Hi Friends,

I am so, so sad today.  I'm pretty sure Buster somehow managed to blow out his other knee.  I have no idea how it happened, but I'm not surprised;  the vet told us that once you repair one knee, the other one is likely to go soon after.  In Buster's case, we got an extra year-and-a-half.   I absolutely can not imagine Buster going through that surgery again.  It was so hard on him.  I can't even make myself call John, because I know what he is going to say.  The surgery was expensive (over $4,000), and at 9 1/2, Buster is not getting any younger.  Buster has been my #1 buddy for so long.  I can not imagine life without him.  But watching him struggle getting up and down and then hobbling along on 3 legs is breaking my heart.

I am so sad.


  1. i'm so sorry, friend. i hope buster's knee issue isn't what you think it is, but if it is...wishing you wisdom, strength, courage, and peace.

  2. That really is very sad..... thinking of you Vicki.
