Thank you for taking the time to read my story. This is the story of my baby his name was Buddy. I first met buddy while I was living in Italy. I was stationed there with my ex husband we could not have pets where we lived. My ex husband was gone from the home during this time for a couple weeks of training. I went downstairs and was going to the store and there was this dog whining at me through my downstairs neighbors outside balcony. I had no dog food but I went upstairs and got the hungry dog some popcorn. He ate it off the ground. My neighbor came home later and we gave him a bath and I left him to sleep in the kitchen. I had informed my ex that I had a surprise, he got upset stating it better not be what he thought it was. Well he came back home and had seen it was a dog, not being able to have pets we went and took this poor dog into a field and dropped him off. I told my ex husband watch that dog is going to come back he stated that the dog would not come back. Sure enough the next morning the dog was sitting at our front door. Buddy he was later named had found his way back to me, several miles, roads and fields and found his way back to me. We decided to keep him so he stayed with someone my ex worked with. Buddy came into my life when I was 19 years old I am now 32 years old. My baby would smell like cinnamon rolls sometimes and we would laugh at how he smelled so good. Buddy was the funniest most human like dog that anyone had ever seen, his spirit was different than a normal dog. When I was 22 I went through a dark time in my life with the divorce of my ex husband I kept buddy after the divorce and he helped me during that time. Buddy and I would dance, there were songs that I would dance to with my ex husband that I started to dance with Buddy instead to those songs. I was literally in love with this little dog, he was my baby. This week on Tuesday 11.27.18 my husband and I took my baby down to the vet to have him put to sleep. he was tired and has lost about five pounds in a quick timeframe. We knew it was time, he was tired he wasn't happy anymore. I think he was passing anyway but to be humane we decided to put him to sleep. everyday I am crying for my baby. I still talk to him like he is there. I hope that when it comes my time to go that he is there waiting for me and we will be reunited, he will run up to me with his hair blowing in the wind like he did when I found him. Mama loves you Buddy, I always will, and I will never forget you. I love you and wish I could still have you around but I know I cannot. Feeling your heart stop beating when they put you to sleep makes my heart drop. I hope you are not upset that we took you to be put to sleep but it was best at that time, you were so tired and not happy. Mama loves you I wish I could hold you and pet you again my baby.

So sorry for your loss. Beautiful story and memories and tribute to your baby Buddy. I feel your pain, and hope that you may find peace soon. Clearly you loved your little boy, and it was out of loved that you let him go. You gave him love and a happy home and you two will meet again one day. I am certain.
