For the past two months, we’ve been looking after my parents’ dog whilst they’ve been galavanting. It’s said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that is certainly true for Buddy. And as skanky an old dog, that she is, Buddy loves her (and we do too).
He loves her manky old ears and her hanging jowls. He loves her smelly feet ( she has something going on with them that we just can’t get to the bottom of) and her crooked teeth. In his eyes, she is perfection all wrapped up fur and he can’t stop licking her all over.
There have been times when I can see she is tolerating the Buddy Love just because she is a tolerant old dog, but there are other times when I can see she is really enjoying it. Remind you of anything, ladies? And men?
Today will be a sad day for Buddy as Mum and Dad are back. I’ve not told him yet, I want him to enjoy these last few hours.
Mum and Dad will be joining us for Easter and my bet is that Twiggy will go absolutely bonkers when she sees them. I suspect she will then turn her back on Buddy without a second glance and spend the entire afternoon sitting in the back of their car making it quite obvious that she is ready to go home when they are.
I’m sure Buddy will feel lost for a day or two, and maybe his old playmate Zola will forgive him and except him back as her buddy again. Oh, the intricate relationship of dogs!

Buddy love Twiggy so much he even gave his bed up for her. Aren’t dogs funny creatures? She has exactly the same bed on the other side of the room.
I’m sure this won’t be the first and last time he gets his heart broken either.
Have you had to deal with a pet with a broken heart? What was their love interest?
