    Default Dudley - My Beautiful Boy

    -dudley-regal-jpg-dudley-tot-jpg

    My dear friends here at EBN, On Saturday, February 19, 2011, my life changed when I brought home the sweetest, chubbiest little meatball - Dudley, the English Bulldog. I had waited 25 years for my little EBD. he became my little boy, my sweet baboo, my love. He made his Daddy (Scott Kantruss) and I laugh all of the time - burying things with invisibile dirt, sucking on his baby, playing with his beloved toys (oh how he loved his toys), his little wiggle-butt when he walked, and those giant feel that garnered him the nickname, Mr. Fat Paws. Everyone in the neighborhood knew him, talked to him and loved him. But we noticed changes, more bets, more trainers, meds, acupuncture, but nothing was helping. Something was very wrong with my baby's little brain. After months and months of agonizing and fear, on Monday, February 8th, my life changed again, and my heart shattered into a billion pieces as Dudley sweetly, peacefully crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Although I know that crossing ended his pain and suffering, it just made mine and his Daddy's greater. In my shattered heart, I always will be "Dudley's Mom" - that shattered heard that hears nothing but the never-ending silence. No more barks at the UPS man, nor more running around the yard, no more Dudley kisses, and no more soft bully snores. Mommy and Daddy will never, ever forget you sweet, sweet bully baby. Mommy misses you and will always, always love you Dudley.

    Oh I am so very sorry to here this My prayers are with you and Scott I know how much you loved Dudley Kathleen
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Kathleen, I can't even put into words how SO very sorry I am about Dudley… I know how much you loved and adored your big boy You did everything humanely possible for him, and it breaks my heart to know that nothing changed the outcome. Dudley had a wonderful life w/you & Scott, and he was truly living like a KING… We will miss him SO much here at EBN and all of his funny stories.

    I'm here for you Kathleen if you need me, I know how difficult this can be… RIP Dudley… Big Beautiful Boy

    Kathleen my heart breaks for you both. May your sweet boy rest in peace, no longer in pain, and look down on us from above until we're reunited again. I will be praying for your loss. From one bully mama to another, sending you the biggest hugs.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.
