If you’ve been a follower of my blog for very long,
you know that our sweet Cleopatra passed away
during the summer Olympics.
(Lonnie and Buzzbee checking out the pool cover)
Our intention was to let Lonnie be an only child. But then
our neighbor told us a few weeks ago that when we left
for work in the morning he was going outside and howling
a sad howl. Upon further investigation, Kenny found that
he had started digging….I guess to get to our neighbor’s dogs
for companionship. Also, Kenny’s mom said that when she
came to clean on Tuesday’s that Lonnie was no longer
afraid of the broom or the vacuum and stayed right by her
side the entire time she was at the house.

Obviously, he was lonely and needed a “buddy” during the day.
I started scouring Petfinder and most of the dogs I found that
I thought would be a good match for him were always in far
away places. I had also only been looking at female dogs.
(isn’t that the sweetest face?!)
Then I happened upon “Buddy” on craigslist….he was 5 and looking
for a new home.
I contacted the person who posted and asked if
they had a picture of him…..this is what I received….
I mean, look at that face….how adorable!
She said he was sweet and loving and got along
great with kids and other animals.
Now here is the kicker…..the lady’s name was

If that isn’t the universe smacking you right in the face
and telling you “THIS IS THE DOG FOR YOU” then I
don’t know what is!

Kenny talked to Destiny and made a time for the
dogs (and us) to meet. So happy that they took right
up with each other….not a snip or a growl….just lots of
sniffing and licking and playing.
(Lonnie gives up his dog bed for Buzzbee)
After we got them home last night, Lonnie went
over to his dog bed and scratched it and lay in
it for a few minutes then got up and looked at
Buddy….Buddy came over and scratched at the bed
and then stretched out and Lonnie slept on the floor.
(Buzzbee loves the dog bed)
After a while, we brought in another dog bed and they
played for a while and then curled up for a nap.
(Buzzbee and Lonnie….all tuckered out from playing)
Buddy, or as we are now calling him,
“Buzzbee”, is fitting right in!
He’s learned how to use the stairs to get up
onto our bed and we all snuggled up together last
night for our first “cold snap” of the fall.
He likes to sleep in just as much as Lonnie does,
yes, he’s fitting right in!
