Brett Buckner: Goodbye to Ringo - Anniston Star

The night before the appointment with the vet, the family gathered to say goodbye, to offer a last scratch behind the ear and a pat on the head. Per usual, Ringo didn't really care for such things.

As I've joked too many times these past few days, I've had Ringo for so many years and yet I've never been sure if he even liked me. He was like a cat, willing to accept affection only on his terms.

He was aloof, but I loved him anyway. That's why I chose to put him to sleep. I could live with the thought of making the decision too early, but I'd never forgive myself for holding on too long. I didn't want him to suffer, either from pain or the humiliation of no longer being able to get up to go to the bathroom.

Bonham died suddenly last summer. For Jellybean, that was terribly confusing. She went to school and he was fine. She came home and he was gone. She still won’t say that Bonham's dead. Instead she makes hand gestures or covers her eyes and ears, like when the parents kiss on "Boy Meets World."

But with Ringo, Jellybean got to say goodbye. My Lovely Wife told her that Bonham would be able to show Ringo what heaven was like, since it had been Ringo that had to show Bonham what it was like to live with a loving family after we brought him home from the shelter.

During those days of "lasts" — last walk, last bath, last chicken biscuit from Chick-Fil-A — before Ringo was put to sleep, the hardest was the last car ride. He'd always loved to ride in the car, to sit up front, sniff the air and stare down dogs in other cars. It...
