A family I am very close with had to say good-bye to their beloved dog Buddy yesterday. Buddy was my friend too. He welcomed me into his home like I was a member of the family and always brought a huge smile to my face. As someone who has also had to say good-bye to pets in my life I understand the loss. Though he wasn't my dog, I grieve with them but smile at all the wonderful memories I have of Buddy. I am so happy to have shared a part of Buddy's life as he was so special.
