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.

Buddy's Saturday morning 'coffee' spot



Proud boy


Buddy with his cousin Sadie (also adopted through GRF by my daughter Sarah)


A letter from brother Andy


Buddy with his cousins (good thing the squirrel is on the outside)




All the cousins


A picture from a few minutes ago. Buddy comes to work with me and here he is sleeping under my desk


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






Here is Buddy a year ago with Andy (just before our trip)

Congratulations Laura and Buddy! I think it was definitely fate that you two found each other (with the help of Danny) He looks so happy now and he's certainly found a wonderful, loving home and has become great friends with his cousins!

Hope that you both have a brilliant day celebrating

A Message From Us

Buddy and Laura. We're so happy for you. It's always hard to tell from pictures, but Buddy has one of those 'one in a million' personalities. So gentle, so sweet, loves everybody, always up for fun. Everyone who ever met him here remarked on what an incredibly special boy Buddy is. Even as a 6 month old puppy when he moved in here, he was just as sweet as they come. Gentle, never pushy in any respect, eager to please, always up for fun and lovin'.

We are thrilled he's Laura's baby boy now. Both Buddy and Laura are very special 'God's kids', full of love.

It has been one of the most heartwarming experiences of my life to watch Buddy's new life with Laura and her amazing family. He has so much fun, and reports are he charms the socks off of everyone he meets. Nothing's changed. He is a very special boy, and Laura is a very special mom. I am honored she's allowed me to be Buddy's 'Dogfather' (Godfather for a dog LOL).

Danny, I have gone by that hardware store and stretch of highway many times.
Buddy had somebody watching over him that day, one lucky pup!
Thank you for taking him in and Thank you Laura, for giving him his forever home
