I can't believe that a year has gone by already. A year ago today my daughters and I left in the wee hours to drive down to Ohio to meet Danny (dborgers) and adopt my Buddy. Danny drove up from Nashville and we met half way. What a special day that was. I am so grateful that we made that trip. I was having such a terrible time after the recent loss of my Echo. I was heartbroken and this little fellow snuck into my heart and helped me to heal. My daughter Melissa was the organizer of the event. She knew what I needed and she found Buddy here on GRF.
We met Danny half way in Lima, Ohio. Danny had arrived the night before and had a motel room so that we could have a visit and get acquainted with Buddy. We had a lovely lunch and shared many stories. It was so nice to meet Danny. Danny and Jane are true dog angels. Danny had rescued Buddy and taken great care of him. What began as a terrible trauma at about 6 months (getting thrown out of a moving truck and shot at....nevermind what I think of those **^$%^#) it turned out okay for Buddy because he eventually found his way into Danny home. His brother Andy was a wonderful big brother and taught him well.....how to be a super little boy.
Now Buddy enjoys spending lots of time with his cousins Bailey, Burgundy and Sadie. And of course lots of time cuddling with me....he really is a little cuddle bug.
Here are a few recent pictures of Buddy.

It doesn't get much better than the lake and a ball
