It is with extreme sadness that I send this email. Our sweet Buddy (Roger131) passed away suddenly on Saturday, June 22nd at 8:30 pm.

We adopted Buddy on December 29, 2013. From the moment he entered our lives we loved him more than words can describe. Buddy came to us a scared, timid boy, but flourished into the most amazing, playful, loving boy! He truly loved life!

Buddy grew up with Tiffany, another SCR baby that we adopted May 22, 2010. But Buddy’s very best friend, besides my 14 y/o daughter, Emma, was my foster failure, Jazzie, a 4 y/o blue heeler mix. Emma and I loved when Jazzie would try to “herd” Buddy to the door and Buddy would put Jazzie in her place! Buddy and Jazzie were inseparable!

Buddy had a very brief illness that the vet thought we could win, but an abdominal ultrasound done to see if something was causing Buddy to vomit revealed liver cancer. There had been no signs until last Monday. The prognosis was horrible and he died in my arms at piece and knowing just how loved he was.

Our hearts are broken and our house is sad without Buddy.

Tricia and Emma

Roger, (Adopted 12/29/13), is a 4-year-old black and brown cocker who is the sweetest, gentlest dog you will ever see. Surrendered by a kennel in distress and weighing 24.6 lbs., he is healthy, happy, and playful; yet becomes your favorite lap dog at a moment’s notice. Neighborhood children love him, as do all the adults he meets. His favorite activities are chewing knuckle bones, playing ball with his people, and sitting on laps. His playful attitude helps to lift spirits. He has become very interactive, often letting us know when he needs to go outside. He loves going on 2 - 3 walks a day up to an hour or more to help him relieve anxiety. He is fearful of new situations; however, learns to trust over a short time. He “sits, waits, heels, leaves ‘it’, and comes” when called in most circumstances. He is crate and house trained with people who understand his need for reminders when he is outside. He is good alone, but would enjoy another dog in the house for companionship while his people are away. He will make a great pet for a loving and patient family.
