My companion dog of 10 years, died Sunday morning. We share on here so many topics that make us feel better but Buddy was always there unconditionally to make certain I was Ok. He followed me everywhere, encouraged me to exercise if I could, he cuddled with me on the bed if I didn't.
He was always ready for a car ride and to go somewhere and people would happily approach him and me and compliment what a wonderful dog he was when I felt I had nothing wonderful to talk about in my life. He encouraged me to socialize by always being anxious to make friends for me even On days I didn't think I had energy to talk to anyone.
Buddy how I miss you and thank you for all the days you spent by My side so I was not so lonely in my pain.
I bet there are many of you who have animal friends that help you get through your hardest days...our compainion animals can be a great help in getting us past our pain.
