Love Thursday--My Buddy!

My Love Thursday is our little Chihuahua mix Buddy. I found Buddy roaming our streets one morning and took him home. We tried to find his owners by hanging up signs and going door to door but no luck. Because I wanted his owners to have a chance to find him, I sadly took him to animal control since that would probably be one of the first place they would look for him.

Our animal control is required to hold animals for 72 hours to give owners a chance to find them. After 72 hours, they are put up for adoption. No one claimed him so I went back early on the morning of his adoption day and got him. Our best guess is that someone just thought that this was a nice neighborhood and dumped him off on the street corner.

Well, Buddy has been one of the best things that has ever happened to us. We have had several dogs before and have raised them from puppies until they passed away from old age but this little guy just holds a special place in our hearts! We take him on vacation with us whenever we can, he sleeps in our bed and we took him to obedience school, get the picture.

Buddy has got a lot of personality packed away in that little body and he has got us wrapped around his little paw! When you see the pictures below, you will understand why! :-)

Buddy and his favorite stuffed animal Buddy Jr. Unfortunately, he loves his stuffed animals to death because eventually, they get torn apart and their stuffing winds up all over the house!

Buddy looking stoic! Say Cheese!
