Day 15: Happy-Go-Lucky Buddy

 Buddy: Feb 14, 1998-January 19, 2011
Mom's little Buddy passed on today.  Our faithful friend will be missed.  One of the happiest dogs you could ever meet.    He loved walks on the greenbelts and he was a nose on a leash.  He taught our dog and bird how to howl.  Buddy loved getting his back scratched. He was definitely an entertaining dog who brought us many smiles and tons of laughter.  We will always keep his happy-go-lucky spirit in our hearts.

Charlie was with my mom today during this difficult time. He helped bury him in the backyard.   I am so amazed at with all he went through...and how he still did not cave on the vegan challenge.

I mean, comfort food (with meat and cheese) is the ultimate escape during times like these.  I am so impressed with his strength  and his willpower.  Only 6 more days to go...
