Norbert Nicholas Buglino-Dutcher July 2002-January 8, 2015
I hope this doesn't offend anyone but I am not a traditionally religious person, though I respect all religions greatly. My beliefs are best summed up by the Iris De Ment song let the mystery be:
As such I am not sure that I will "see" Norbert gain, nor is his Dad. However, we are both comforted by the fact that Norbert is always with us because in the 12 and a half years he shared his life with us he made us into better people. We adopted Norbert from a high kill shelter when we were 24 years old and we are now in our late 30s, he truly helped make us the people we are. Norbert was a constant role model for me in his sweetness, loyalty, patience, kindness, and freedom from worry. In moving past his loss I want only to strive to be more like him, and to live more as he did, day by day.
We will miss our boy every day but we will move forward and try to be as happy as he was and as he would want us to be and we will soon share the love we had for him with another dog, most likely a pug as we truly feel that Norbert was an "undercover pug."
We will be taking the next few weeks off from blogging to process our loss and to move forward but we will be on facebook. Thank you all for your love and support it means more to us then you can ever know.
Note you may notice this post is different from what was here yesterday I don't know why bot blogger ate our original tribute post and when I checked it this morning big chunks of it were missing. I couldn't let that be as I need a memorial for my boy I am afraid this one is not as good as the original, but of course no memorial would ever be fitting.
