Thanks guys...I only had Buddy in my life for just short of 3 months...I did love him very much...he came to me from a high-kill animal control facility back in July...he had some issues with aggression that made him a poor candidate for adoption, but we were really making progress and he was the best little snuggler...the vet has no idea why he died...all I know is that he was fine when I left on Saturday morning, but he was very ill when I got back Sunday night...I left my daughter in charge while I was gone...she is 21 and I thought she could handle it, but working with a large number of special needs dogs is a labor of love...to her, I think it is just labor...Her heart is not in it and she did not even notice Buddy was ill...I do not think Buddy had any underlying health issues, but we can't rule it out...he had a veterinary evaluation when he came, but it is always anyone's guess as to what these little guys have had to endure...I have yet another hole in my heart...my little Bud-Bud is sadly missed...I am so grateful that he came to me on his way home...I feel blessed to have been in his life, even if it was not for nearly as long as I would have liked it to be...

Poor Buddy... How old was he? Sorry again for your loss... I've had my rescued dog only 6 weeks, and I can't imagine life without him. I'd be crushed if he were taken from me...

I'm so sorry. I do believe that he stopped in to visit you. When our husky was put to sleep that night I swear I saw her come down the alley and stopped to stare at me and then kept right on walking. I ran right to the alley in the direction she was going and there was no way she could have escaped the alley because it was fenced off on both sides and by the time that I got there the dog was no where to be seen. Also some people have the motion detector lights and none of them went off until I ran past. So I really do believe that you saw Buddy and he was stopping in to say goodbye.

You're not crazy at all . . . just very in tune. I've seen and heard my Buffy several times since she died.

You gave Buddy three months of love in a lifetime that, if not for you, might have been completely devoid of that. What a gift!
