Terrific photos!! I especially love the 'goofy' shot of Buddy smiling and showing his teeth. So funny

I am so proud Laura is allowing me to be Buddy's 'Dogfather' (godfather to a dog LOL). After 8 months with us we grew to love him dearly. It's so heartwarming to get updates and see him having the time of his life. And what a life he's having thanks to Laura and her wonderful family. God worked this whole thing out.

Buddy was 4 months old when some idiot rednecks slowed down and threw him out the door. This is the story of the day a friend of a friend saw it happen. Buddy jumped in her car. 2 months later they called and told me about this sweet boy. I went over and met him, then went home and got shampoo stuff, gave him a bath, and took him to a couple vets.

Laura adopted him December 19th. Buddy couldn't be living with a more wonderful couple. It was truly a miracle, thanks to this site

Where Buddy was dumped and found:


Where he learned to be a "Master Ballman". He fell in love with tennis balls at first sight. He was a natural!! LOL:
(Soundtrack from "Field of Dreams")

LOVED the videos!!! Buddy was so lucky - the woods, a train, the convergence of roads - - the right place at the right time just doesn't seem to capture the reality well enough...

BTW, Hannah burst out in "alert" barking while I watched the first one and I had to skip back to the shots outside of the car at the hardware store. To my surprise, I saw Andy making a guest appearance - just like any good brother would

Ya, Buddy was a very lucky dog. Another 30 seconds one way or the other ...

It was Laura's daughter, Melissa, who was the matchmaker for Buddy and Laura. And what a match it is!! An answer - by the next morning! - to heartfelt prayers said the night I found out Andy had cancer. Kudos to Melissa. And Laura? Buddy got the "Mom Of The Century"!

Andy went riding around with me this weekend. Too dreary for swimming.

Danny thank you so much for sharing Buddy's story and taking so much time to put these videos together. It's hard to imagine what might have happened to Buddy if your friend had arrived even one minute later. I'm grateful every day that I was so lucky to adopt this precious cuddlebug and lucky to have become friends with you Danny.... You are a true gem

The feeling is 100% mutual, Laura. On a scale of 1 to 10, you and your family are 20's. To think a strange puppy and strangers on a blog would come into our lives and become friends. Just awesome. Not only was Buddy's fate a split second timing event, but so was finding this wonderful site out of hundreds of thousands of Google results the night I got Andy's lymphoma diagnosis and found GFR. Only Heaven could have put it all together.

Ya'll, Buddy is in DOG HEAVEN with Laura and her family. Talk about living 'a dog's life'. If 99.999% of people were so lucky

We look forward to pictures and videos as time goes on. Speaking for myself, they always put a HUGE smile on my face.
