FOLLOWS IS A COPY OF AN E-MAIL WE SENT TO OUR OLD FRIEND BILL WHEN BUSTER DIED. BILL HAD GIVEN US A GREAT OLD VW CAMPER VAN IN THE FALL OF 2001. AMONG BUSTER'S FAVORITE THINGS WAS CAMPING, GOING TO THE BEACH, ETC IN ONE OF THE NUMEROUS CAMPERS WE HAVE HAD OVER THE YEARS. AS IT WAS WINTER WHEN THE VAN (NICKNAMED 'SCRUFFY' BY BILL) ARRIVED, WE NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO TAKE A TRIP WITH BUSTER. UNTIL....
Thought you would like to know:
The individual who loved your VW more than any other here was our loyal Dog
Buster, Flute-Dog, a dog who has heard more Ocarina tootles than any other
dog, as he lived for fourteen years in our studio.
Buster liked nothing better than hopping in one of the various camper vans
that has been here over the years and go somewhere, anywhere, Let's Go,
Let's Go!! To the beach, to the Cabin, anywhere. When it showed up here,
he was ecstatic!! Needed a little help getting in, but it was love at
Alas, he never actually rode anywhere in Scruffy until today, though he sat
in it with me a few times.
Buster went over the 'Rainbow Bridge' this morning, gracefully, peacefully.
Laid down in the studio for the last time last night at about 6PM and went
sometime after 6AM this morning.
He finally got that ride in Scruffy when I took him to the Doggy Mortuary a
few minutes ago.
Thank you for sending Scruffy Buster's way. It was one of his last great
pleasures, just to run outside and pee on the wheel, then wag his tail and
bark at the sliding door, Let's Go, Let's Go...
Your loyal pal,
