Dear family, I am so sad to hear about your loss. Buddy sure fought a good battle. He is no longer suffering and now abides with our Jesus! Please know my prayers are with you all.
Buddy gave Quincy a table out of the pharmacy to use in his Rabbit barn for keeping his scales and needed supplies in order . When we moved it came with us and it sits on my screened-in back porch. He was a super guy and so loved.
My love and many prayers, Ann.
