Can you write a letter to a dog? Buddy and I would say, yes. Buddy was my dog, and he understood everything I told him to do. If I lost anything, he would look as long as I did. He loved people. I saw Buddy everywhere I looked. Even when I fell, which I sometimes did, he came and sat next to me to protect me. He never forgot anything he learned. He was with me all his life. I gave him away once for about a week but I could not get along without him. He was named Buddy by a man I was married to because they would always be buddies.
Buddy loved to play, and we had a game we played every night called lights out. He is with me everyday in my heart. I miss him and will always love him.
