My son died 4 months ago tomorrow. He was 31. His dog Buddy was with him from the time he was 12. We didn’t think Buddy would be around for long after Sam died. But he is. He is 19. He went to stay with one of my other sons, but the stress was too much, and so Buddy is coming out to live with us in two weeks. I’m so happy to take him. He has to travel clear across Canada and I hope he will be OK on the plane. ( cabin).
I probably won’t have Buddy for too long. At 19 I am sure he is on borrowed time. But I will spoil him for what time he does have left. And when the time comes for Buddy to cross over, I know that as I hand him over to Sam in the spirit world, our hands will touch briefly. It will be my honor to hand Buddy over to Sam, and he will then take him home.
