In Memoriam: Butters

By Peggy Douthett, published on November 4th, 2022
"Heaven at Home is made of compassionate people who treat you like family. I am so glad I found them to help our family through a difficult time. "

On October 11, 2022, we lost a cherished member of our family. 13 years with Butters was not enough, but we know he is at peace.

Everyone who met Butters fell in love with him. He was always at the door to greet you with kisses and tail wags before he ran to get his favorite ball for you to throw. He loved to play tug-of-war, watch squirrels from the window, and wrestle with his favorite boy, Caleb. He liked to lay in the sun with Gemma while she colored and steal her stuffed animals to cuddle with. He liked to have snoring competitions with his dad, and Butters could snore like a champ. He loved to snuggle with his mom and hog her blanket, and paw at her book until she put it down and pet him. Butters was an attention hog, so much so he would lay in the middle of our board games so we would pet him. He always had to be close to us, whether it be nuzzled up against us or proving 70 pound dogs actually are lap dogs. Butters was a lover through and through.

Our house feels empty with Butters in it. He will always be loved and remembered. He was the best dog and his mom’s best friend. We miss him so much.
