Bussie got his Wings

My deewest fwiend Bustew W. Smith (also known s foxtewwowist) left fow the Wainbow Bwidge last Thuwsday

fow those of you who nevew knew him,(lately, he was mostly on FB), may I intwodooce Bussie the fliwtiest, funniest, nottiest, lovingest little tewwow awound

Bussie was one of my fiwstest Blogging fwiends when I was just a little pup in NewYawk City
 I wemembew him welcoming me to the bloggie wowld
 one day in Mawch 2007 on his blog http://foxterrorist.blogspot.com he called me "Asta the little Uwbanista", and I was smitten immediately.
 I had to get in line, cause his ladyfwiends wewe legion aweady then, hehehehe He had a gweat zest fow life as his Mom said "...Bustew did evewything 10,000% and he did evewything HIS way...he had a heawt biggew than anything and he dedicated his life to loving us...."

Today, I had a little twip down memowy lane, to those golden days of my bloggie life (not the best idea fow Mommi , who is still cwying..she kept looking fow all my pictoowes and listing all my fwiends who have left fow the bwidge..needless to say, she was about to have a stwoke, so I sent hew to bed and I will do this on my own) ,

the point is Bussie was a BIG pawt of my life and I will miss him mowe than I can say.

This pictoowe was fwom the  fiwst big Pawty I went to..it was a shawed Biwfday pawty  fow Bailey of the fouw Bs and me..
we had cwazy fun  and pawties galowe in those days and Bussie was at evewy one of them in the middle of the fun

 I once was lucky enuff to be sowwounded by all the gweat boyz I knew in those days..you can see Bustew wight on top of Mango

ahhhh, those wewe the days!
I felt like the luckiest giwl in the wowld, and I still think I am to have known them all

Cleawly, thewe will be a gigantic pawty ovew the bwidge today..so many of ouw fwiends awe aweady thewe to welcome Bussie

he is leaping happily , cloud to cloud , his yoof- ful body westowed to match his spiwit which he nevew lost fow a minute, even when his little body got tiwed hewe on eawf

no goobyes hewe Bussie, just fawewell till we meet again.
Boo da Pest is just a hop skip and a jump fwom the wainbow bwidge, and I know you will be thewe to gweet me when my time to go comes
In the meantime, I will look fow you in the clouds

Thank you fow all the good times my deew fwiend
smoochie kisses

Oh Asta, such a beautiful post. I did not know Bussie, but of course, he was a fox terrier so must have been special. The old pictures are special too. What a time you all had.
Toodle pip!
PS But looking forward, I am bouncing with excitement at the prospect of our Blogville Olympics (even if Gail has only found time to enter me for a few events)....

Love to your parents and guess what my human's mum was from Gyor hence love of all things Hungarian. Post your email if you wish as a comment (I won't publish it) as I would like to hear how things are over there. Fancy that I am thrilled to meet someone in dear Budapest.
Best wishes Molly

Oh Asta this post made Ma start tearing again. It never gets any easier to lose our dear friends. Bussie was SUPER and we're gonna miss him terribly :(

Ma says it leaves her tummy sick because she knows she's gonna have to go through more pain but she tries hard not to think about those days acomin' and I guess that's why it's always so shocking to get the sad news.

Thanks for the lovely tribute to Buster. He was one of my first FB friends...I don't blog much these days 'cuz of FB so thanks for sharing this! xoxo
Love Autumn

Gus said...

Thank you sweetie...this is a lovely tribute to Buster who has touched so many hearts. Muzzer has been off and on weepy, I have tried to help her by cuddling lots. Sending kisses for you and Mommi.


Jake of Florida said...

Us too, Bussie was one of the first to welcome us, and we were on chat together. We remember those parties (and mom started to tear up when she spied us in the corner of those two amazing photos). That was a beautiful tribute, Asta, sweetie, and said just what we're all feeling. Tell your mommi not to cry -- this awful pain is the gut-wrenching price we have to pay for all the love and fun and laughter.

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry and our mom

Asta, dear Buster was one of our first blogging pals too.

We used to chat in the DWB chat room on Sunday afternoons. Those were the days, we remember them well.

We are having difficulty coming to terms that the one and only Buster has gone. it just doesn't seem right!

Thank you for your lovely tribute to Buster.

Molly, Taffy, Monty and Winnie
