Buck was a very special woofie. Nana and Grandpa and Mommy rescued him from the pound when he was about a year old. He had some bad scars on him and all agreed that whoever had Buck first tried to turn him into a guard dog, not knowing that Border Collies are herders and never meant to be guard dogs, and got mad when they could not make him vicious. Our family showed him lots of love and he always reciprocated. Mommy says that when they first got him she was going through a hard time in her life and he always knew when she was upset and would lay his head in her lap and refuse to leave her until she felt better. Later, when Mommy met Samwise, she knew she had to keep him beccause he looks so much like Buck does. He was also one of the smartest woofies Mommy ever met. He will be sorely missed.
We ask you to please purr especially for our Nana and Grandpa. They are absolutely heartbroken and Mommy worries because now they are all alone. Doc said he is now on a mission to find them a new special friend, and they have asked Mommy to call Aunt Susan and ask her to do the same. We hope they find a friend as special as Buck. They are certaintly big paws to fill.
