Buddy, a friend of Chessie Rescue WI was fondly known as “Blind Buddy” . I first heard of Buddy years ago when I was contacted to see if we could take him into rescue. I said we could-but then was told that someone was coming to see Buddy and they would let me know if we were still needed. Buddy was adopted. Buddy had been found sitting near a burned out mobile home-apparently he ran off during the fire-but his people left and didn’t come back-Buddy did come back and waited for his humans-but instead he was adopted by a wonderful new family. Shortly after Buddy was adopted, I received an e-mail from Buddy’s new mom-Lauren-upon adopting Buddy it was learned he was almost blind-and shortly after he was totally blind. Lauren became his eyes and one of Buddy’s favorite thing was retrieving-even though he was blind. Through the years Lauren and I e-mailed back and forth about Buddy-I rec’d great pictures of him-we always talked of getting together so I could meet Buddy, but in this busy world it never happened-hopefully I will see Buddy one day anyway. I was sad to get an e-mail to let me know Buddy passed away in Sept. I will miss Buddy-I know his “mom” does.
