Christa,

For sure God had angels there looking out for Buddy that day on the side of the road. It could have gone so wrong. Buddy's one of God's special kids. Now look at his life! It all worked it out, and Buddy has an amazing forever home and a life full of fun and love.

It is truly a Christmas miracle. Like the ending of "A Miracle on 34th Street".

I'll forever be in awe of how everything worked out all the way around, thanks to prayers, Melissa, and GRF.

I know time flies.... Just back from a long walk, a few extra treats and lots of cuddles. That's the celebration plan for tonight

Melissa and Laura,

We sure have enjoyed the golden retriever calendar. Walking through the den where it hangs in a prominent place always brings a smile to our faces, not only for the calendar, but also for where it came from, when, and why.

Melissa, you sure crerated a miracle Christmas story reaching out about Buddy in response to my post. I was pretty torn up about Andy and Buddy both. The news of Andy's lymphoma diagnosis following his surgery was very very hard to take at that moment. Buddy was setting the ball on my lap for another throw as Andy lay on a cushy pallet nearby. I worried so about both of them, realizing I couldn't give both of them the level of attention I'd been able to give them until then with Andy facing an uncertain and rocky road. It was an amazing answer to heartfelt prayers for both of them.

Look now, a year later. Buddy's in an amazing family having the best life, Andy continues to do well, albeit with occasional bumps in the road as we're experiencing now. It couldn't have turned out better.

And it was so nice meeting all of you as well. Normally I would never have considered adopted a rescue without a home visit, but your videos, pictures, and everything spoke of the amazingly loving family of dog lovers you all are. Thank you.

It was also kind of neat how the first good snowfall Buddy saw was that afternoon in Lima when the snow fell so quickly. And you guys had a nice warm blanket and all that snuggling to warm and comfort him on the way home too. I was so worried he'd be scared. The look on his face in some of the early pictures looked like he was unsure what was going on. But he was enveloped in love and warmth from the get go and adapted to his new life in a New York minute thank to the love, doting, and care he continues to enjoy.

Thank you for making all of this possible. It's been such a bright spot for us since the moment Laura emailed she wanted to adopt Buddy. It really made our Christmas last year, and brings smiles and 'aws' this year.

Danny

I cant believe it was a year ago today that you two found each other (with a little help of your lovely daughter), time goes so fast. Congratulations to you Laura and sweet Buddy, I am so happy for you and wish you have many, many happy and healthy years together. Thank you for sharing those beautiful pictures with us, hope to see them more often.

We're a little late, but still on the right day - - Congratulations and a huge thank you to everyone involved

I'll never forget reading Andy's thread and then later seeing the "new Canadian citizen" thread pop up - - unfortunately, it took me a bit longer than I'd like to admit to realize they were related - - ANYWAY, I was warmed to the core by the love, generosity and, most importantly, faith that brought the stars together for Buddy. My hat is off to you all - you are FABULOUS!!!
