Yes, I know I've gotten bad news before about our dogs. But trust me, it never, ever for a single moment gets easier to hear. Buddy has been through so much in dealing with his allergies, and we finally had them sorted out. And today, to add a proverbial insult to injury, I was reminded by someone that exactly one year ago today, Buddy came into the rescue. That just added a whole other range of emotions and sadness over the hopes that I had for him.
