Eddie, Rosie, Buddah

I bought a copy of Rescuing Sprite at a little book store here in Oak Harbor. At the time, I was looking for a gift for our next door neighbor.
My wife and I are very good friends with our neighbors and our dogs are best friends who play together almost daily. We watch their dog when they’re away and they do the same for us. I retired from the U.S. Navy in 2005 after 22 years. I never had a dog while I was in the Navy, but missed having one since I was a kid. When I was fifteen my dog Eddie, my best friend at the time, passed away…I was devistated. One of the first things I did when I retired from the Navy was rescue a dog. Her name is Rosie, she is five years old and she is wonderful. She is my absolute best pal that I spoil. We have adopted another dog, Buddah, who is twelve years old. My wife and I plan our lives around our dogs and wouldn’t have it any other way. When I come home from work they are always glad to see me and cheer me up no matter how stressfull a day I’ve had. Rescuing Sprite described exactly the way I feel about our dogs and since Buddah is twelve and getting on in years, I have to wonder why I was drawn to that little book store and your book was the first book I looked at and bought. It brought back many memories and helped me reflect on how lucky I am to share my pals lives with them…they give me far more than I give them. It’s never easy loosing your best pal, but the life shared is worth the grief. I believe dogs help us cope and prepare us for things we may not understand at the time. Great book, it described exactly how I feel. I will keep as reference when I need it. Thank-you.
