No, this week we pick a dog who is going through what we all fear the most. Missing our Mom.
Our good friend Buddy Boy has been without his Mom for awhile now. He doesn't really know why she's not living with them. From what I can tell reading my Mom's Facebook page his Mommy is sick because of their house. Now my Mom is sick of our house, but it isn't making her sick. I don't know my Human well enough to tell the difference, all I know is Mommy is here with me and Buddy Boy's isn't.
Poor Buddy Boy is stuck him with his Dad. Now we all love our Dads. But it's just not natural to be left home alone with one. Plus, according to his Mom's posting on Facebook Buddy's Dad keeps house like a homeless man tends to his tent.
Buddy Boy's Mom is at her Mom's house and Buddy Boy understands this. He doesn't want her to be sick. But he does miss her so. And, if possible, she misses him even more, so we should all say a prayer that they are together very soon.
She calls him whenever she can. His Daddy answers the phone, if he can find it. He then puts down the phone and Mom and pup talk. I will give Buddy credit because my Mom's voice on the phone freaks me out but Buddy doesn't let it bother him at all. He gets the ball when he tells him to and brings it to the phone.
This weekend they were reunited for a marvelous day full of blueberry muffins and loving scratches and licks.
We all hope and pray that this separation ends seen.
Buddy Boy you are our Pup of the Week because you have been so brave in facing life without her. You are our Pup of the Week because we hope it will make your Mom smile. And you are our Pup of the Week because you are as special a dog we know.Buddy
