There really isn’t anything sadder than losing one’s beloved dog. Sadly, actor James Marsden recently experienced this heartbreak when his dog Buddy crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Here is his tribute to his deceased family dog.
Love. Healing. The center of their little universe. Their best friend.
This is how the 44-year-old Sonic the Hedgehog star described his canine companion in an emotional tribute to his deceased family dog posted on Instagram last month.
The photo gallery featured several snapshots of Buddy with him and in other family photos with his children, Jack, and Mary James. In his caption, Marsden wished for his sweet Buddy to rest peacefully and hopes that they will meet again.
Condolences to The Family
Fans quickly flooded his comments section to extend their condolences to Marsden and his family. Fellow Hollywood A-lister Kaley Cuoco was one of his sympathizers.
She said that she has been in the same situation as he was, and there is nothing like it. Unfortunately, the actress’s dog named Norman also passed away last January.
Jack, Marsden’s eldest son, also paid a tribute of his own in his Instagram account. He said that Buddy was his first dog, whom he got during Christmas when he was only eight years old.
Jack also shared that he asked for a dog because he felt like he was ready to take on that kind of responsibility. He further hoped that they would have a deep connection. And unsurprisingly, they did.
He continued his post by saying that they shared many memories from the day he came into his life, up until the day he said goodbye. The 20-year-old musician said that he and Buddy grew up side by side and did many things together, such as playing, laughing, and holding each other.
He ended his touching piece by taking that opportunity to thank Buddy for the life he shared with his family. Emotionally, he said that he appreciated the late canine more than he could ever imagine.
He took that opportunity to thank Buddy for all he had done. Jack said he would never have another dog like him. No dog will ever take his place—after all, Buddy was not just a pet; he was his best friend.
Sending love and virtual hugs to the Marsden family! In my mind, Buddy is running happily in dog heaven, waiting for the Marsden family to ultimately join him in the years to come.
