A New Member of Our Family

Last fall we lost Sadie, our sweet mixed-breed dog we had a part of our family for 17 years. Her loss was devastating, especially to me as I work from home. She was my office mate, my friend….my sweet Sadie Lady.

While we weren’t really “looking” for a new pet, over the holidays we met a dog who needed a home and things just kinda fell into place.

Meet Buddy!

Buddy is a four-month old miniature dachshund with lots of personality and energy. He loves to sit by my side while I work, sleep in my lap, wear cute sweaters and play with the kids. We are all in love. 

We originally called him Ollie (short for Oliver)  – doesn’t he look kind of British?!

But our love for the movie Elf eventually took over and he became Little Buddy Diapers (Buddy for short). He’s a dog…raised by humans and sticks to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.

I’m kidding.

I forgot what it’s like to have an infant in the house and Buddy and I have gotten close during our middle of the night outside “pee” and “poop” excursions. We are still working on mastering that. In due time!

Meanwhile he is getting lots of love and hugs and snuggles and praise and we are smitten.

I thought you should know!
