buddy dog

My best friend in Denver just told us the sad news that her dog Buddy has cancer and will eventually die from it – it could be months or a year, depending on the course of treatment my friend decides on for Buddy. 

Let me tell you, I love me some Buddy Dog.  He’s so smart and protective, even of me who isn’t his mama.  When Lynn lived in Orlando we would dog sit for her puppies while she was away so I feel bonded to Buddy.  We’ve had lots of camping trips together, even spent some time in a canoe together.

Buddy put up with his sister Athena with such stoicism.  I know it couldn’t have been easy, but he managed to love the little yellow dervish and teach her a thing or two.

So here’s to you Buddy, we’ll miss you lots.
