As a child he constantly brought animals home that he'd find at the dump or abandoned. His love for animals was great, but because of who he was, he had to really bond to a dog to feel a real connection. So, most of the dogs became mine that he brought home except a few that he bonded with. After he got married he and his wife found a desserted puppy that they forever called Puppy. Puppy became his wife's dog. He loved Puppy but he bonded with her instead of him. Probably about a year later he found Buddy at a dump. He was just a puppy, some weird mix of what I'm not sure but from day one, Buddy and he were meant to be together. So Buddy and Puppy were raised together. But Buddy had issues of his own. He couldn't stand to be separated from Jonathan. Back in December I baby sat him while Jonathan went to a party with some friends here and I think I even posted about that dog moaning and groaning and crying and pacing the floor. I couldn't console him and I got no sleep that night.
Even though Jonathan and his wife were divorced, he never could really let go of her and she of him. And at the time of his death he was living with her again as "Friends" which she may of thought that but we, his family know he couldn't accept that. (another long story). Anyway, next to Jonathan. Buddy was the happiest being with the dog Puppy that he was raised with and with the ex wife. So that is where Buddy is and where I think he belongs. His wife is almost fanatical about dogs, to the point that she puts her feelings for her dog above any human, (another long story) but at any rate I know he'll mourn for Jonathan but at least he is with another dog and a person he knows. And I feel sure he will be loved and taken care of.
