Buddy
11/27/2005 - 2/6/2015Buddy you truly were the best dog ever (at least to me) and you were exactly what I wanted for our wonderful blended family. Every basset our kids see in the future they will remember you and think happy thoughts and memories of you. The author John Grogan wrote, "A dog has no use for fancy cars or big homes or designer clothes. Status symbols mean nothing to him. A treat will do just fine. A dog judges others not by their creed or color or class but by who they are inside. A dog doesn't care if you are rich or poor, clever or dull. Give him your heart and he will give you his." You were really good dog and had my heart. You lived a full life with so many adventures in your 9 short years. There will never be another Buddy. I miss and love you so much. My heart is broken and I know in time my tears will turn into smiles every time I think of you. You were the best dog ever and were so loved. Good bye for now my Buddy boy.Karen KowalczykEast Amherst, New YorkFebruary 9, 2015

We'll miss you BuddyPaul Perrello - February 9, 2015
I only got to know you a few times since you lived way over in Buffalo but I know you were Karen's best-ever buddy and so dear to her heart, I remember how you would go after a scent (even when the rest of us were going the other way)! You will be missed by all who knew you. We'll see you again, Buddy!Diane Mahon - February 9, 2015
So sorry to hear about Buddy...

Glad you were able to spend 9 years with him. Bassets make the best friends.

I'll be sure to give my 5 hounds a hug tonight in honor of Buddy.

Nothing like the love and affection a dog provides. You hit the nail on the head in the memorial you wrote for Buddy!Michael LaJoie - February 9, 2015
What a loved life you lived here, Buddy! You had the best dog Mom, Dad and family I've ever known and you left them with a lifetime of joyful memories. The 'locked in the car with the cookies' story is one that makes me laugh out loud. You brought my dear friend so much happiness and it will carry her and your other loved ones through.Heather Royce - February 9, 2015

Buddy Boy, Buddy Boy!

Look at him in that photo with Barry...I will always love and remember that face and that juicy nose. Karen, he was truly a good dog and he could not have been apart of a more wonderful family!! I will miss our doggie play dates and outings with Buddy, Barry and Ravyn. But I will always remember when they all met for the first time. So much fun!! He will remain in my heart too. I hope you find peace in knowing that Buddy has now joined Gunner, Dave, Lacey and Cocoa in a very special place.

Love & Hugs,
