Remembering Daddy Buzz

Sophia's Major Buzz
Feb 01, 2002 - Mar 24, 2016

Today we are remembering
 Hazel's daddy
who passed away last week

Buzz with Brutus (Hazel's brother)

At 14 yrs old Buzz had been in failing health
Last week he deteriorated quickly.
 By Wednesday he was no longer eating or drinking.
Thursday morning Buzz was released from his pain and joined his sweetheart Sophia at the Rainbow Bridge.

Most of you know that Buzz and Sophia
 lived with Mom's human daughter.

She adopted/rescued the sweet pair in 2004 when their original owners no longer wanted them inside their home.
They were living in an outdoor kennel, 
filthy and smelly and after a few weeks 
it became obvious that Sofie was pregnant

The thing we will remember most about Buzz 
is what a wonderful daddy he was

He watched, he worried, 

He loved his babies

Hazel & her Daddy Buzz

Mom went to visit when the pups were 4 weeks old 

and witnessed firsthand Buzz's devotion to his familyl 

Little Blondie went to live with a good friend 
and of course you know that Hazel came to live with us

Brutus stayed with his mom and dad 
and they made quite the trio 

You would always see the three of them 
piled in the chair together

 Buzz and Brutus were as close as a father and son could be

and even more so after Sofie died suddenly in 2011.

 It was so much fun to have a family reunion
there was no pug sitter when the peeps came for a visit

Brutus - Buzz - Hazel
And we even got to go visit at their house last summer

Now brother Brutus is sad and confused

He has never been without his Dad
and could use some prayers

Rest easy now Buzz 

Thank you for being the best Daddy
We will see you in Hazel's smile

We are the PugRanch Kids
Bailey, Hazel & Mabel

  35. Rest in Peace, sweet Buzz.

  36. I am so very sorry for your loss of Buzz. What a wonderful pug, and he certainly was a handsome fella, and such a caring pug father. Those photos of all the pugs together are just so adorable. Looks like they are such a tight-knit family. The photo of Buzz and Brutus asleep in a "pug totem" formation is one of the cutest things I've ever seen. I'm sure Buzz will be greatly missed. Keeping you all in my thoughts during this difficult time.
