Buddy was stubborn and hard-headed, as most Beagles are, but he was full of unconditional love and devotion. He was a gentle soul who had not one enemy in the world. Everyone adored him, including other animals.
I took these first two photos yesterday morning. The images below are from the past 7 years or so. It amazes me how much Buddy had changed in those years, from the color of his fur to the increased wisdom in his eyes. I only wish our children had a chance to know him during his youth when he was so playful and affectionate.
My husband and I have such fond memories of Buddy, which we will cherish forever. Just last night, my husband was recalling the first time he met Buddy when he was just a 1yr old puppy. I'm sure we will talk about many more such memories with fondness in the years to come. Buddy will always have a place in our hearts.
