We adopted Buddy on Saturday, December 3rd, 2005 and it has been the best thing we ever did. There is a song by a group named Savage Garden and it’s called “I knew I loved you before I met you” and that’s how we feel about Buddy. We had never even met Buddy before we decided to adopt him and loved him “blindly”. All we knew about him were some of his habits and traits that his foster mother told us about and that was it.

We were kind of nervous about getting a new fur-baby since our family was already pretty full. We have a Yorkshire Terrier named Tigger who has been with us for 5 years, a Tabby cat named Kisses who has been with us for a little over a year, 2 human children, and a house under renovations, so the decision to get a new pet was a well thought out one.

The whole family, Buddy included, adapted so quickly that we can’t even imagine our lives without him. All three fur-babies sleep with my husband and I and they all have their own “spots” in the bed. Tigger sleeps in the middle, Kisses sleeps above my head, and Buddy sleeps across my chest (and for the most part, we are usually always nose-to-nose) He just waits for me to look at him so he can lick me to death.

It’s been three months already that Buddy has come into our lives and we look forward to many more months with him. He has this energy that just makes it impossible to be in a bad mood when he’s around. Everyone that meets him absolutely adores him. We tell people that if Buddy was human, he’d probably be a Wal-Mart people greeter, that’s just the kind of personality he has.

Thank you, CCRT, for bringing Buddy into our lives! You have helped make our family complete.
