Rest In Peace Buttercup. I asked you all to pray for her, and she survived the night of Tuesday.. but yesterday Thursday June, 16th, 2011 between 9-10AM.. my angel passed away. We got word the morning of thursday that she was doing better, her blood count went up 10 points! Thats great.. but then My mother got home and told me that she passed away. I cannot tell you how much I cried. Today my eyes, teeth, jaw, and face hurt.. but most important my heart hurts. My heart is broken. I thought she would pull through, she was so strong.. The last time I got to see her was Tuesday night. That is the last time I saw her alive. My house feels so empty now.. I don't even know what to do. I have lost the passion I had for life. This Dog, was my family, my life, my sister, my baby, and my best friend. I know she is in a better place and she isn't hurting anymore. I know she came to say goodbye to us last night because there were paw prints on my mom's bed, and she hadn't been home since Tuesday.. and my mom makes a tight bed. We cried for hours. She has been there for me since I was four years old. She would have been Eleven this July. Words cannot even describe how I feel. I have lost my baby, but I gained a guardian angel. I know she is with my grandpa in heaven.. and she is watching over us. I love her so much, and It kills me knowing that I wasn't there with her when she passed away. I went to say goodbye to her body... and she looked like she was asleep. She loved to sleep. This Monday.. we are having a candle light memorial service. Where ever you are in the world. Just take a minute, and light a candle in memory of my wonderful, smart, adorable, chubby, loving dog. Buttercup Fickes. A Yellow Lab. Born in Ohio, with the biggest heart imaginable. I made a page on FaceBook if you want to "like" it, it's called "In Loving Memory Of Buttercup". I hope you guys can understand that I will be taking a slight break from posting on this blog. I really hope you can understand.
RIP BUTTERCUP FICKES

Forever in our hearts, and always in our memory.
