Oh Asta....what a lovely picture and tribute to our sweet Butchy...he has earned his wings...and I'm sure his renunion with Miss Snickers was joyous.

Mumsie has been holding the foxie stuffie all day who travels with her...and we will be looking for another star in the sky tonight...

We are reaching our paws out to you, Katie and the kitties and to our friends all over the world in our grief.

But the comfort is Butchy made his journey surrounded by Love.

And we embrace Mama and Papa Lamb at this awful time...

Sad kisses,

Lacie Girlie, Scruffman and Babystan and Mumsie

Eric said...

Oh Asta. Smashing farewell to our dearest cousin Butchy. We know he'll still be with us all in our hearts but boy oh boy, it hurts doesn't it? But I guess if he can't be with Mama and Katie the bestest place he could ever be is reunited with his sweet sissy Angel Snickers.

I'll go and look for his bright star soon and I'm going to bark to him to frolic full of foxy joy, without that horrid seizure monster catching him and yap he's never to worry 'cos we'll all be looking out for Moma Lamb, cousin Katie and the Kitties. That ok sweetpea?

Wiry licks and loads of love Eric xxxxxx

Through it all--the memories, the tears, the grief and the farewells it is love that binds us all together and keeps us forever joined by our heartstrings. And our connection transcends space, time, life, death. Remember that during the tough moments and find peace.

Asta, we hope you get the chance to sit with your face turned toward the sun, smelling the sweet scent of flowers and enjoying the bustling hum of a streetside mocha...take a giant gulp of life and smile because Butchy would have loved it, too! Have a wonderful extended holiday weekend! Hoping for good weather and relaxing times for everyone there.

Angel Gracie=^o.o^= said...

I was so sorry to hear that Butchy had to go to the bridge. I visited with his family and left kind words and purrs during this hard time. This is the one thing that I HATE in the blogging world, the sad that has to come when a friend leaves us. Remember it isn't good bye, it is until we meet again!

The Daily Pip said...

Hi Asta,

I just noticed you are collecting donations to help Butchy's mom. I will try to help a little.

If you have time today, stop by my bloggie. I give you a little shout out.

Your pal, Pip
