My Tail of Devotion for Buddy (In Memory)

How I miss the old fellow. He had become quite deaf in his last couple of years. When I had been gone and came home, he would be lying in the yard watching for me through the fence. No amount of calling or clapping would get his attention since he couldn't hear it. If I walked up and touched him he would jump so I had to figure out ways to get his attention. When I finally did, he would jump around like a puppy, running in circles, so glad to see me.

One day when he was 15 and couldn't go very fast on walks, I decided to take him for a walk. It was a cold day. We had been snow bound all week and there was still lots of snow on the ground. He loved the snow. As we got out the front door, I dropped my glove and as I bent to pick it up I dropped his leash. He took off running so fast I couldn't believe it. I couldn't call him back since he was deaf so I took off in hot pursuit. He ran two blocks to the green belt where we alwasy walked and waited for me there. I was terrified since he had to cross two streets. Thank goodness there was no traffic. I couldn't believe that he could run that fast when he was having trouble walking. Of course I was all bundled up and could hardly move. That's how excited he was about a walk in the snow after having cabin fever for a few days.
