Buzz Lightyear has been gone two years. I still miss my dog, so this year I started a "Month of Buzz" project. I've been trying to find the right words that describe how much I miss laughing about his determination to get food, his go anywhere/do anything attitude, his desire to experience anything and everything. But most of all, a way to describe how I feel when I see photos that are uniquely him.
Buzz was a dog I adored beyond words, no matter how hard I've tried to find the right ones. A dog I had to learn to love, and then it was just like he became a part of me. A dog that made me laugh until I cried. He saw me through 16 years of my life, as I went from child to adult. And the whole time he was my steadfast companion, bringing joy to all who had the pleasure of meeting him.
Buzz was more than my heart dog and more than my soul dog. He was the best teacher I've ever had. He taught me about the important things in life: sit outside just to feel the breeze, take an early morning walk over dew covered grass, and how to just be. If I was working at my desk, he was curled up under it, with his head on my feet.
I miss him, two years later. I know I'll always miss him. Thankfully I have years and years of memories as well as numerous photos that captured his life.
I'll always remember the most important lesson my Buzz Lightyear. Never give up. Keep going, To Infinity and Beyond!
