Buddy The Dog

Buddy came to us as a stray. The vet said he had a crushed larynx, probably from a collar or choke chain. She said to use a harness instead. Since he is a runaway dog, that's what we do.


Most dogs and cats like back rubs/massages. I look for used baby receiving blankets at yard sales and flea markets. I wash them well and warm them in the dryer on chilly days (Terry towels just takes 20-30 seconds in the microwave also). Then I wrap up Buddy and massage his spine with a circular motion. He loves it. My mom had just finished giving my cat, ZsaZsa a back rub. She got so tickled. Mom passed away in 1999, but I still have fond memories through pictures such as this one. Here are a couple of Buddy being SPOILED after what we think was a hard life before coming to us.

Awwww! What a cutie! And thanks for the idea of warm back massages.


I've been looking for a non-food way to treat my older beagle. This may be just the thing!

Our Jack Russell, also a rescue, was also mistreated and has a condition same as buddy. He can only wear a harness, also, and must be on medication to help with allergies, as the vet said a severe case of sneezing could cause him to die. He is our baby too, and I am going to treat him to this special treatment too!! Thanks for sharing the we love them...Blessings, Vicki

What a cutie pie! Reminds me of my late doggie, Shelby, who was a Pom, and also a stray. Just came to our door one day - I think someone dumped him in our neighborhood.


Buddy is lucky to have you!

I don't blame Buddy for running away from his previous home. He's lucky he was found by such nice people. He's a cutie. Bless you for giving him a good home.

Buddy is slowing down these days. Walks are shorter. Naps are longer. He has several favorite sleeping quarters. His real bed is by my computer chair and on the closet floor behind my long dresses. Then in the living room, his other REAL bed is the one he is sleeping on in this picture.

He takes turns using our two comfortable living room chairs, plus his bed in the garage where his daddy's computer chair is. His "going to bed at night bed" is in the bedroom closet on a triple folded down quilt.


Just so you don't think he is just an inside dog, the other picture is of him napping on the patio glider. A tad spoiled?
