BUDDY: FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS
We would like to dedicate this years Theme Basket Auction in memory of Buddy, who passed away this week. Buddy came to us as an abandoned dog with special needs, he was born with a deformed front leg and walked around on 3 legs his whole life. We estimate his age to be 15 - 17yrs old. Although we only had Buddy a few month's at the shelter we all grew to love him very much and we know in our hearts we gave him a better life over the past few months.
Buddy had good days and bad days as any senior pet experiences....even on a bad day he still enjoyed doing his job. You see, Buddy soon turned into a part of our staff and tried to reciprocate all the care we gave to him by taking care of the kittens. This year we had an extraordinary amount of kittens without mothers, and Buddy would try to help out and take care of the kittens. You could tell he thoroughly enjoyed his job...if he could smile he would! It was a sight to see this handi-capped old dog giving back to the numerous little kittens we had at the shelter...he was doing his part and making a difference in these kittens lives. We will miss Buddy and this special needs dog will be remembered as a truly special boy who is forever in our hearts!
