Arrival Story: Buddy was found on the streets infested with fleas, heart worms, whip worms, hungry and scared. The person who rescued him turned him over to us. Thank you Mr Joey for your kindness. We tried to find his owner but could not. From the day he walked into our house he seemed to feel at home. He is very protective of his new family. We love him very much.
Bio: Buddy has come a long way toward good health. He does not like his Omega3 but takes it anyway. He loves to cuddle in the recliner with Mom or Dad and likes to sleep in the people bed with us. We love him very much and will not let him become homeless again.
Aug. 17, 2006 was the day we went and picked Buddy up from the man who found him. I don't know what the actual date of his birth was but I felt like the day he became part of our home was the first of his NEW life so I celebrated that as his birthday. Aug. 17, 2006 was a perfect day and though it was long ago it in many ways seems like just yesterday. Buddy has been gone for a long time but he is still in my heart. I still love him and always will. There have been MANY dogs come and go from our home and there will still be more but not one was like Buddy. It's so hard or maybe just impossible to explain to another person what he meant to me. He was loved and still is.
Happy Birthday my Buddy. I love you. Your a good dog. I miss you very much.
There have been many who have come through our home since I went away. Some very sweet and cute and in great need of help. We have taken them in and I told each one that they are safe and Mom and Dad will take care of them.. The last 2 they took in are still here and they take care of them and let them know they are loved, they are important, they are of value and Mom and Dad will help them in any way they need help. The last one is a big dog. He is my size. He is a very handsome boy that Mom named Beau. He has ways that make her think of me and she cries when her memories of me come. This morning she is having a really bad time. I slept close to her last night and she misses me very much. I try to stay as close to her as she needs me to be but it's hard for her not being able to see me except in photos and inside her mind and heart. She is working to get a little girl Boston from the pound. They want to kill her and Mom is saying she will come get her. Her name is Susie and I am trying to help her feel safe and let her know Mom and Dad will get her soon and she will be fine. I'll stay close to Mom and try to make her feel better. Maybe when Susie gets here tomorrow she will feel happy. I hope so.
The year is off to a good start. Mom and dad took in 3 dogs since the first and they have had some adopted out. I watched over them when they took in Ginger. That was tuff. I had to work hard to find her the right home. My Master had to help me with that one. I handled Dew and Kissy's adoptions. They were easy cause those 2 are sweet dogs. Now they took in Drew. He is going to be a challenge. He is such a puppy. I will have to ask the Master for help with Drew.
I see that Ollie is having a little problem. He has allergies. He will be OK. He's tired. His body just does not work as it used to. I remember how that felt. Not good. I don't think it will be too long before Ollie comes here with me. It will be a while yet though. I know it will be hard on Dad when Ollie comes here. Dad really loves that old dog.
Mom is doing ok it seems. She still talks to me and about me to people. She still has my collar on the side of her bed. Sometimes she holds it and smells it and she talks to me. I wish I could tell her I miss her too but that would just make her cry more. I asked my friends here if their mom's every stopped crying for them and they said it takes a long time and that moms never forget and neither do dads. Mom said I would always live in her heart and it looks like that is true.
